From its foundation, our company has consistently encouraged everyone to "make the most of their abilities". Today as a global company, we maintain this commitment to supporting all colleagues to realise their full potential. We view the personal and professional development of colleagues as a shared responsibility between the company and the individual.
You bring the drive and motivation; your manager provides support and encouragement and the company supplies the necessary tools and programmes. We believe that when colleagues have opportunities for development, they gain the capabilities, confidence and motivation to continually contribute to our present and future business success.
Our approach to career development starts with attracting talented people to our company. Within the company, we provide them a fulfilling and stretching experience by giving them the support and resources they need to grow and to contribute to our business success. Depending on their career stage, different colleagues have different needs and expectations. We aim to help everyone develop in line with their ambitions and abilities and the demands of our business.
