More about AAKO as an employer

We often mention in our vacancies that AAKO is a unique company to work for. But what makes AAKO so unique? Why have half of the AAKO people worked with us for more than ten years? We are happy to tell you more about it.

We have been working with a close-knit team within the chemical sector for more than 75 years. As a family business, we know how things are going and we are more than happy to share that knowledge with each other. After all, that’s how we grow as a company. This open culture ensures that we really work as a team. Everyone is helpful to each other, whether you are an employee or part of the management team. We do not know jealousy, the doors of our work rooms in Leusden are always open and when you are in our office, you notice the commitment and drive of everyone to achieve success.

Little extras, big results
At AAKO we think about the small things, so you get half a day off on your birthday. We celebrate personal anniversaries together in the canteen with coffee and cake. There is free fruit in the office, we play a game of ping pong during lunch and from AAKO we give every employee a sports allowance. Because work is important, but “fun” at least so!

That all sounds fantastic, but we also have wishes. In this way we want to make our team even stronger. We are looking for young people with new ideas. They often ask critical questions from which we learn. This gives energy!

We have a challenge
We are aware that it is difficult to attract young people to AAKO. The labor market is under pressure, competition is fierce. We realize that we do not sell flashy products, that we sell products that are not commonplace. But we do offer the space to develop yourself as a person, young or old. At AAKO you get every opportunity to learn, so that you can ultimately make the opportunities that you see within AAKO a success independently. Of course colleagues are always ready to support you.

It is never boring at AAKO
This collegiality is especially noticeable during the travels. When Corona allows, the AAKO teams will travel together to visit fairs. Getting new assignments, generating new business together. Inspiring, but also fun. At AAKO it is never boring, that’s for sure!
