Meet Dominique Sivak, Chief People Officer at ZencargoDec 23, 2021
My name is Dominique Sivak, and I am the Chief People Officer (CPO) at Zencargo.
As the CPO at Zencargo, I oversee the growth, culture, performance, and working harmony of the beautiful people and teams within our organisation.
Ask almost anybody at Zencargo, and they’ll say that one of the main reasons they love working here is because of the people.
No matter how much technology an organisation uses to achieve its goals, it’s the passionate people behind it who create and build a healthy and thriving business.
Using a roadmap created from our values, we strive to ensure that everybody is working in a safe space that helps keep them engaged. We aim to help our people deliver their best, and we collaborate together for optimal outcomes.
With so much growth within the company, every day presents new challenges and opportunities for improvement.
No two days are ever the same; that’s one of the many reasons it’s so exciting to work on the People Team.
Maintaining Values Through Growth
Although Zencargo has grown a lot in just a few years, we believe that having a positive, value-driven culture is the unshakable foundation that will direct us far into the future.
As we grow, we want to include people who believe in and uphold our values of creative thinking, cooperation, dedication, and desire to make the world a better place.
That’s why our interview process includes a Values Interview.
Everybody’s individual values are just as important as our company’s, but when there’s alignment between the two, that helps create the best environment for everybody.
Having that as part of the interview process also encourages a more holistic approach towards hiring. For us, it’s not just about “do you have this experience?”, it’s more about, “do you have the drive to learn new things and grow within the company?”
Who Should Apply?
Because we’re expanding so rapidly, we’re looking for motivated people with a range of skills and backgrounds.
Talent acquisition specialists, especially for the tech and commercial side, are vital for our plans in becoming leaders in this industry.
On the people side, we’re always looking for administrative support to strengthen our growth and bolster high-volume teams and new initiatives on an international level.
However, we’re not just dedicated to filling specific roles. We want people who are driven to solve problems and expand their knowledge and experience. We want them to be inspired to exchange their knowledge with others and be motivated to be a part of something bigger.
Our values are the behaviors that we want to see reflected in every person in our company.
Making a Difference
We aim to bring in people that want to make a difference in the world.
Zencargo is attempting to disrupt a trillion-dollar industry that has been broken for decades. There is a lot of potential in freight forwarding, and we want to be a part of the movement towards a more efficient and transparent supply chain.
We have the technology and the drive to do it, but scaling to the level we’re looking for means the day-to-day work won’t always be easy. And every startup has obstacles, but that’s part of the excitement of working with one!
However, not everybody wants to work in an environment with that kind of acceleration and innovation. That’s why we frontload our hiring process with value-driven goals.
We want every person to feel like the challenges, new opportunities, and positive effects they have during their time with Zencargo are worthwhile.
