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 all-time favorite app? At the moment, Google Translate – we have a multilingual household.

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? For every employee to see or feel meaning in their work that ultimately leaves them inspired and/or fulfilled. It’s a big vision but one that Workplace can definitely help with! Workplace really changed the game for me. 

What’s the thing you couldn’t live without? So I just (2 days ago at the time of writing) got a puppy… his name is Basil and he’s the cutest ball of energy. I think I’d be a bad dog mum if I didn’t say him!?

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 your vision of employee experience for the future? There’s a quote that has stuck with me for many years now – “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Our feelings are pretty powerful, and I want to make sure that those feelings are positive.

What excites you most about Enablo? Honestly, it’s difficult to narrow it down.

What is the achievement you’re most proud of? Hiking the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea in 2012.

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.

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.

Who would you want to be stuck on a desert island with and why? Sara Blakely from SPANX. She’s every woman’s entrepreneurial cheerleader, and I’m eagerly awaiting my first-class plane tickets.
