The Italian restaurant chain Autogrill employs 1,350 people in our country. Supported by the Protime tools, three payroll managers steer the personnel management in the right direction every day.
Autogrill restaurants can be found along motorways, in train stations, airports and in certain cities. The market leader in food & beverage services for travellers is present in 31 countries. 70,000 employees are responsible for the 4,000 sales points. In Belgium, the Group has 1,350 employees spread over 60 branches. About eighty percent of them are registered as workers. The Belgian head office is located in Antwerp and has about 40 employees.
The Italian company swears by clear values that are propagated worldwide. We strive for enthusiasm and passion for the work and for the quality of our products,' says Marleen Jacobs, human resources & quality manager at Autogrill Belgium. Teamwork, involvement, openness and dialogue are also important. In addition, reliability and simplicity are crucial points of attention. All these values together form the rules of the game that we apply to our daily activities.
These values help us to maintain our position as global market leader. Autogrill has its own brands, but is also an operator of many external brands. The fact that we manage to make these work on a large scale makes us unique. For example, we have been a major partner of Starbucks for more than 20 years, and in 2012 the partnership was extended to Belgium.
