Monday morning coffee in Teams

TEK has a work culture based on open dialogue. A Workshop based approach is typical for us as a way we help each other develop. As a work community, we come together to decide our best work methods and principles. The whole group meets once a week in on Monday mornings for coffee – in at the office or remotely. During these events, presentations are given from internal or external experts, current issues are reviewed quarterly, activities will be developed or news is exchanged.

Staff Development

In our type of organization, much of the learning is work-oriented; new things are learned from co-workers, members, networks and working in everyday life. We support the development of competence and we train diligently both as a team and in personal coaching and training. We have models, platforms and partnerships for systematic skills development that ensures TEK has all the necessary expertise for now and for the future.

"TEK has a lot of great people and there is an responsive atmosphere. We are flexible. I think working in a union is ethically sustainable."
