How did NewBees grow from one person to an organization with nearly 50 employees? From one location in Zaandam to nine locations throughout the Netherlands?
In “Groei (Growth)”, a podcast by the Oranje Fonds and BNR, Annemiek Dresen, founder of NewBees, talks about the development of NewBees. How we started by matching newcomers to local organizations and now also offer integration and participation programs to municipalities where language and work are combined. And we now also advise the Dutch business community on setting up and maintaining an inclusive workplace.
In the podcast, Annemiek talks about our challenges, the team, and about NewBees’ ambitions: systemic change and European expansion. Annemiek also talks about the work of NewBees and the impact we make. And about the importance and benefits of diversity in the workplace.
“It is not easy to build a diverse workplace. It sometimes causes friction. But friction creates shine.”
