HR Event - Going for Gold

Picture Hr Event Workshops

On Tuesday the 22nd of November HR employees from all over the Netherlands gathered together at the Olympic Stadium for the annual HR event organized by Undutchables.

This years location tied in perfectly with our sports theme: Going for Gold. Our keynote speaker Geert- Jan Waasdorp speech about Winning (or losing) the Best Talent in the World was a real eye opener for the audience. His top 10 recruitment tools for 2017 certainly gave the audience enough to think about. During the short break that followed Geert-Jan’s speech everyone had a chance to talk about what they had just learned and share ideas and experience from their own HR department. The catering was in charge of providing the guest with healthy snacks and they managed to do just that with fruit, vegetables& dip and fresh fruit juices. After a short break everyone went to their workshop of choice. The three workshops were all centered around our theme of Going for Gold.

There was a workshop on Competing Across Borders by EF Corporate Solutions during which the speaker Ingrid Giesen discussed how cultural and communication barriers affect business. During this workshop a very interesting discussion arose on corporate cultural differences within countries where you wouldn’t necessarily expect there to be, such as Finland and Sweden. The workshop by Gyuri Vergouw focused on Creating a Winning Mentality in your team. Gyuri discussed whether mental and psychological coaching helps individuals fulfill their full potential. After which his group went outside to take penalties on the Olympic field. In another area in the stadium

Pallas Attorneys at Law discussed Cross-border Employment: From Start to Finish. Marcel de Vries and Michelle Maaijen explained the different law aspects of hiring (international) employees from start to finish. Their workshop eventually ended with a quiz which everyone enjoyed very much.Once the workshops had come to an end, there was time for a drink (or two) and the waiters walked around with trays of vegetable soup and mini hamburgers for those who were hungry. As we wanted to give our guests something to remember our event by we gave everyone who attended a water bottle with the message Going for Gold on it. All in all the event was a great success and the entire Undutchables team would like to thank our speakers and all those who attended. We look forward to next year’s event!
