The HRM department
The HRM department is a small facilitating department with a focus on recruiting and managing the people who work within the company. This is carried out on a strategic, tactical and operational level. The goal? To ensure the right people are in the right place and to help employees reach their maximum potential in a safe work environment, so that the company achieves the best results. This includes responsibilities in areas such as recruitment, working conditions, answering staff questions, advising management and carrying out a range of administrative tasks.
The Finance department
This department is responsible for processing invoices, compiling financial reports and monitoring administrative processes. By processing this information, they help every other department within VB-Airsuspension to grow and improve. Not only do they deal with financial information, but they also get involved with the management of the company and help to guide VB-Airsuspension in the right direction. The department is therefore the 'navigator' of the company!
