Good leaders make their employees develop and thrive. That is why we invest in our leaders. Those who progress to a senior position are offered leadership training at various levels. In addition, you participate in recurring mandatory management weeks where you are updated in strategy work and leadership.

We believe in learning on the job. We also believe in providing development opportunities that meet the needs of our business and our employees. Today and in the future.

Our employees' abilities to take responsibility for their own development and leading others according to our company's values, is just as important as having the right core competence. Development and learning must be directed towards today's and tomorrow's needs.
