Protime is much more than just an organisation that aims to support companies in their workforce management and time registration. Behind each company, there are people who, each in their own way, contributed to building the company culture. Obviously, Protime is no exception to this rule.
But at Protime, we feel that there is something unique. A culture so engaging, our employees made walking the extra mile their second nature.
Birth and growth
Founded in 1995, Protime is today a European market leader in time registration and personnel planning.
Protime was founded by Peter s'Jongers and 3 companions at the young age of 25. Entrepreneurship has always been in his blood. But more than just wanting to have a growing business, co-founder and COO Peter s'Jongers was looking for that special cultural fit that made every Protimer #proud of being part of our company.
Our tools are now used in almost 40 countries. We have offices in Aartselaar (BE), Namur (BE), Paris (FR), Luxembourg (LU), Manchester (UK), Waddinxveen (NL), Frankfurt (DE). Today, our team has exceeded 300 Protimers.
"Time is valuable. You can only spend it once."
In today's world, changes come and go. This is why organizations must adapt quickly to these external and often disruptive changes. This requires a growing need for efficiency, performance and flexibility. Protime technology helps employees to manage their valuable time and to add value to their organisation.
How do we do it?
Company values are the fundamental beliefs of an organisation. These guiding principles dictate behaviour and can help Protimers understand the difference between right and wrong. Core values also help to determine if we are on the right path, fulfilling our goals. They help us to define how Protimers should behave in business.
This is what a Protimer is like:
- CUSTOMER FOCUS: WE search the solution, not the procedure
- COLLABORATION: WE bundle our talents to get things done
- CAMARADERIE: WE share a spirit of trust, respect and friendship
- GROWTH: WE pursue growth and learning
Make Time Valuable
Corporate Social Responsability embedded in our culture
Time is precious, you can only spend it once. If we want to get the most out of the available time, we have to aim at being the worlds best employer for every Protimer!
We make a conscious shift from being a ‘great place to work’ towards being the best employer for each Protimer. The ambition is almost the same, but we choose a more internally defined goal. We don’t want to be the best to win games or win a contest, we want to create the best possible version of our workplace in all its facets. We want to have a meaningful impact on every Protimer, the society we operate in and the environment we live in.
If you ask a Protimer why he or she loves to work for us, many of the arguments concern their own team! And we totally get this!
Team culture is a major driver for engagement. This is why a culture ambassador in every team will safeguard and nurture team culture.
This ambassador is the right hand of the teamleader when it comes to group values and behavior. They live and breath culture. He or she is an important contact for colleagues if they want to talk about team health or wellbeing.
“They use the values as a guide and focus on valuable connections between team members.”
Our ambassadors guarantee our company culture stays strong by focussing on it throughout the year. Driven by the dream of being the best workplace on the planet, we believe that every Protimer can promote that culture. They are convinced that acting consistently in accordance with our culture, based on clear values and exemplary behavior, makes us stronger as a company, as an employee and above all as a human being.
