Ulli Schmidt came to London in the 1980s to be a pop star. Three decades on she still lives and works in the capital and that free-spiritedness and sense of adventure are still with her too. She may not be earning platinum discs and lighting up Spotify but she is finding rich rewards and satisfaction through the flexibility that Arcadis can offer its employees.
Originally from Germany, Ulli worked in the travel industry for many years before arriving at Arcadis in 2012 as an assistant in the buildings sector. She enjoys the flexibility of a different sort, including recently coordinating a large event marking the global health and safety day and applying to be part of Expedition DNA, a digital program for Arcadis employees.
"I’ve always done digital because of my music. So as part of my application, I created a mini-movie that I put on our Yammer for which I composed the music as I felt it was appropriate for the digital exhibition."
“I feel that here at Arcadis, I can get my fingers into all sorts of pies.” Ulli feels that by offering this kind of flexibility and opportunity Arcadis forges a strong bond with its employees. “By doing that, you get more goodwill, and hopefully loyalty,” she says. “That’s definitely the case for me.”
