What we do

NewBees prepares newcomers, refugees, for a job: at a place in our society. Because we believe in an inclusive society. A society where equality is key. And where everyone gets the chance to use talent, wherever you come from.

After visiting the refugee camps on Lesbos in 2015, we started NewBees in 2016. With the aim of preparing newbies for a place in our society through traineeships. We now use our expertise for:

1. Newbies

Through traineeships and participation programs by which they orient themselves on the Dutch life and labor market.

2. Municipalities

In addition to advice on inclusive leadership and policy, NewBees offers (dual) integration and participation programs to municipalities

3. Companies

NewBees INC. advises and guides employers in building a safe and inclusive workplace.

"Newbie is slang for a beginner, a newcomer, or someone inexperienced in a profession or activity. We have all have been new somewhere."
