Gail’s story

Meet Gail. She is a member of the dedicated and hard-working team from OC Connections Enterprises (OCCE).

Gail’s role as Senior Supervisor at OCCE involves receiving stock, getting work out, dealing with customers, setting up jobs, supporting the supervisors and supported employees to assist in the completion of packing jobs.

Gail has been in her role for approximately two years. Her favourite parts of the job are supporting people to achieve their goals, the variety of tasks, and the interaction with customers. She especially enjoys how well her team works together.

She said that the COVID-19 period has made the year a challenging one. Having to manage the commercial customer requirements and work closely with the supported employees while being short-staffed was a real challenge for the team.

For Gail, she gets the most joy from achieving the personal goals she has set for herself and working with the supported employees to help them achieve their goals.

Gail aspires to develop her computer skills and apply these new skills in her role.

After a tough 2020, our OCCE team member wants to return to the things she loves, like being outdoors. She can’t wait to spend time with family, especially her gorgeous grandson Leo. In 2021, she might even get back to her other passion, snow skiing!
