It is a key priority for us to understand how we can improve our employees working experience. In 2023 we are conducting an employee survey to understand how our employees evaluate working at Van Hessen and what are the highest priority areas for improvement. We intend to improve the employee experience at both a global and local level with group and region-specific teams to address the priority topics identified by our valued team members.
