In addition to knowledge, we like to invest in the well-being of our employees. We do this physically, through the weekly boot camp and the free fruit we offer, but also through fun. We have an active staff association with a well-filled activities agenda, which provides, for example, a drink or barbecue at the office or something fun for the children at Christmas.
