“Developing talent is essential to our future. "
By exploiting talent to the max, Airbus DS NL aims to guarantee continuity in quality. Now and in the future. According to Director Operations Michel Rog, it is important to focus on professional development at an early stage. “By instilling awareness in talented colleagues, we open the door to them to grow into the highest positions within our organisation.”
“And we don’t make a secret of it, by the way. If we qualify someone as being a talent, they hear about it immediately. And what that news brings about in people is a sight to see. I’ve noticed that their willingness to take on other tasks grows. They’ll register as a keynote speaker, for instance, or organise lunch sessions. By devoting attention to talent, we create greater bonding and talented people are assured that they will be given the space they need to develop their careers.”
“I know from my own experience that Airbus provides space for development. I started out as a test engineer, but it soon transpired that I had leadership qualities. I subsequently fulfilled several positions in which I headed up teams, and I was given the opportunity to side-step into a role as financial controller. We’re now a number of years down the road and I’m a member of the Airbus DS NL management team. I don’t think that elsewhere I would have been given the many opportunities I’ve had here. It’s a mark of the organisation.”
