Job Culture

The culture is reality. What isn’t written down that is just as critical as the formalized rules.

Organizational culture is defined as the expectation of the organization towards its employees and from itself, the philosophy it carries, the values that it embodies, and its interactions with each of the stakeholders. They are a bunch of customs, traditions, and beliefs that the company wants to emulate everywhere without any aberration

Physically and Mentally Demanding Workplace

A typical day at work- Being a SMO, my job profile is doing advocacy and supporting the district in surveillance activities(Vaccine Preventable Disease Surveillance), strengthening of routine immunization activities, pulse polio immunization activities, supporting district in newer vaccines launch & roll out. Learning-My profile as SMO has helped me grow as a public health professional.I have learned doing data analysis and advocacy with the analysed data with the district health officials for strengthening of various program indicators.My profile has given me the opportunity to working as a team with different WHO colleagues working in the district as well as working as a team with partner agencies with predefined role and responsibility of each partner agency. Management-I am overall responsible for my team comprising of an Administrative Assistant, Drivers and Field Monitors. Workplace Culture-It is good as you are part of a small WHO family in the district. Hardest Part of Job- When the data based feedback is not taken positively by the district health department. Most Enjoyable part of Job-When the suggestions for strengthening of health indicators are acknowledged and implemented by the district administration.

Pros

Appreciation of your work by the District eg. by District Magistrate

Cons

Monotonous Job, Long working Hours, Difficulty in Work Life Balance

Exemplary International Organization.

A typical day at work was very encouraging and the day ended with so many new challenges addressed as well as to be addressed. Very encouraging and open work culture and flexibility of work time/schedule. Interacting with people at various cadres: from Chief Minister-Health Minister-Principal Secretary-Director Health services to district officials, including district magistrates to grass-root level workers like Angan Wadi and ASHA. Public health demands managing program and managing people: More challenging is managing PEOPLE. I did it well! Hardship is an integral part of public health job in WHO. Demanding geographical terrains in Bihar and North East are learning experiences. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see a smile on the face of the parents in Kosi riverine villages in Bihar, when their children receive any vaccine for the first time in their life. This made my day.

Pros

Happy work culture.

Cons

World Health Organization

It is an honor to be even associated with WHO, the last few months have been very rewarding for me. I have learnt the value of evidence based decision making for advocacy and policy making purpose here. The work culture is very good, everyone is highly cooperative and is always ready to offer a helping hand. The value of team work at WHO is exemplary. The passion that drives the employees at WHO is inspiring as well and has motivated me to do any job at hand with my heart and soul soaked in it.
