Peer-to-peer training


At VeroTech, continuous training and development is a very important element in the career path of our engineers. New consultants benefit a great deal from the experience and knowledge of those who have been inside the business for a while. Without any doubt, peers can be an excellent resource for support and company or project related knowledge.

To show that age difference certainly is no barrier for knowledge transfer, the above picture features our youngest Junior Consultant (25 years old) in a learning moment with our most Senior Consultant (64 years old). Or where youth and experience find each other :-). We are proud of our community where consultants are open to sharing their know-how in the interest of our customers.


Celebrating summer with a BBQ


Last week, we all gathered for our one and only Summer BBQ. Cloudy sky and a rainy evening? We couldn't care less. For every problem there's a solution and when our consultants meet, it means FUN, rain or sunshine.... It was the perfect time to catch up with each other, have a laugh and raise a drink to cheer VeroTech and our vivid community. A great way to start the summer!


Our learning & development program in action


VeroTech consultants take the course of their career in own hands by grabbing each opportunity to learn and develop on the way. Yesterday's training, fostering best-practice and experience-sharing in project management, will enable them to put their newly acquired PM skills to use across their projects and assignments. Both a win-win for our consultants and our customers :-).

The Experience game @ Brussels


It was all about finding our inner Cherlock Holmes ...

Participating in a life escape game and solving a unique mystery was the challenge. With 19 consultants we were locked in 4 experience rooms, playing the part of famous detectives while the clock was ticking. Some of us used their math skills, others focused on the rebuses and yet others cheered and encouraged the team. In the end we all found our escape and had a nice Italian dinner to celebrate our victory.

Our New Year Dinner Party was a true success!

Saturday February 6th, 2016

In accordance with tradition, we started the month of February with our yearly 'New Year Dinner Party'. Expectations grew in the weeks prior to the party night, as our consultants tried to figure out this year's theme. And expectations were met at the night itself with a very nice dinner and a fantastic acoustic band and DJ bringing some groove into the night.

In line with the 'diamonds' theme and under the supervision of four diamond merchants, we all became connoisseurs, learning to evaluate real diamonds on color, cut, clarity and carat. This will definitely pay off at our next visit to the jewelry store :-).

To summarise: it was a very entertaining night where we could all catch up and feel part of a vibrant and growing VeroTech community!

SUMMARY TECHNOLOGY SEMINAR: 'ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN MECHATRONICS: ENABLER OR JUST ANOTHER COST FUNCTION?' - 3 February 2015


Our lives are more and more influenced by technology and many applications have the potential to be more energy-efficient. Yet, innovation is not always driven by energy-efficient design.  How can mechatronics contribute?

Energy savings are a drive for innovation but are these costs a major or minor point in developing new technologies? Several experts focused on this question during a technology seminar in cooperation with Leuven.Inc - Leuven Innovation Networking Circle - on Tuesday February 3rd, 2015.

VeroTech is Trends Gazelle Starter Vlaams Brabant 2014!

In the competitive world of engineering, a fierce war is being waged for competent employees. At VeroTech we are making the difference by investing heavily in our consultants. The weekly magazine Trends rewarded this approach by presenting us the ‘Starter of the Year’ award for Flemish Brabant.

The ‘Starter of the Year’ award is presented to companies that were founded less than three years ago. They need to be in good financial health, sustainable, innovative and have the potential to grow. VeroTech ticks all the right boxes.

"Growth"

VeroTech employs mechanical, electronic, software and mechatronic engineers, creating high technology products.

“Today VeroTech employs 33 engineers”, says Managing Director and founder Veronique Van de Kerckhove, “but we’re aiming to grow to about 50 in this year. In the long term, we want to evolve to 100 consultants.”

“We want to have a strong and competent team of engineers for all four of our areas of expertise. To assure this, we organise team events and trainings on project and time management on top of the standard fringe benefits. We implore our employees to take initiative in everything from their day-to-day job to team building activities.”

“We aim to be a partner”

The values of VeroTech are the foundation of how we operate: vision, excellence, responsibility and openness.

“We aim to be a partner for our customers. By carefully selecting the engineers with the right skills and personality. By finding the best solution and going beyond our limits to realise that solution. By being open with our clients and taking responsibility for what we do”, Van de Kerckhove explains.

Equally important are our employees. “We want to boost the image of the profession. There’s a shortage of engineers - and an even more apparent shortage of female engineers - which I don’t expect to diminish any time soon.”

VeroTech New Years Event 2014

February 8th 2014
All the consultants and staff of VeroTech were invited with their partners at the Pastoriehof in Meise to celebrate the New Year. We started the evening with a drink and some appetizers and took the time to catch up with each other and get to know the new colleagues.

During her speech, Veronique, our Managing Director, looked back on 2013: “It was a dynamic year, in which we worked hard, but also grew a lot. During the year, we welcomed 14 new consultants! We are very proud of this evolution and we have the ambition to continue this growth path in 2014!”
We enjoyed a workshop, in which we had to draw caricatures of our neighbor. This led to hilarious situations and brought up the most creative skills of all of us. During a delicious meal, Maggy, our teacher for the night, made some beautiful caricatures of all of us!
It was a great evening, a nice start of 2014. We wish you, your family and your beloved ones all the best for this new year! Let’s work on it together!

The audience listening carefully to the experts.

SUMMARY TECHNOLOGY SEMINAR “Embedded Connectivity for the Internet of Things: the necessity of IPv6? - 19th November 2013

Just imagine… a world full of connected devices. Control your fridge with your smartphone, send an email to your dishwasher, control your electric lighting from your office, using your laptop, … . Every device, appliance, switch, … connected and addressable by means of the internet: “the internet of things”! Since a number of years, technological companies are talking about it, but are we there yet ? Is IPv6 (the IP protocol with an extended range of addresses) being rolled-out as we speak ? What are the technical and technological hurdles we need to overcome and even more, how and with whom can we tackle these problems…?

An answer to each of these questions and some extra insights in IPv6 and embedded connectivity is what VeroTech and DSP Valley offered during this technological seminar on Tuesday November 19th, 2013. This was the place to be when you want to know all about IPv6…
