Key focus areas

1. Learning and development

Our mission is to promote and support employee development and organizational effectiveness by providing high-quality training programs and development opportunities that are aligned with the strategic needs of our company. Training sessions are designed to meet individual, group or departmental, and company needs and objectives. We strive to enhance individual learning and development as the means for creating a better workplace environment and building a stronger community. We investigate optimal channels for learning and development by offering classroom training courses and online learning and by investing equally in job-related experiential learning and learning via interactions with others. This includes promoting internal mobility, creating a feedback culture, investing in people leadership, mentoring and coaching.

2.Employee engagement

People are key to the success of our company. Barco wants its employees to feel inspired in their work environments and to come to work with energy and engagement. We therefore continuously invest in initiatives that maximize employee engagement. By embarking on the culture journey, Barco unites all employees to move towards a common goal. This adds to a motivating working atmosphere. It’s no coincidence that Barco India was certified as a ‘Great place to work’. Furthermore, a new way to measure employee engagement is being developed and will be piloted in first half of 2020.

Circularity3. Employee wellbeing

At Barco, we care about people. That’s part of our company DNA and something we want to propagate at every level and in every branch of the company. Employee health and wellbeing is a priority at all times. That is why Barco has installed a number of measures to better balance work and personal life. In 2019, we also kept investing in enhancing health and safety of our employees around the world. If things do go wrong (either on the job or outside working hours), reintegration after long-term sickness is there as a safety net.

Circularity4. Diversity & inclusion

At Barco, every employee is valued for their merits. For us, equality is not a hollow phrase and we take measures to preserve a good balance throughout the company. We strive for diverse teams throughout the organization and keep an eye on the equal pay monitor to optimize equality. A dedicated Women in Technology campaign encourages girls to pursue technical careers to ensure a better gender balance in the future.

Barco also works towards zero discrimination and harassment. Our Code of Ethics is a formal document that describes proper behavior, which all Barco employees have pledged to honor.
