Sponsorship and partners

Sponsorship policy with structural partners

BOSS paints is passionate about people and the environment. That is why we invest in society. Via a number of structural partnerships with organisations or projects that consider the same values important.

The projects we are backing this year include:

ESF project: training courses in companies

In our strategy, we want to focus on an omnichannel story. To achieve this, all our processes have been simplified in order to prepare for the introduction of an ERP system that applies across all sites and companies. Training forms a part of the core value ‘attention for people’ of BOSS paints and is primarily realised via the digital learning platform Everest. However, employees have found that digital learning is not enough in order to master the ERP system and conversation techniques. With this training file we want to meet both the needs of the organisation and those of the employees by organising a Microsoft Dynamics 365 training course and a conversation techniques training course. ESF granted a subsidy of 100,000 € for this. www.esf-vlaanderen.be

ESF project: long-term career policy

The BOSS paints mission acts as our compass for the further development of our activities and our internal organisation. But so that we can keep a finger on the pulse, we have a biannual survey carried out in the context of Great Place to Work.
From the results of this survey in 2016 we were able to deduce that growth was making our structure too hierarchical and less agile. Hence, we modified our organisational structure and made the switch from functions to roles and responsibilities.
In this ESF project we want to work on our skills policy, feedback policy, leadership and self-management, and our welcome. That way, we can ensure that 1. the roles and responsibilities within the new organisational structure are clear; 2. the feedback supports the BOSS mission and 3. the start-up for new employees runs smoothly.
An amount of € 80.000 has been granted by the ESF.
