Developing interests into competences

Kay chose VIRO because of the diversity of its clients and projects. Being new to the job market, this was a great way for him to discover what his ambitions were and in which areas. He soon became interested in the organisational side of things. Kay sat down with his supervisor to draw up a Personal Development Plan, so that he could follow his own path and work toward becoming a group leader.

job rotation

From mechanical engineering to engineering analysis

After six years at the Mechanical Engineering department, Rick was eager to know more about the ins and outs of Engineering Analysis. This switch has given him knowledge of both areas of work and has made his job as an engineer even more interesting, as he's now able to connect these two worlds.

sharing knowledge

Familiarise your colleagues with the matter even better

Stefan had the opportunity to set up the shipbuilding department at the Groningen office. As part of a co-development with De Voogt, Stefan first spent eight months at the client's premises to familiarise himself with their working methods. Stefan's on-the-job training meant he could pass on the knowledge he acquired to his own team. The team still meets weekly to share knowledge and experience.
