We create opportunities for Employees
When she joined Straumann from school as an apprentice, Carmen Brumann hardly expected to enter a world of opportunities. But together with her colleagues we have helped her create and realize several. Eager to improve her skills and prospects she embarked on a three-year business school course in general management alongside her full-time job. Recognizing her commitment and hard work, the company supported and sponsored her and she graduated with a top grade. Having started work immediately after leaving school, she wanted to take six months out to for a world tour and we were pleased to continue her employment when she returned. In 2014, she went on an international assignment to Straumann UK and took on a higher responsibility when she returned to Basel. In 2016, she made a significant contribution to establishing our new European Finance Center and as the year came to a close, she was on a special assignment in Spain. Carmen is a true ‘player / learner’ and a ‘down-to-earth’ example of the high-performance culture Straumann is adopting – which explains why she was distinguished by her colleagues as the best exponent of our core behaviors in 2016.
