20-20: Celebrating Diversity

The building and construction industry is diverse in nature with multiple languages spoken on large construction sites. At Novade, we embrace the diversity of our clients. We operate in over 20 countries across Asia and Europe, and the team is made up of over 20 nationalities.

Diversity is a key attribute of our culture. We value opinions and contributions from employees with diverse backgrounds. For us, “connecting the dots”, integrating diverse ideas from various sources is a major source of innovation.​
