Every employee at VITO is encouraged to develop and flourish. Gaining new skills, improving expertise or developing specific competences: every employee chooses a training programme fit for them.
VITO offers custom-made training and personal development programmes to develop new competences, specialisation and distinction. The training packages not only contain technicaltraining, but also commercial and management training, as well as team development and languages.
In 2014, 13,558 hours of training were undertaken by our employees; this figure refers to additional (formal) training. Half of the total hours invested in training by employees were spent on technical training. Moreover, VITO also offers its employees teaching moments 'on the job', covering e.g. project guidance, specific tasks, and exchange processes.
