Invest in human capital
We foster a long-term relationship with our employees. For us, being a good employer means continually investing in human capital: craftsmanship, well-being and vitality. We believe that our employees make the difference when it comes to strengthening the solidarity between our customers and suppliers (growers) and our organisation. That is why we build positions around the talents of our employees. By placing responsibility low in the organisation, our employees have the freedom to take initiative themselves.
Living up to our values
We have an identifiable common direction. This direction is what we stand for; it proclaims our right to exist as a company and how we want to associate with one another. Our employees can identify with our mission and corporate values. They were, after all, involved in the identification and establishment of these values, which serve as the moral compass for the choices that are made within HZPC.
To us, sustainable HR means: results
Increasing the sustainability of HR helps us contribute to the achievement of (long-term) operating results and the continuity of our company. This implies that the mission, vision and goals of the company must be converted to corresponding HR objectives. It also asks for people who are able to steer their own contribution to match what we need as a whole as a company. Based on our business strategy, we have established six HR result areas:
- Strategic HRM
- Strategic personnel planning
- Training and personal development
- Salary and employment conditions
- Vitality and well-being
- Reporting and information
To us, sustainable HR means: responsibility
At HZPC we focus on taking individual responsibility. This calls for people who are equipped to make choices on a daily basis, based on their own knowledge and insights. There is sufficient opportunity to take initiative and responsibility within HZPC.
To us, sustainable HR means: employability
Long-term employability (maintaining earning capacity and flexibility) is central in our policy. This calls for people who are able to anticipate (future) changes throughout their career on a constant basis. This refers to changes that come into play in the environment and within HZPC.
We work towards sustainable employability in different ways. We work with, among other things, the 'House of workability'. The house symbolises the manner in which someone can be deployed during his/her career. It is based on people's own responsibility to remain employable. On the basis of this model, the employee initiates a discussion with his or her supervisor.
