Melita Omerza

PROCESSES AND TRAINING MANAGER FOR QUALITY AND EXCELLENCE AT ROCHE SLOVENIA

Melita Omerza, a pharmacist by education, devoted most of her career in marketing. During this time, she realised that working with people and for people is something that is most satisfactory for her. That is why she spends most of her time coaching and introducing approaches to increase efficiency in the company.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE WE COULD BE IF EVERYONE COULD CHOOSE WHAT HE OR SHE WOULD LIKE TO DO?

A doubting Thomas would probably say that not very far, but at Roche Slovenia, they found that the shift from “human resource management” to putting people and company culture at the core can take us places. With the “Roled Based Work” project, they made a step further than sorting people by position and sharing work tasks. They prefer to develop responsibilities for certain activities and tasks, as well as networking, which enables the transfer and acquisition of new knowledge, strengthens collegiality and a sense of belonging. Instead of a firmly rooted description of assigned works and tasks, they are more interested in the individual’s interests and abilities. They want to be one cell, but they allow it to divide and develop into smaller ones even outside the established framework.
