Introducing Team Member of the Month: Terhi Norokorpi

Meet the people behind DISQO's success

Terhi Norokorpi is a Sr. People Operations Specialist, overseeing culture and development for DISQO's Finland office. 

What do you love most about your job?

The people. I love getting to know more about them, connecting with them, supporting them, and even teaching them new things - so they can concentrate on our business. I also get to organize fun events for us to enjoy. If I can make someone's day smoother, I'm very happy!

What does your ideal Saturday look like?

Our three cats have slept quietly through the night (you said ideal!) so I wake up refreshed at 9 am. The sun is shining and I have breakfast on the balcony, enjoying my plants and flowers and the communal garden below. Then, we'll visit antique fairs and second hand markets. In the afternoon, I'll read a book on my pretty balcony. In the evening, it's sauna and a swim in the pool, then a good film before bedtime, and some more reading in bed.

What's one of your favorite or proudest DISQO moments?

It's difficult to pick just one, but I want to say the Beyond Boundaries D&I ERG. It's given me insight into important experiences, but also the opportunity to get to know people I'd maybe not have met otherwise. I love connecting. It makes the world a little easier to navigate and boosts the feeling of belonging. I'm very proud of the group's International Women's Day webinar!

What was the last TV show you binged watched?

Major Crimes. I love police and hospital dramas, and the main character in Major Crimes, Captain Sharon Raydor, is a bit of an idol to me.

What's something most people don't know about your role?

Being in People Ops - and the only representative in Finland - is so varied. I get to do a host of different things, like storing IT equipment and DISQO swag. I also help onboard our employees and contractors, not just us in Finland, so I get to connect with DISQO people all over the world!

Tell us one fun fact about yourself!

My birthday is on January 1. I was the first baby of the year born in my hometown.
