What would a workday look like?
Your day at our brand new office in Rijswijk will start with a good cup of Nespresso coffee. Today you choose for a new taste, because there are some exciting things planned for today!

9:00 AM: you check your calendar and make some changes to your planning and priorities for the week and you plan a meeting with your manager because you want to discuss a project you are working on. Do you need any input from colleagues? Did you receive a reply on your information request? You see that some progress reports are up for review by the end of the month, you check your data filing and take action where necessary to make sure you make the deadline. You update some files and check the Social Compliance platform for news.

After that, you have a digital meeting with your sustainability colleagues in Shanghai and Romania concerning a global project. Because you have a helicopter view, you are able to keep track of all open actions for all parties.

Your manager asks you to post a message on the company intranet about a sustainability milestone the company has reached; you can use your own creativity!

12.30 PM: Lunchtime! You decide to take a walk outside. The sun is shining and you have a busy afternoon ahead of you.
In the afternoon you read several articles concerning changes in sustainability legislation, you post a self-written sustainability article on social media and you make a start with documentation for a certification project. You are excited, because you have done this before and are happy to do this again, but then for Xindao.

A colleague calls you with an urgent question from a customer; they need an answer and a report as soon as possible.
The end of the day, you just finish some updates you were working on and send a last email. There is another interesting day to look forward to tomorrow!
