Innovation means looking ahead, thinking out-of-the-box and daring to operate. Quite a challenge in a world in which (technological) developments are occurring at lightning speed. Within FME we strive to continuously improve our performance. To this end, we challenge our people to come up with proposals to innovate processes, be open to new ideas and involve colleagues in innovations. By innovating, we keep developing ourselves. This gives us the flexibility that is needed in a world that is constantly changing.

To us, entrepreneurship stands for taking initiative, seeing and exploiting opportunities. For us, entrepreneurship really means taking responsibility and showing ownership until there is a result that matters. Within FME we stimulate and recognize entrepreneurship in all roles that people perform: everyone can be entrepreneurial in his or her own way. Within all the different positions, we jointly promote a culture of initiative and pro-activity. People take the responsibility to continuously strive for an optimal fulfillment of their task.
