Our people

We celebrate talent. We encourage development.

Pon’s strong brands demand enterprising employees

Enterprising people with a passion to perform. These employees want to go big. At Pon we trust in people and give them space and responsibility to do just that. Only the best is good enough for our employees and customers.

From cars to mobility solutions. From bicycles to construction and infrastructure. From maritime to energy solutions. We are active in many industries, with a wide range of companies. Our people are technical experts with an enterprising view on things, whether in a regular or management role. We also have IT, sales, finance, HR, legal and other specialists working for us.

At Pon we have a job for everyone, irrespective of their education or background. A surprisingly wide and versatile range of roles. The way we treat each other, our customers and suppliers, is our unifying factor. Working at Pon means working with passion, confidence, re.sponsibility and joy. That makes us strong.

Everyone at Pon is Fit for work

Pon Fit represents well-being and vitality at work.

We think it matters that our employees enjoy their work and good health. This is not only important to Pon and our business continuity, but is also beneficial to our employees. Good health is indispensable.

This is why, together with Pon Fit, we strive to have healthy and fit employees who are feeling well. What we offer: sporting events, health- and workplace checks, a great collective health insurance (ONVZ) and intensive support when affected by illness. Everyone wants to stay healthy. Pon Fit helps employees doing just that. This is why we have a vitality score of more than 96%. This, of course, is a great result.

Get Fit, Be Fit, Stay Fit.

Sponsoring

Taking care of our people, our company and the world around us.

Whether we are talking about sponsorships, voluntary work or partnerships, sustainable relationships with our employees, customers and manufacturers (OEMs) matter to us. The environment and our society are equally important. This is why we support a number of social initiatives.

Our time2help program offers our employees the opportunity to work as a volunteer on company time. We have a great affinity with cycling and sponsor the Team Sunweb cycling team. We are also a NOC*NSF partner for more than 25 years now. We sponsor important cultural institutions like the Rijksmuseum, a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history, and support up and coming (sporting) talents.

Learning en development

Personal development of our employees.

We would like all our employees to have the opportunity to grow. This is why we offer different internal training programs, at the appropriate level for each employee. Each year thousands of employees take part in a course or training.

Summer and Winter Labs – These are developmental workshops with a low threshold that are organized twice a year within Pon, for all employees. These workshops like ‘Parents and Balance’, ‘From stress to enthusiasm’ or ‘Agile/Scrum training’, help to promote employees’ vitality and sustainable employability. These workshops are accessible for everyone.

Management traineeship – Twice yearly Pon selects the ‘jewels’ among Dutch students to take part in the Pon Management Traineeship program. This 20-month program develops the competences of young talent. They also get the opportunity to grow into a management role within five to seven years at Pon.

Pon Development Programs – Together with Ormit, a specialist agency in traineeships, Pon gives employees the opportunity to further develop themselves, enabling them to maximize and deploy their talents. This way they can fulfill their own and Pon’s ambitions, through their own work but also together with others. Every year we train thousands of employees this way.

Pon Mentor-Mentee Program – This leadership program offers high-potential employees the chance to learn from an experienced Managing Director or Senior Vice President. You will meet with your ‘trainer’ three times a year to really focus and work on your personal targets. You will also be offered the opportunity to build an international network within the organization.
