INCLUDE

Factors such as unity and talent are critical components when building a powerful team. And it is near impossible to imagine either without inclusion. At QVARTZ, we are convinced that much more is gained by opening up than narrowing down, and we constantly aim to include more perspectives, skills, colleagues, cooperation partners – and friends. Welcome to the QVARTZ Annual 2018. We trust you will feel included.
