Conciliation and digitalization
The conciliation measures of Voxel Group go hand in hand with our culture and values and have their origin in our ultimate goal as a company: to create a happy business network. Thereby, we work so that this philosophy contributes positively to our closest work environment.
Along these lines, Voxel has a flexible working-hours policy so that employees can organize the workday regarding their own needs. Furthermore, in 2018, we implemented the teleworking in all departments of the company, contributing to the labour conciliation. With these initiatives, which allowed the rapid adaptation of the company to the new circumstances, Voxel wants the employees to find their balance between their personal and work life.
On the other hand, digitalization has become one of the most important elements to grow and recover the travel sector. Voxel Group, for more than 20 years, has developed eBilling, ePayments and Supply Chain solutions via baVel for travel and procurement companies and offers VAT management technology via DevoluIVA.
