Attracting and retaining the right talent for your division:

  • HR Leadership: You manage, lead and coach a team of 4 dedicated HR employees (2 per site). Together – as a team – you follow our HR KPI’s  (absenteeism, turnover, time to recruit, …) and you take the necessary actions to support the business in the best possible way.
