HOW WE WORK
As a research institute and service provider, sometimes conflicting goals exist. Creative solutions require freedom, while sometimes accuracy and organization are essential for the client. We at CEST try to combine both and find exactly the right solutions and answers for our partners.
In order to do a truly good job, the supportive company framework must exist. Therefore we try to be up to date at CEST, not only in terms of scientific advances, but also in terms of working culture up to date. Empowerment of every single employee is important to us. We also try to keep the organization lean and agile. Every employee should find the ideal conditions to find an optimal solution for the customer. In the same way we see things like flexible working hours and home office as a necessity to allow everyone to combine work and private life.
We also want that others look at our work. Therefore we are ISO 9001 certified and are working on having ourselves externally assessed in other areas as well. So you can be sure that the results you get are relevant.
In science, you are working on the cutting edge of technology, which is why we invest in the further training of our employees. Contacts to colleagues in the field are necessary, therefore regular participation in conferences and membership in industry organisations are tools to keep knowledge up to date – this is the only way we can answer the complex questions of our customers.
