As an organization, we have put in place a working framework to ensure that staff members are properly recognized and rewarded for their efforts in taking us to where we want to be as an organization.
We have already started this, following a series of in-house promotions in 2018. We are very passionate about the growth of our staff and invest in encouraging them through global trainings and competitions like the Ice cream juggling challenge worldwide.”
