16 November 2022 | Ep.81 – looking under the hood: Kaveh Andisheh

In this episode of Stirring the Pot we’re talking with our General Manager of Structural Systems, Kaveh Andisheh.

One thing we have come to recognise is that one of the strengths of HERA is our amazing multi-cultural team who bring their life experiences to the table every day to inform and develop our research, training and project work. The twists and turns they have taken in their life and career pathway make for some interesting insights into who they are, what they value, and where their thought process and decision making comes from.

This is something we have started to unravel in our ‘Whanaungatanga 101’ (kinship & connection 101) approach we have taken through the year, where each of our team have shared their personal story. This has been part of our commitment to mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) in the workplace – which has asked us to culturally shift our general approach to relationship building from introducing ourselves as someone who does a particular role at a business, to someone who you know from a much more relational and personal way.

An extension of this learning, is to now share some of our stories with you with our ‘looking under the hood’ podcast series where we’ll chat with our team members about what makes them who they are, and how they apply that to the mahi (work) they do here at HERA.
