Born out of frustration and a burning desire to improve customer experience, OOMPH prides itself on thinking differently and being disruptive. Our mantra is 'why do we need to replicate the old wet fuel stations in the 21st Century' and the reality is we don't.

Placing consumers at the heart of everything we do helps us to create better products. At OOMPH, being people-centric is a way of life, it's in our DNA and you can hear from Sarah Page, People Operations Lead at OOMPH discussing how she has intentionally shaped her role to one that focuses on people over process. For Sarah, it's all about creating a sense of belonging.

You can listen to the conversation in full HERE

Sarah has a diverse experience from working in public, private, start-up, and corporate companies and has learned what works and what doesn't. In this podcast episode, Lisa and Sarah talk about the key elements that have made the role at OOMPH so successful.

Key Takeaways:

  • The impact of different approaches that help reveal blind spots

  • Having an open mindset and a disruptive approach to working

  • Culture add vs fit for culture

  • And the power of diversity

Sarah is passionately sustainable, a little bit nerdy about tech (and excel), and a lover of people, so it’s no surprise she finds herself working in the EV sector for one of the coolest companies in Cambridge - OOMPH EV Charging. A Female founded clean-tech start-up that is developing the technology to deliver an EV charge top-up, when and where you need it. Helping to remove the barriers to EV ownership by putting the consumer first. Sarah's focus at Oomph is both to talent spot and help foster a culture that supports diversity, inclusion, and belonging. To build an environment that focuses on people and their experience, making work more efficient, fulfilling, rewarding, and enjoyable for all.

Over the coming months we will be putting the feelers out for more disruptive people to join our team, so keep your eyes peeled on our social channels.
