Work tools have been adapted to allow employees to work when and where they want.

A more flexible HR framework

  • Eliminating badging
  • Remote working
  • Trust-based work scheduling
  • Well-being at work
  • Optimisation of personal efficiency

The new work organisational structure aims to grant employees greater autonomy and enable a better balance between their work and private lives.

Innovative management focussed on a results-driven culture

  • The employee and his line manager together agree on the results to be achieved
  • Better planning of the objectives to be achieved
  • Improved tracking of results
  • Responsibility and autonomy on behalf of the employee

In the relationship between manager and employee, trust and collaboration predominate, which promotes engagement and fulfilment at work.
