Our hashtag to tell existing and new employees what we stand for as an employer. But also the hashtag that conveys our pride. We have plenty of strengths and daily successes to celebrate.

A new batch of up-and-coming talent in our (virtual) workplace

We love "both-and" thinking. It's part of our Positive Digital Flow philosophy and is embedded in our workplace – after all, combinations are usually stronger. For years now, we have been combining sound expertise with the infectious enthusiasm of young, talented individuals who we support through our acADDemICTs training program. In February, we opened our doors to another 20 talented young people. How do we make sure they hit the ground running, especially since we are all still working from home as much as possible? And why did they choose this program above all? Let's hear from some of our new colleagues!

Certain challenges may sometimes appear to be conflicting, or even perceived as counter-intuitive, although our expertise can demonstrate that this doesn't have to be the case. Nevertheless, there are a number of points to consider. Here is a shortlist of examples.
