HeadFirst Group makes move to new headquarters in Hoofddorp. In this way we offer (new) colleagues and relations a special and optimal location to work and meet. The colorful building at Park 20|20 will be furnished to the latest standards for hybrid working and feature a unique experience center for events.

According to Han Kolff, CEO HeadFirst Group, the former ANWB building at Taurusavenue 18 in Hoofddorp is a great starting point for the team to further realize the organization’s ambitions. “After making great memories and experiencing tremendous growth at our current locations, we are moving to new premises. At this central, easily accessible location we will continue to build to become Europe’s largest labor market platform and talent solutions provider in the professional segment.”

New standard: working hybride
Since 2020, we have been thinking differently about hybrid work. For knowledge sharing, (team) consultations, induction of new colleagues, team work and personal meetings with colleagues and relations, we prefer to go to the office. For work that involves individual work and 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 layout, we put our core values of ‘Customer first’, ‘Learn every day’ and ‘Connecting people’ at the center. We believe it is 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 is not going 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 formidable competitor for the home office.

The building is completely energy-neutral, which is perfectly in line with how HeadFirst Group wants to contribute to a better world of tomorrow. Its location allows for the best use of the sun’s power. There is enough daylight at any time of the day, which is stimulating for HeadFirst Group employees. In addition, the location acts as a sustainable business card that introduces relations to HeadFirst Group and its services in a special way.

Experience centre
The building has a real eye catcher: the large, round theater. The high-tech interior with the semicircular projection screen is one of the largest in the world. “Besides use by employees of HeadFirst Group, it will be used in particular to receive external relations, such as zp’ers, partners and clients. With the possibility to work, meet and organize events. It promises to be a unique ecosystem of entrepreneurship,” Kolff concludes.
