Event description

Description

There is a huge run for IT talent. Due to empty chairs projects are stalled and revenue lost. Guess what: The challenge will only get bigger in the upcoming years. Let’s face it: the Dutch market has dried up.

Searching in the same pool gives a headache as the Dutch IT professionals recruited are persuaded every day by other recruiters to leave. This costs a lot of time and money. International IT professionals can fill up this gap with less chance of them hopping from one company to another.

Are you thinking: But what about the language, my clients are Dutch? What about my company processes and culture? And how will my staff react?

In this session three top – notch speakers hand out the tools to transit:

First we will speak about the labour market and the forecast for upcoming years. Second we will talk about ways for you to adapt your organisational structure and processes. And third we will give in-depth insight in how to develop an international team and enhances employee engagement while staying true to your company culture.
