Global talent connects via Arcadis international transfer program

 September 11, 2018

Structural Engineer, Anusha Srihari, joined Arcadis' international transfer program called Quest because she was looking to enhance her professional knowledge. She travelled miles from Bangalore in India to Baton Rouge in the USA to build on an even stronger relationship with her co-workers abroad. Here is Anusha's story.

Why did I apply for a Quest

"My name is Anusha Srihari and I am a Structural Engineer in GEC India, as part of the US Water Team. I applied for a Quest to enhance my knowledge on various technical aspects by interacting with my counterparts in Arcadis US (Baton Rouge) office. Having worked on various projects in the US region, I was looking for an opportunity to build a professional relationship with the team there.

“Maintaining a good relationship between the GEC and US team will lead to better collaboration and success."

Highlight of my Quest experience

"As a part of the US Water Team it is important to have good technical knowledge of the Codes and Standards used for designing the structures in the US region. Quest gave me an opportunity to interact with people there. This helped me a lot to get a better understanding of Codes and Standards of that region. During my Quest, I also established a good professional relationship with colleagues in the US office, which has helped GEC to collaborate with the broader US Water Team. Finally, this Quest also gave me several insights on the current work culture in the US Region.

"My Quest in one word: Insightful.”

Learnings and experiences

"It was a very good learning experience to gain knowledge from colleagues who are close to the business in the region I work for. Moreover, I had the chance to showcase the capabilities of GEC India. 

"I would recommend my colleagues in GEC India to go on a Quest as well, to gain as much knowledge as possible and build relationships with their counterparts abroad, because it is very useful when doing business."
