When we founded Berotec we had a clear image of what we wanted to accomplish. We wanted to created new opportunities for talented and experienced consultants, while at the same time offer clients within the industry a new and better alternative. After some introspection of our own motives to start our company, we soon realized that our driving force consisted of four words: Family, Free Time, Firm (Company), and Future. When we add these four F’s, we receive a fifth, namely Freedom. Our way of being gives us more freedom.
To acknowledge that Family comes first puts demands on the way a company is run. There needs to be sensible finances in order to ensure the family’s safety. There needs to be reasonable working conditions so the family’s social health is maintained. There needs to be flexibility, so that unforeseen family issues can receive immediate attention.
To admit that Free Time is the second most important part also puts demands on running a company. You need to plan your time. You need to be sure that the company is taken care of, even when you’re on vacation. To have free time you need to prioritize, plan and work effectively.
To note that the Firm comes third doesn’t make you uninterested. On the contrary. Being comfortable knowing that the most important things in life are taken care of increases the motivation to work. Working becomes more fun. Being focused becomes more important. It is, truly, job satisfaction.
The Future is an obvious driving force for those of us who are self-employed. We want to make sure we build our finances so that we’re secure beyond our retirement, or when we want to lessen our work hours.
With our Four F’s – Family, Free Time, Firm and Future – we not only created a business idea, we created a way of life. Our consultants, sales representatives and administrative staff are all self-employed and that means we can, with full credibility, call ourselves true consultants. We’re responsible, successful in our field, with a strong sense of motivation and a high level of competence. The fact that we’re all partners at Berotec is further evidence of our belief in sustainability and our deep commitment to our clients.
We know people enjoy meeting Berotec. Working with Berotec. And it’s fun to work for Berotec. Together, there’s no stopping our success!
