Schot and Bernsen believe that today’s sustainability-driven world is giving internal motivation to young people as they seek to be part of the energy transition, however, this requires new capabilities in order to develop.

“We are in the technical sector and what we see is that as our products are developing, new products are coming, so what we see on a technical side is that people have to develop new technical skills and we are constantly developing our people,” Bernsen stated.
