Ozlem Yildiz on her first 30 days at Attain

Back to Our Staff

Tell us a little bit about yourself

I have been a practice-based researcher with deep interest and passion for healthcare operations management. In my 10 years of experience in healthcare operations management research in the US – both as a faculty member and doctoral researcher, I have conducted several process and incentive design projects, some in collaboration with large US teaching hospitals. I live in London with my partner, and when not working, I love to practice piano, do yoga or take long walks.

How have your first 30 days been at Attain?

My first 30 days have been very enjoyable. Although I joined the team at a time when all of us are working from home due to the pandemic, it was great to see how everyone has been very welcoming and generous with their time and help. Virtually meeting with colleagues from a wide range of background who share the same passion to support the NHS and learning about their experience at Attain and beyond have been among the highlights from my first 30 days at the firm. I also got to be part of a wonderful delivery team and work on a very interesting project since my first week.

Besides a detailed virtual induction program, having buddies (your own support contact within the company) who are always there for a friendly chat have been immensely helpful in my first month to navigate the transition.

What attracted you to Attain?

I joined Attain to have the opportunity to work with a great team whose experience span across a very wide range and who are passionate to drive real change in the health and care sector. My first 30 days at Attain have been a testament to the dedication, time and energy of the wonderful people I get to work with

What’s the best thing about being employed with Attain?

The best thing is to be in this supportive environment where reaching out to people and asking for help is very much encouraged. No matter how busy they are, everyone takes the time to support you, help you leverage your skills and knowledge and encourage you to progress in alignment with your personal development goals.

What do you hope the future brings for you with Attain?

I am currently about to complete a very interesting project that will have a big impact on improving the health of hard-to-reach communities in a health system. I hope to continue to work on projects that are similarly engaging, impactful and allow me to broaden my knowledge and skills.
