We invest in our colleagues and in the way we treat each other. Our colleagues can count on, among other things, good terms and conditions of employment. In addition, we invest in training and development and further support is provided by a health resource centre. We of course provide support in the event of aggression and violence. When recruiting new employees, we aim for diversity in terms gender, ethnicity and age. We give talent the scope to develop within RET.
Anticipating the future
Our commitments mean that we must anticipate the future. In cooperation with Zadkine College, we have therefore started a special training course that includes a paid work placement to qualify as a maintenance technician. Although this initiative may not seem to be exceptional at first sight, it is tremendously significant when one bears in mind that 80% of all maintenance technicians will retire in the coming ten years. In addition, our new trams and metro trains require specialised maintenance. We intend to be well prepared in this respect.
