Director Customer Success

Mel Hamling

Mel has joined the #dreamteam to help ensure our Workplace clients are getting the best out of this channel to engage their people, create a meaningful community at work and reach business goals. There are always new features being rolled out on Workplace and matching these to a particular client need is Mel’s priority to ensure success. She’s a Workplace user from Ye Olde Days when it was first piloted in Australia and loves being on the journey of building communities at work.

What is your nickname? Melsie or Little Miss Sunshine

What were you doing before Enablo? Filming NSW Fisheries scientists catching and tagging sharks in Sydney Harbour and along the NSW coast! As well as managing the NSW DPI Workplace community, creating video collateral for external communications campaigns and strategic internal communications for our people. Oh, and before that I used to read the TV news!

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? One employer agnostic dynamic employee profile that travels with you to new roles and new organisations, and a streamlined, accessible dashboard that speaks to your company’s HR/Corporate Services system so that employees can easily access relevant information, forms, payroll and benefits.

What excites you most about Enablo? The Enablo team is choc-full of thought leaders, inspiring community managers and tech engineering superstars – we are helping companies become communities every single day, and being part of this is really energising.

What is the achievement you’re most proud of? Being a mum to three boys and ensuring they grow up to be the men we need to see in the world – kind, empathetic, genuine, reliable and honest. And in a career sense – going from the ‘video shop girl’ to the first to be employed as a journalist in my uni year.

What’s your vision of Employee Experience for the future? These current uncertain times have placed a spotlight on the need for corporate resilience and the ability to embrace virtual collaboration tools and practices. I believe the future of employee experience is fluid and employees seamlessly flow between different apps and tools. Transparency, authenticity and connectivity will be crucial for companies to continue to innovate and adapt quickly.

What is the achievement you’re most proud of and why? My 5 minutes of fame when I was on the Dutch version of “So You Think You Can Dance”. Not so much because I love the spotlight (although I secretly do), mostly because it was an amazing achievement after an incredibly hard time.  I spent over 3 years in a wheelchair and on crutches after a bad injury and was told I might not walk

What’s your vision of Employee Experience for the future? Employee experience and culture will be more important than ever post-2020! It will demand better, more transparent communication and more visible, authentic leadership. Organisations will need to have a people-first mentality paired with human-first technology to attract great talent and succeed long-term.

What’s the one thing you couldn’t live without?:

I’ll be another one of those people, but can I say my dog, Chloe? She’s such an intelligent funny little thing that makes me feel so stupidly happy. Loves sticks, hates water, will do anything for chicken.

What is your nickname? As a child it was Toots, in later years it was Shinners!

What were you doing before Enablo? I was part of an awesome team who founded and grew a SaaS intranet company in London.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? I don’t think it’s even a case of work from home versus work from the office anymore. In order to attract and retain talent, companies now need to get behind the idea of ‘work from anywhere’, with work being something we do, not necessarily somewhere we go. Location is irrelevant. This means incredible software that supports this concept and in some cases, meeting the demands that organizations may not even realize they’ll need to support in the future. I’ve been in this space a long time and believe that Enablo has pulled together an incredible trifecta in terms of best of breed software that will allow organizations to get behind this concept.

What excites you most about Enablo? The culture and energy was palpable on day one. I couldn’t ask to join a more vibrant company at the most exciting time, as we scale at pace. A fully immersive online workplace is the future and I’m humbled and excited to have a front row seat.

What is the achievement you’re most proud of?
I’ve hiked through the jungle in Borneo, trekked through an open-plain walking safari, and gone shark diving in Africa. I’ve camped in the Brazilian Amazon as well co-founded and grown a SaaS company in London – all a cake walk compared to motherhood! As cliched as it sounds, my proudest achievements are almost 4 and 6 years old!

What were you doing before Enablo? I spent a lot of time transporting my taste buds to restaurants around the world and connecting people through the joys of food – from my desk! Seriously though, I led the brand and marketing for a hospo tech startup in its hyper-growth phase across six global markets.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? Compassionate leadership with a focus on mental wellbeing. Increased global collaborations. More automation, more humans. Consistency and care for all employees – frontline to HQ and everyone in between. For the relationships between tech, experience and business results to FLOURISH.

What excites you most about Enablo? The dream team at Enablo walk the talk – from onboarding to unreal partnerships to employee experience (even the pets get a seat at the table), it’s a beautiful place to be. And with a third of our lives spent at work, I’m excited to be a part of the magic helping distributed organisations around the world do their best work, together.

What’s your all-time favourite app? Zwift, an online cycling game and training program that enables you to ride, train and compete in a virtual world. You connect your bike to a special device called a smart trainer and when you pedal it moves your avatar throughout the game providing real time resistance through a flywheel which simulates the environment you are riding in (hilly or flat). It is the closest thing to cycling in the real world without actually stepping foot out your door, a blessing during the lockdowns we have experienced throughout COVID.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? I see the workplace of the future blending our personal and work lives in a way that feels more natural, not as two distinctly different modes of life.

With the right levels of support, communication, and transparency, I think there is a huge opportunity to create an culture that is both conducive to productivity and personal well-being.

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? Employees have a lot of choices regarding where they want to work. People’s experience engaging with a company and its community is more critical than it has ever been before. Communication must be clear and often, with a positive work culture promoted through diversity, inclusion, creativity, and empowerment. With a hybrid or dispersed workforce, it’s also more challenging than ever before. I keep hearing about this thing called the ‘Metaverse’, and I’m really excited to learn more! 😀

What excites you most about Enablo? It’s so exciting to be a part of the next chapter in the evolution of Enablo! I’m thrilled to be here at the beginning of the transformation of the business. I love the motto ‘work out loud’ and it’s been clear from day one that this culture promotes collaboration and respect for one another. I intend to do my best to keep that front of mind as we grow and scale the business.

How do you continue to grow and develop as a leader? Growth, development, and learning never stops – no matter where you are in your career. I aspire to stay curious and learn from each situation I’m faced with, identifying key take-aways I can bring to the next challenge.

What is your nickname? Andrew. (I’ve lived overseas too long. Only Aussies seem to want to give everyone a nickname).

What were you doing before Enablo? I was running Verizon for the Publicis Groupe based in New York. Great team, exciting times (launch of 5G). A few challenges along the way (this little thing called Covid and the merger of T-Mobile & Sprint). But most importantly, we delivered fantastic results! I would have loved a better way to engage my team, though…

What’s your vision of employee experience for the future? One where there is much greater alignment between the objectives of the organization and the goals of individual employees. The opportunity to create meaningful work, facilitated by transparent communication built on a foundation of engagement and trust. Employee commitment will directly correlate to overall business performance and will be focused on as a way to create a distinct competitive advantage.

What excites you most about Enablo? To make a genuine and positive difference to the companies we partner with. To see the change in the way their employees engage. To observe the impact it has on their financial performance. And to play a role in building this fantastic company called Enablo that will help make it all happen!

What’s the most important trait you look for when hiring employees? Curiosity. Constantly wanting to learn and grow. In working out if there is a better way to do things that will deliver greater impact. In attempting to understand consumers in whatever form, what motivates them, and the opportunities that presents as a result. In life, by being open to possibilities and the potential that arises from those – especially by working at Enablo!
