Long-term employees and support for potential


I have been working at proxomed as a commercial manager since 2000 and haven’t had a boring day since then. The tasks change and grow, and we are skilled in finding flexible, innovative solutions and taking proactive decisions. This makes work exciting.

proxomed places great value on long-term relationships, whether with customers or employees. For this reason, we have lower-than-average staff turnover, with work relationships that are long compared to the present-day standard. Many employees who have temporarily left to take on other challenges return later or continue to work on a freelance basis.

Personally, I am of the opinion that every employee has their own unrecognised potential. This is why we have a staff appraisal at least once a year, in which each member of staff’s challenges in their role, personal preferences and career goals are discussed. This is the raw material for offering the best possible support to employees and may result in further training, a change of role or a promotion. Regular training is important to me because every employee needs the opportunity to develop further.

Also super important to me is that our interpersonal exchange occurs at eye-level – no matter what role you play in the company. This is supported by our “open door” principle and our employees who like to use their own initiative and stay part of the conversation, identifying suitable further training and development options and making them a reality.
