VORtech is divided into teams of five or six people. Each team is led by a team leader, who must ensure that team members are in the right place and can develop to the maximum. The team leader stimulates development implicitly by being a role model and explicitly through development discussions. In addition, the team leader is the first point of contact in case of problems.
A number of aspects are considered in the team division. We make sure that members of a team work as much as possible on different projects and for different clients. This provides a broad perspective on the outside world within the team. The teams are therefore emphatically not market- or business-oriented. We do look for people who are a good match to each other and who have a good click with the team leader.
Teams normally have short weekly meetings to discuss ongoing developments within the company and within the workplace. They also organize social team activities.
Because projects are usually done by people from multiple teams, there is a natural link between the teams. Further coordination takes place between the various teams in the planning meeting and the team leader meeting.
The board of VORtech is formed by the partners. These are senior employees who are shareholders and have the skills and interest to participate actively in the governance and health of the company. They make all important decisions about strategy and policy and other matters that touch the heart of the organization. These decisions are taken in the partner consultation, which in principle takes place four times a year. The day-to-day management of the partner consultation is formed by the three-member Management Team (MT) that meets monthly.
Partners have broad powers in making offers and entering into obligations.
In addition, most partners also have their own portfolio, such as finance, quality or knowledge. VORtech therefore has no separate staff, apart from matters such as administration, management support and system administration. All responsibility is borne by people who also do executive work. This also ensures that the board of VORtech has a natural link with our customers. Because many partners are also team leaders, there is also a natural link with the interests of colleagues.
