About IT

The mission of our IT team is to build world-class IT systems, while efficiently supporting the everyday needs of our employees. To do so, our IT employees develop technology strategies in line with the business and source the best technology suiting those strategies.

To fulfill their mission, our IT department is organized around Global Competency Centers: teams with expertise on a system or an IT key topic gathered in one or several locations.
