Half of our members are directors or supervisors, so management development and support is vital for us.
Good supervisory work is the most important resource for the success of a company, and also a source of well-being at work. We advocate for sustainable business and leadership and keep up to date on topical themes and trends in leadership.
Legal counsel for the representatives of the employer
- As our member you will also be provided with legal counsel on labour law issues when you are a supervisor and represent the employer.
- See contact information for the legal counsel.
Education and training
A leader is never ready. That is why we offer our members a versatile selection of training on the latest themes of leadership.
