At the heart of any thriving industry lies its people, and aviation is no exception. In the competitive landscape of today’s aviation industry, the quest for talent has become more critical than ever. The success of an aviation company is therefore dependent on its ability to transform itself, attract, nurture, and retain talented individuals. STRADE has recognized this from inception and makes intense efforts to build a modern workplace and culture that not only attracts top talent but also promotes their professional and personal development.
Recruitment in the aviation industry is not just about filling positions; it’s about finding individuals who can contribute to the sustainable and safe growth and innovation of the sector. STRADE places a high emphasis on recruiting the right talent through a rigorous selection process that ensures qualified and forward-thinking individuals become part of the team. “We do this in all corners of our company” indicates Jelena Rakic, HR Manager.
“Whether we speak about recruitments for our new Amsterdam warehouse or in growing departments such as procurement, we always take time to select the candidates that will not just bring skills and competencies but most importantly have the right attitude in line with our values.”
Once onboard, STRADE goes the extra mile to foster the professional development of its employees. From online training using the award-winning Udemy platform to individual on the job training, STRADE company invests in its people, providing the tools and knowledge necessary to excel in their roles. This commitment not only enhances the skills of the workforce but also ensures a continuous influx of fresh perspectives and new ideas, vital for the growth of the company.
However, STRADE’s commitment doesn’t stop at professional growth: the company places equal importance on the personal development of its employees.
“We want our employees to feel that we appreciate them as individual people with personal dreams and aspirations. That is why we opened the Udemy platform for their unlimited personal use and encourage them to explore personal interests in our projects.”
This has been visible in STRADE’s asset management and business intelligence team that has been at the forefront of new digital applications in the company.
Finally, STRADE fully absorbs the idea that creating a great workplace is central to the notion of employee engagement. Next to benefits such as transparent compensation schemes, favorable insurance, flexible working hours and working location, STRADE is trying out new initiatives around collaboration, wellbeing and team building. HR Connect, a new easy way to exchange with the HR department, mindfulness at work sessions, healthy cooking competitions have all become part of a program designed to reduce stress, enhance focus, and promote an overall positive mindset in the company. These initiatives not only contribute to a positive work environment but also enhance the sense of togetherness of the team which is in multiple places around the globe.
