My Manager
My Manager
Brainlab’s Executive Chairman runs a management mentoring scheme, transferring his extensive business and management experience to individual managers within the company, ensuring that a high standard is kept from top to bottom.
Brainlabs in-house chef prepares breakfast and lunch for the company. This ensures that not only are employees eating healthily, relieving them from both paying for it and having to consider their diet, it also creates a sense of community, encouraging people to get away from their desks and have a break to engage with others.
