Hospitainer strives to be generous. We have occasionally lowered our prices or donated resources to ensure that those who need medical care the most do not need to bankrupt themselves to get it. However, Hospitainer is still a for-profit company and that means that we do need to check if we can afford to keep the lights on every now and then. As such, we’re happy to have to Daniel as our financial administrator.
Daniel obtained a degree in business economics and worked for several years at a financial consultancy firm. However, he eventually decided to chase a long-held dream and began to study theology. Once he’d obtained that degree as well, Daniel spent the next 20 years working as a minister for various churches.
At the end of those two decades, however, Daniel once again began working as a financial consultant, though as a freelancer this time. He was hired on as Hospitainer’s financial administrator for one day per week and, at time of writing, he’s been with the team for just over a year.
When asked what he enjoyed about working with Hospitainer, Daniel’s enthusiasm was obvious. He spoke excitedly about the positive atmosphere in the office, how everyone is eager to work together and help each other and how he missed working in the office because of COVID-19. Daniel went on to say that he felt that Hospitainer’s mobile, modular hospitals were a great product and that he fully supported our mission to bring medical care to those who might otherwise struggle to get it.
“It’s a combination of a great team, a good product and a fantastic mission.”
When asked what it takes to work for Hospitainer, Daniel emphasized the importance of being able to go with the flow. He felt it was vital for people to be flexible enough to adapt to both the slow and busy periods at Hospitainer, as natural disasters or viral outbreaks can mean we suddenly have very important orders that need to be filled very quickly. He explained that, especially during these busy periods, it helps to be passionate about the company’s mission and that it’s best not to cling to a nine-to-five mentality.
“I’m only really here once per week, but if I get a request to handle something quickly on Monday, I’m not gonna tell them to wait until Wednesday. Sometimes you have to be flexible and help out.”
