In 2022, a new leadership program linked to our People Strategy was initiated. Together with managers, the needs of an organization in transition were analyzed. Van Leeuwen aims to retain its existing core values in this respect, such as customer focus, innovative entrepreneurship and a focus on cooperation and sharing knowledge within our international network. In addition, we are developing new, measurable competencies, such as strategic thinking, digital skills and operating successfully in an increasingly more complex global market. We are also working together to determine the kind of leaders required by a modern company. Motivating and coaching employees and creating highly effective teams play a key role in this respect.
