NRC’s Best Employers Survey is a scientific survey into good employment qualities for highly educated workers. The category ‘New Heroes’ was introduced last year, for small companies that employ over 15 people.
The survey looks at issues such as employment conditions and the learning climate. New Heroes concentrates on topics such as training opportunities and personal development. It also looks at the extent to which innovation is a focus area for the company concerned. Expand Online has proven, with this ranking, that it combines a great package of employment conditions with a pleasant working atmosphere.
Tim van Vliet (Expand Online) explains: ‘We are a young organisation in a sector that is rapidly changing. The employees concerned, who have the appropriate expertise which allows us to continue to lead the field, are very important to us. That is why we work on the basis of small, self-governing teams, provide the space for ambition and yet, simultaneously, also incorporate a ‘family’ feeling. It is fantastic to see that we have done really well on these points in the Best Employers Survey.’
The NRC Best Employers Survey has been around for ten years and is organised in collaboration with SatisAction. A full overview of the results can be found here (in Dutch).
