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.

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.
