Career development

Does anyone know you better than you know yourself? Probably not. That's why we don't provide a 'one solution fits all', but the support you need to discover where your interests and skills lie, and help further your development.

During 2019, we spent over €16.9 million on training and career development programs for our employees around the world. In addition to formal training we also offer global e-learning programs, on-the-job training, coaching, self-discovery and a wide variety of other programs are readily available to help you develop.

Working in an international environment, where you're encouraged to voice new ideas and to make things happen, you will also learn from best practices established by colleagues around the world, and by doing.

Encouraging innovation

We'll give you the scope to test and experiment with new innovations, work in (global) project teams made up of different functions and nationalities, and give you the opportunity to listen to our customers or other stakeholders.

Innovation Hub

In many of our businesses around the world, we also have formalized groups to encourage innovation. In the United States for example, we have Innovation Hubs, designed to speed up the implementation of innovative ideas. Innovation Hubs are put together using employees from all levels and functions within the organization.

And in the UK we use "Hubs", which give employees live and instant access to a customers, potential customers or adivisors, to test anything from a new concept to whether the content of a letter is clear.
