On Monday 25 November, Facilicom Group hosted 650 guests during its annual anniversary reception at the Beatrix Theatre in Utrecht. This year, 483 employees have been employed for 12.5 years, 69 employees for 25 years and no fewer than 25 employees celebrate their 40th anniversary. Traditionally at this annual reception, all employees celebrating their anniversaries are honoured for their many years of dedication to the organisation.
Facilicom has been pursuing an active and sustainable employability policy for years now. Under this policy, Facilicom ensures that employees enjoy coming to work, feeling healthy and fit, until retirement age. The balance between work and home, health and energy, specialist knowledge and skills, and motivation and commitment is paramount.
Last year, Facilicom Group committed itself to introducing the theme of happiness at work. ‘This is also clearly evident from the long-term employment witnessed at Facilicom Group,’ explains Geert van de Laar. ‘Our employees feel like they are a member of the team. These days, that is certainly a valuable commodity. It is also the best way for Facilicom to retain valuable knowledge and experience, and to guarantee continuity with our clients. Especially at a time of labour shortages, it is a win-win situation.’
