DNA &
VALUES

The entrepreneurial mindset is at the core of our DNA. Our founders - Hugo de Koning, Bram Bosveld and Rogier Thewessen - laid the foundations for this. For each of our brands and companies. Our people always go the extra mile. We continuously challenge each other and ourselves to keep growing. That’s the key to our success. Seven core values form the basis.

  • WE DARE The beaten path? Boring. We love a challenge and dare to do it differently.
  • WE WOW We’re not a fan of mediocrity. We like to surprise and wow everyone.
  • WE DREAM We dream big, set goals and make it happen.
  • WE CARE About equal opportunities for everyone. And we treat everyone with respect.
  • WE FAIL In order to learn and improve.
  • WE PLAY Every single day. It keeps us young and makes work more fun.
  • TOGETHER Because winning is much more fun if we do it together.

Our impact

Social impact

Social impact

The Works wants to enable people to grow. All people. With 'Everybody Work', we’re increasing our social impact. By trying to increase opportunities for everyone, whatever their background. Among others, we assist young people with a chronic illness and people with a residence permit to find a job. But we also work with NLvoorElkaar to make voluntary work accessible to the young target group. Not only by supporting good causes, but especially local communities. Points for improvement? There are always a few. That's why our Diversity & Inclusion Community is constantly looking at what could be done better.

Environment

Environment

Reducing our footprint on the planet and being carbon neutral. That’s our ambition. It’s why our work process is almost 100 percent digital, our suppliers sustainable and our waste minimal. We make the greatest impact when it comes to mobility. For example, we facilitate sustainable and electric transport for employees and flex workers, encourage the use of public transport and are reducing our vehicle fleet. We also support EarthToday, a global initiative to protect and expand nature regions.

HAPPY, HEALTHY & CONNECTED PEOPLE

HAPPY, HEALTHY & CONNECTED PEOPLE

We believe that people are your most important asset. For them to perform at their best, they need to be happy, healthy and connected. We therefore invest in the vitality and well-being of the people around us. By giving our employees a sports budget, providing access to our own gym and hosting mindset training courses. Flex workers can count on an online learning platform with more than 200 e-learnings. In order to know what’s needed, we do extensive research. Several times a year.
