Germie vigorously parries the “criticism”, cracking a few jokes and having a laugh with him before getting back to work as if nothing had happened. In the meantime, she’s already achieved what she wanted: happy faces at work. "That's what I'm all about", she says. “I also think it's important for us as a company to demonstrate our employees that we value them.”
Germie has been working for Vetipak herself for more than sixteen years. She started out in production at our facility at Landweerstraat-Zuid in Oss, and now works there as a logistics administrative officer. She has held various positions at other locations in between. As a result, she knows the company like the back of her hand... and the people too!
Pieten on Tour and a drive-through
In addition to her daily duties, Germie organizes Vetipak’s Sinterklaas and Christmas activities. She doesn’t do this alone, however. She has been ably assisted by Angélique Nooijen, Pleunie Smolders, Maartje van Haren and Nathalie Joosten this year, among others. Because Sinterklaas – played for years by CEO Arno van de Ven – could not come on site for the second year in a row, they worked hard to create an adapted program. The usual Christmas drinks party was also canceled.
