Aisjah Karijoredjo about #MazarsForGood

Aisjah Karijoredjo, senior assistant audit, explains what sustainability means to her and gives examples of how she sees the MazarsForGood theme within the organization.

What does sustainability mean to you?

For me, sustainability means the awareness to maintain or improve our world, so that future generations will also be able to enjoy it. It is therefore a broad concept that is constantly changing. When you think about sustainability, the environment often springs to mind immediately. But I think it is also about developing and passing on knowledge and working on a great society.

How do you see the topic MazarsForGood within our organisation?

I see the theme of MazarsForGood featured in several ways within the organisation, of which I think the active discussion on workload and the activities of the Mazars Foundation are great initiatives. This shows that MazarsForGood is focused on the pursuit of sustainability in retaining people, and also on the pursuit of a better world by stimulating volunteering.

Working on a better working environment for the Mazarian by actively thinking about how working conditions could be improved, for example to create a proper work-life balance. In recent years, we have taken various initiatives to reduce the workload within our audit practice. In several sessions within our office and also with other Mazars offices, the pressure of work was discussed. In addition, I see MazarsForGood in making choices about whether or not to accept clients, which consideration also takes into account the capacity needed to carry out new assignments and whether this capacity is available.

This shows that Mazars is not just about profit but definitely also about people. This way, the organisation may retain people for a longer period of time. The initiatives of the Mazars Foundation allow the Mazarian to make a social contribution by using their professional expertise on a voluntary basis to help others in society.

Do you have an example of sustainable working conditions at Mazars?

Since I joined Mazars two years ago, I haven’t felt that only work is important. I myself have a family with two children; at times, it can be busy at work, but yet I do not experience the workload to be as high as with my previous employers. You are not expected to work both on weekdays and on the weekends, but you are encouraged to create a good work-life balance. The sessions in which we talk about workload and work-life balance and possibilities to work from home one day a week make me feel that I can easily combine working at Mazars with my family. So I won’t be looking for another challenge soon. Mazars also offers the possibility of working part-time. I don’t do that myself, but I am reminded that it is possible and that’s nice to know. Mazars offers me sufficient learning and career opportunities and that is a reason for me to stay.
