1. THE CRUX OF WHY YOUR TEAM EXISTS?
We enable the Honan Team to do what they do best by ensuring:
- we have the right technology to run IT systems both in the office and remotely
- we constantly build and improve tools and applications
- we keep Honan’s systems secure and the Cyber bad guys out!
2. QUOTE TO CAPTURE YOUR TEAM’S ETHOS / APPROACH / CULTURE?
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much – Helen Keller.
3. IF WE WERE A SPORTS TEAM, WE’D BE CALLED …
4. GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO 3 PARTNERS YOUR TEAM IS PARTICULARLY INSPIRED BY RIGHT NOW, AND WHY?
The team behind the Employee Benefits platform Zest, for their efficient project management. Zest has been extremely supportive and flexible while working with the Honan team in Asia.
Our technology partner, blueAPACHE continues to be a great support in keeping the lights on at Honan.
ZOOM inspired us with their growth in the market over the course of the Pandemic. They have been a key resource that enabled the Honan team to maintain connectivity during COVID-19.
5. REFLECTING ON THE YEAR TO DATE, HIT US WITH YOUR TEAM’S TOP 3 HEADLINES.
- CITRIX Upgrade: A BIG project to secure our infrastructure and enhance internal efficiencies which we delivered and embedded in a very tight time frame.
- Developing the Honan Client Claims and Reporting portal, giving clients the ability to see their data in big picture form to support their business decisions.
- Building the Client Portal in Asia to enable client file sharing. Not only did this project provide a streamlined tool for our teams to collaborate with their partners, but we also leveraged existing systems to protect against cybersecurity threats.
6. HONAN’S ‘WITH YOU ALL THE WAY’ BRAND PROMISE IS ONE WE’RE PROUD TO HONOUR IN BOTH OUR DEALINGS WITH CLIENTS, BUT INTERNALLY ACROSS THE BUSINESS TOO. WHAT DOES ‘WITH YOU ALL THE WAY’ LOOK LIKE WITHIN YOUR TEAM? HOW DO YOU SUPPORT EACH OTHER THROUGH CHALLENGES AND WINS ALIKE?
We build bridges that connect our staff with their clients; the bigger the bridge, the more clients can cross it and the better their experience becomes. So, for the Technology team, it’s about supporting our teams to better serve Honan’s clients.
7. IF YOU COULD PICK ONE BRILLIANT PERSON – DEAD OR ALIVE – TO JOIN YOUR TEAM, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Sir David Attenborough. He is caring and a pioneer for worldwide change. He has vision and the voice to convey his message. Plus, who doesn’t love David Attenborough!
8. LOOKING AHEAD, WHAT IS YOUR TEAM MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO OVER THE NEXT 6-12 MONTHS?
Getting the Evolution Project (our broking system upgrade) over the line. It’s been a work in progress for over 18 months and has required a lot of input from people across the business.
We have a huge pipeline of projects for FY22, and we can’t wait to get started!
