The Axis Alternatives experience

At Axis Alternatives, we firmly believe in the benefits of a close-knit firm.

As each employee’s degree of integration affects the team spirit that is so essential to the success of our work, we regularly bring our employees together during work meetings and seminars, and on a more informal basis.

We know how important it us to provide an enjoyable work atmosphere, so we organise two annual evening events as well as football tournaments, poker games and impromptu after-work get-togethers throughout the year.

We also feel strongly about contributing to society and regularly take part in meal distributions with the Salvation Army.

    Together, the Assignment Managers, Coaches and HR teams provide personalised supervision of employees and help to create a stimulating environment that enables employees to develop their skills and benefit from high quality working conditions. This approach is subject to a regular “well-being at work” survey.
