The 'new way of working'
Our way of working has changed since the pandemic. We always had the opportunity to work from home, but since last year we expect to continue to work from home a lot in the future. You can take advantage of this because distance no longer has to be an obstacle, our vision for the future is on average 2 days a week to the office for team sessions, for example. Of course you will be supported digitally by our team, which is now used to this new way of working.
