New Head Quarter HeadFirst Group in Hoofddorp
HeadFirst Group has decided to relocate to a new head quarter in Hoofddorp. The organisation offers (new) colleagues and relations a special and optimal location to work and meet. The colourful building on Park 20|20 will be decorated according to the latest standards for hybrid working and features a unique experience centre for events.
According to Han Kolff, CEO HeadFirst Group, the former ANWB building at Taurusavenue 18 in Hoofddorp is a wonderful starting point for the team to further realise the organisation’s ambitions. “After great memories and tremendous growth at our current locations, we are moving to a new building. At this central, easily accessible location, we will continue to build in order to become Europe’s largest labour market platform and provider of talent solutions in the professional segment.”
New standard: hybrid working
Since 2020, we have been thinking differently about hybrid working. We prefer to go to the office for knowledge sharing, (team) meetings, training new colleagues, working in a team and personal meetings with colleagues and relations. For individual work that requires concentration, we prefer to work from home. The new location will provide excellent facilities for both, for example by equipping meeting rooms with the latest technology for remote meetings.
Kolff: “In the design we focus on our core values ‘Customer first’, ‘Learn every day’ and ‘Connecting people’. We find it important to offer everyone an inspiring workplace, where connection is key. At the same time, we want to facilitate colleagues in an optimal work-life balance, with flexibility and autonomy. HeadFirst Group will no longer go back to a 5-day work week at the office.” Additional advantages are the facilities such as responsible food, excellent coffee and the possibility to exercise. According to Kolff, this makes the location a worthy competitor for the home office.
The building is fully energy-neutral and therefore fits perfectly with how HeadFirst Group wants to contribute to a better world tomorrow. The location ensures optimal use of the power of the sun. There is enough daylight at every moment of the day, which is stimulating for the employees of HeadFirst Group. The location also functions as a sustainable business card that introduces relations to HeadFirst Group and its services in a special way.
The building has a real eye catcher: the large, round theatre. The high-tech interior with the semicircular projection screen is one of the largest in the world. “Besides the use by employees of HeadFirst Group, it will mainly be used to receive external relations, such as freelancers, partners and clients. With the possibility to work, meet and organise events. It promises to become a unique ecosystem of entrepreneurship”, concludes Kolff
