Working is fun and it may even be your passion. But, at certain times, relaxing and taking a holiday is just as important. Everyone receives 36 days holiday. Do you need less or more days? No problem, you can buy or sell days.
Staying up to date is important. What we mean by this, foremost, is that you remain up to date on the latest developments in our profession. With a personal development budget of € 3.000,- per year, you have all the room and resources you need to keep up. The budget allows you to undergo training, attend seminars and purchase books. And you can choose for yourself whether to attend courses during the daytime or in the evening.
Your health is ultimately your own responsibility but we like to encourage you to live healthy. If, unfortunately, you get sick, we continue to pay your salary. Why should your first sick day be at the expense of your holiday allowance? At Sioux, we don’t believe in these absurd little rules.
If you would like to customize your own work station, we offer an ergo-budget with which you can purchase your ideal keyboard, for example. Or a mouse that feels better to use.
Everyone at Sioux is crazy about new developments and knowledge. Employees make good use of the option to purchase hardware and/or software and explore their possibilities at home. Do you find it more enjoyable to do this with colleagues? Then you can also – yes, we believe in also – make use of the office in the evening, together with colleagues. Sioux will sponsor the purchasing of products and a nice meal. This comes from the so-called pizza budget because, as you’ve probably guessed, pizza is often chosen as the food for thought on such evenings. It’s all about being busy with your profession, having fun and experimenting with latest technologies. There are no obligations, except to become better and smarter together.
Sioux also has much to offer outside working hours, such as nice outings for you, your partner and your family. These include: sporting activities, a sizzling summer party, a cozy afternoon with Sinterklaas and a lovely Christmas dinner. In addition, we regularly hold inspirational workshops built around a specific theme. These might include mind mapping, time management, creative thinking, core strengths, the enneagram of personality types and health. Not only may you participate in these workshops, but your partner and/or your (adult) children can join in as well.
One employment condition of which we hope you will never make use is the payment of a full year’s salary if something should happen to you unexpectedly. In those circumstances we will take care of your partner/family.
There are as many opinions as there are people. We realize this at Sioux and, therefore, there is no obligation for you to make use of the things we’re offering you. But why wouldn’t you? ;-) Do you have other ideas or wishes? We are always open to trying something new.
