Working cooperatively instead of competitively
I have been taking on new challenges for more than three years, helped by the company's professional onboarding process, which integrated me in the organisation, and the positive working atmosphere. As a result, I find myself in a confidence-inspiring working environment that supports me as I make use of new ideas and methods. Our corporate culture is based on independent working, enabled by personal creative freedom. This gives me the confidence to transform my own technical knowledge into recommendations for action.
Passion, service and partnerships
Long-term partnerships with our suppliers and customers are more important to us than an opportunistic one-off sale. We do our job with passion and are happy to go the extra mile for our customers.
Service is part of our DNA.
Independent working in a great working environment
The working environment here is open, friendly and has a flat management hierarchy. All that makes it easy for someone to integrate themselves in existing teams and earn the support they need. That motivates me, and it's fun participating, taking responsibility for my own ideas and work, and developing them.
Individual development and personal creative freedom
Biesterfeld gives me the opportunity to bring my own personality and ideas to my daily tasks and take responsibility for them. I have so much personal creative freedom in my area of responsibility and can achieve a lot independently. Biesterfeld also supports me in my personal and professional development by providing seminars and training courses.
