    Advice to Management

    It makes me very proud to work for a company that put the health and safety of its people first. Right from the beginning of COVID, the leadership team took this very seriously and quickly sent everybody home to work remotely. Since then, all resources and decisions were taken with people at the top of the priority list. Well done and thank you!
