Tip from Van Raam about the 'new normal'
The corona crisis is slowly causing everyone to get used to a different way of working. For example, companies need to look at how they can apply the 'new normal' in their company. The aim of the 'Groen is Gaon' (Green is Go) initiative is to use pictograms and posters to give everyone in the Achterhoek region (a region in the Netherlands, where Van Raam is located) something to hold on to, making it easier to get used to the new normal and have trust again. The initiative also helps to show visitors how to safely interact with each other. For example, Van Raam gives a tip about the use of your own laptops and Microsoft Teams during meetings, so that you no longer have to look at one screen with multiple people. Read in the article 'Tip from bike manufacturer Van Raam about the new normal' more about 'Groen is Gaon' and Van Raam's tip here.
