NMBS (SNCB) is the only provider of domestic passenger transport by train in Belgium. Given the traffic jams that break record numbers every year, the train more regularly serves as an alternative to a car for commuters. In 2017, NMBS transported 230 million travelers. This is the largest increase in the number of domestic travelers in 10 years. The future of NMBS is first and foremost determined and supported by customer satisfaction.

To address these challenges, NMBS has developed a vision in which a modern HR policy and an entrepreneurial culture based on professionalism, respect, entrepreneurship and cooperation play an important role.

Together with NMBS bridgX is working on the digitization of HR.
