Karma Group wouldn’t be the company it is today without the hard work and dedication of our staff members. Thus, we have decided to shine a light each week on some of the people that embody the brand’s core values, and are working hard behind the scenes to make Karma Group what it is today – and in turn, have our Members’ satisfaction at the forefront of their job role.
In the first of our ‘Staff Spotlight’ series, we are delighted to introduce you to…
Juni Setiawan – Karma Odyssey Navigator
Where are you from and how long have you been working for Karma Group?
I’m from Negara Regency, Bali. I started working here in June 2018, so almost 4 years ago.
What is it like to work in the Karma Odyssey team?
It is challenging, but has given me lots of new experiences. I have built many strong relationships with both Members and colleagues, they are like family to me.
What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
I like to go to the gym and watch movies, sometimes I also play the guitar.
Which of our Karma Group resorts would you recommend the most to Members and why?
Karma Kandara! First, I would recommend Karma Kandara because of the beautiful scenery and secondly, the villas themselves are beautiful. There are also lots of things to do in the area.
What is your favourite part of working in the Karma Odyssey Team?
I would say gaining new skills and learning how to maintain relationships with people from other cultures. I have a close friendship with all the Members that I deal with and love hearing about their life experiences.
What’s something about you (a fun fact) that not many people know?
I can speak Mandarin fluently, which sometimes can surprise people!
Who, within the company, is the biggest inspiration for you?
I would say both of my managers, David Hadson and Jessica Whytcross. When we have any sort of problem, they are both quick to find a solution that works for both the Member and for the company.
What motivates you to do well?
My family! I would like to be a good role model for my son and I never want to let him down. He always takes an interest in my work and I love to share the experiences I have with him. My job inspires him to study hard and Lyddea Harrison, my colleague, is even helping me give English lessons to my son.
