Own your career
- Take the lead We don’t have a blueprint for the steps you’ll take with us over the next few years. For us, learning and career development is something very individual. That’s why, when you join us, we’ll work together to align opportunities at Scoutbee with your career goals. We’ll support your learning journey with the right tools and processes to get feedback, review and expand your skills and performance, and contribute to our OKRs. The bi-annual development meetings are the icing on the cake, as this is where integration, goal setting, and review take place.
- Unlock your potential A professional coach can sometimes be the missing ingredient in unlocking great potential. A coach can help with personalized feedback, developing strategies to overcome challenges, and discovering and using your innate skills and strengths to achieve your goals and reach your full potential. We just wanted to make sure we had that ingredient too!
- Never stop learning We believe that investing in the individual development of our employees not only benefits them, but also creates a culture of innovation and creativity. That’s why we offer individual development budgets as a benefit to all of our employees. With this development budget, each individual has the opportunity to continue their education, learn new skills, attend conferences, earn certifications, and take their career to the next level.
