Growing a business, there’s no escaping the hiring game. We all want the best people for our company, and for every single person to help grow our business even further. Not necessarily expanding our revenue or size – not all jobs pay for themselves – but to achieve excellence, stay ahead or beat our rivals. … Continue reading Hiring in a growing company
As long as there’s a future, there’s going to be a future of work. And as with any “future of”, we love to make predictions about it. Predicting the future used to be something weirdo’s (insert favourite Back to the Future quote) and scientists had a Monopoly on. And way (way!) before, we used to … Continue reading The New World of Work. Is it really new?

It should be no surprise: without attracting talent, there’s no way to grow a business and stay ahead of competitors, especially if you want to go from small to big business. As we’re in … Continue reading Attracting new talent: what does Gen-Z look for?
There is a lot of discussion going on about how many days employees will or should work from the office. It is a difficult time for companies trying to establish their new normal for the near and far future of their work. We are all looking at the usual suspects to step forward; often it’s … Continue reading Is the Office a Clubhouse?
We all used to envy the digital nomads posting photos from a hammock in the prettiest places our planet has to offer. If only we had that freedom to work from a tropical island. And although this exact scenario may not be realistic for most of us. Covid has proven what we already knew: work … Continue reading Work where it works best
Last week, I watched the short Dutch graduation film by Max Baggerman “Als je later groot bent” [English: When you are a grown up]. Shot pre-corona, the film shows commuters in long, slow shots on their way to work, in a traffic jam, or in the subway.
