“I am grateful that Lincoln Sentry is flexible,” says Teresa Henry, Communication and Campaign Manager at Lincoln Sentry. “The company enabled me to move with my family to the Whitsundays and still continue in my full-time role.”
Teresa says she recently moved with her husband and two children from Brisbane to the Whitsundays, where they purchased a 100-acre farm. Teresa works remotely, consulting with her colleagues via videoconferencing. Once a month she travels to the Lincoln Sentry office in Brisbane, over 1000 km away.
“I found that moving to regional Queensland from Brisbane was no barrier to my continuing on with Lincoln Sentry,” says Teresa. She has been working for Lincoln Sentry for over six years, initially in a part-time capacity but more recently full-time.
Teresa says Lincoln Sentry really cares about its employees, and the low staff turnover is testament to that. She enjoys the flexibility working from home provides: being able to get up early, do a bit of work, then see her children off to school, before returning to her home office.
Teresa graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Business – Communications (Public Relations), and worked in the mining industry for several years before joining Lincoln Sentry.
She is currently involved in promotions and campaigns at Lincoln Sentry. One of the communications’ campaigns Teresa has been working on recently is to promote ‘Occam’s Razor’, Lincoln Sentry’s digital transformation project. In January, Lincoln Sentry went live with SAP, enabling the company to better connect with customers by using insights to understand their needs.
Teresa, who grew up on a farm, is enjoying her return to a laid-back country lifestyle. Her family’s new farm, situated 10 minutes’ drive north of Proserpine, currently has three Brahman cattle but they are growing the herd. Dingo Beach, directly west of Hayman Island, is the family’s closest beach. There they go fishing and crabbing from their boat off-shore.
