Our Stories

Since our launch in 2019, we have had a great time. With the necessary challenges and successes, but above all with many great projects, a growing number of employees and a lot of enthusiasm. With us, but also with our customers. We would like to see more of that.

Healthy Oxygen Day – 30/03/’22

“A healthy mind in a healthy body”. That was what it was all about during this Oxygen Day. After lunch, we listened to top sports coach Paul van den Bosch with his fascinating talk about the professional as ‘Egopreneur’. We then worked in small groups on an interesting business case and ended with a drink and delicious tapas in Mechelen. What a successful Oxygen Day once again.

Teambuilding Melkhuisje – 17/09/’21

To reward the team for their efforts in a difficult period (damn you Corona!), we organised a cosy evening at the Melkhuisje in Bonheiden. Having a nice meal together and putting our brains to work solving an escape box, that makes us happy. Doesn’t it, Sam? 😉

Evening Boattrip – 20/04/’21

How to organise a coronaproof team event? That is the question we asked ourselves, along with probably many others. As far as we are concerned, the answer is clear: a boat trip on the fantastic “Schelde”, of course! And oh, it was so good to see everyone again.

“Walk-assessments” – 04/’21

Dirk took the time to link evaluation interviews with a walk. This is not only coronaproof but also healthy and enlightening. And this thanks to, yes… a fresh dose of OXYGEN!

In the Spotlights – 04/2021

This week we put our colleagues in the spotlight for a day, literally! We organised a day of photo shoots and video shoots to give our website a personal touch. And I can assure you, besides their job at Oxygen, many of them would not be out of place in Hollywood 😉.

Breathing Oxygen – 03/2021

While my colleagues work hard for our customers, I go and get some oxygen in the mountains. A well-deserved holiday is necessary from time to time, but I won’t forget you. I’ll bring back a thermos of oxygen, that’s a promise 😉.

Celebration – 03/2021

Yes, we are shining, with good reason, because we have won a new project and that deserves to be celebrated. With coffee, because it is still early, but believe us, we are already floating enough here.

Meetings = fun – 03/2021

Nobody ever said that a meeting, in order to be productive, cannot be entertaining. Keep on smiling!

Coronaproof – 03/2021

When the colleagues arrive at the office, it seems that everyone is walking into the company with their masks on. Even the Oxygen logo turns out to be coronaproof. Doing well, aren’t we? 😉
