Our pillars

External Training

Sharing the knowledge and expertise that we have can become another business activity. One that we believe would be of added value to our clients. With this we endeavour to improve the relations with our customers by supporting them with accessible trainings and workshops. We believe our added value specifically lies with making things practical. We distinguish ourselves from other training providers by offering trainings and workshop that are easy to understand no matter the knowledge level combined with a practical approach: it has to be easy to use in daily practice.

Control Union Academy creates the global format of the material and the quality standard. We contribute by creating the standard training material, templates and processes to ensure that all our offices can provide their own trainings in a uniform way, making sure that the clients get a quality training and thus value for money.

Research and Publications

The data and knowledge itself will also serve as an added value to our existing and potential clients. There are three main activities in the scope of using and sharing this data and knowledge:

  • Publications

Use our market and sector data and knowledge to publish interesting articles for existing and potential clients. This increases our exposure and needs to be done in a well-founded way to raise our reputation as experts in the particular field we publish about.

  • Research projects

Execute research projects for clients in collaboration with universities and/or field experts. We believe executing research projects for clients in collaboration with students will contribute to our talent pool by working together with talented students.


Within our group of companies, initiatives and developments are part of our daily business, driven by local knowledge and experience. With the use of the platform of Control Union Academy we want to raise the quality and enlarge the diversity of these initiatives and developments and speed up lead time These initiatives and  developments have an internal or external character. Such as Internal development projects, depending on the common needs, such as Peterson and Control Union Global Sustainability Policy, Marketing campaign, Tool developments.
