Evolve as Best-in-Class
In 2019 we set a new ambition: Be Best-in-Class. To us, this means we aim to attract the best talent, then facilitate their growth with coaching and support. By investing in their personal development, we empower our employees to become world-class professionals who in turn feel invested in the success of our company.
Sustainable deployment is one of the essential building blocks of our Be Best-in-Class ambition. We stimulate our people on multiple levels to unleash their entrepreneurship. To do this, we focus on coaching and educating our employees to create a sense of ownership and personal development.
This entrepreneurial mindset helps our employees show resilience, act quickly and take responsibility for each other’s safety. From the management side, we choose to believe in our employees’ capabilities and build a foundation of trust in them. Why is mutual trust so important?
It’s the only way to set up new norms in uncertain times. We’re very proud of how our entire organization came together at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to roll out new safety measures. Everyone contributed suggestions which were immediately put into effect. It’s given us a true sense of togetherness.
To support our best-in-class ambition, we use modern tooling to kickstart dialogue on organizational as well as personal competence development. This includes important topics like know-how, innovativeness & creativity, decisiveness & initiative, organizational discipline and permanent employability.
Diversity & inclusion
TenCate Protective Fabrics aspires to become a more diverse and inclusive company to reflect the diversity of the international markets we’re active in. As a global company, we value people with a global mindset, broad cultural understanding and international experience. We want to attract, develop and retain people with different perspectives, experience and backgrounds to support us in our strategic journey.
Naturally, this means creating equal access to opportunities regardless of identity. We believe it’s only by acknowledging the different perspectives and experiences represented by our employees that we can gain competitive advantage and leverage the effect of diversity for business growth. All of this is only possible with full support and commitment from our organization’s leaders.
For us, inclusive leadership means empowering people to be their best, professionally and personally.
In order to make things more tangible, we are committed to rolling out a complete diversity and inclusion training program by 2022 at the latest – in order to increase awareness and engage our employees in our efforts to reach these important diversity goals.
