As a global business, our people are now thinking globally and beyond the country in which they are based. In line with this we are now in our second year in our exchange program between Europe and Australia / New Zealand. The objective is to share our talent, to share our knowledge and to build a better global understanding of our business and our customers.
Gabrielle Fage, Graduate Coordinator in our Melbourne Training Team, recently took off to the Netherlands to take part in the 12 month program and in turn we are happy to welcome Sander Vreeburg from our European business into our team in Brisbane. The exchange of ideas, of concepts and cultures are set to not only enrich Gabby and Sander but will also benefit the operations in which they are based, and those they will return to.
Our inaugural exchange program team member, Martin Wierzbicki, is now back on Australian soil and ready to implement all his knowledge gained from his exchange into our Somerton logistics branch. Of his 12 months in the logistics branch in ‘s-Heerenberg, Netherlands Martin notes “the collaboration with new people and new environment allowed me to learn new methods of operations and gave me the opportunity to learn and grown with our global company.”
