HOW WE DO IT
In an environment focused on innovation and development, where major changes may take place throughout a project, with a high degree of uncertainty, and a finite timeframe and budget, success only comes through working as a competent, motivated and cohesive team.
The growth of our ENGINEERING LAB department is unarguably due to the professionalism of our team. This is why our management team’s primary goal is the growth of the team based on the following concepts:
Only a highly qualified team can successfully tackle the riskiest projects. Therefore, we cannot claim to be a leader in the industry without relying on a team who have received the best available training. To help achieve this, in the last few months our department has received training in foreign languages (English and German), operations management, electronic programming, pneumatic development, simulation (structural and fluids), team management, and other topics.
At BETWEEN’s ENGINEERING LAB, we know that to keep a team motivated and proactive, it’s important to allow team members more freedom in terms of working hours than at standard companies. We offer a flexible work schedule to ensure our team is as focused and efficient as possible.
To attract the best talent, we regularly follow-up on our team members’ career goals with the aim of reconciling their particular professional interests, the training made available to our team, and the company’s own goals.
A specialized professional does not only need to have in-depth knowledge of his or her field, but also a clear understanding of the issues faced by his or hers colleagues in different disciplines. This is why our teams work on projects concurrently, with the primary actors assigned to the project regularly taking part in its development from the very start.
One cannot effectively manage a team of experts (who are more experienced than their manager in their respective field), without listening to their advice and delegating responsibility. This is why decisions that impact the department are always openly posed to the team in order to reach a consensus that meets the needs of each member within the department.
Regular team building activities
The feeling of belonging to a team not only stems from technical and entrepreneurial factors such as those mentioned in the previous paragraphs (though these are also important), but it’s also critical to strengthen emotional ties. In our department, these efforts center around team building activities which are held on a regular basis.
At BETWEEN ENGINEERING LAB, the team comes first.
