Philosophy: I believe the most valuable resources that organisations have need to be treated with a “roots and wings” approach. To be able to soar to great heights, these unique and skilled individuals need a sense of security, knowing where they belong and that they are supported and feel at home, but on the other hand they need freedom to be creative, to do their own thing and to excel.
