Interview with an international client: Jan-Kees W. at C&A
How did you hear about HRbuilders?
I got to know HRbuilders through C&A, where we have been using HRbuilders as the preferred supplier for interim HR talent. We currently have three HR talents from HRbuilders working for us, among which both HR generalists and HR specialists.
Why did you decide to call upon HRbuilders?
HRbuilders has proven to be very responsive when it comes to solving urgent needs in our fast changing environment. A rapidly changing business strategy requires an agile HR team. In this environment, we need to rely on sourcing partners that understand our challenges, have a big network and therefore have the ability to quickly respond when we need additional resources. HRbuilders is that reliable sourcing partner.
Could you explain why working with an Interim Manager is the right choice for C&A in the current context?
We need to be able to scale up (and down) depending on our business challenges, therefore we always work with a flexible team in addition to our internal team. Secondly, using interim managers is a very effective way of introducing new approaches, knowledge and experience to our team. Therefore, we always try to guarantee a knowledge transfer between the flexible interim team and our own internal team.
What has your experience been like working with HRbuilders and the HRbuilders consultants?
The team at HRbuilders is very approachable, they really make an effort to understand our business and are therefore able to provide us with the right level and quality of candidates. They are an extension of our own team.
Do you see any differences when comparing HRbuilders to other agencies? If so, what are they?
For one, they focus on HR talent, where they have a solid network of HR people in different roles and levels. They are also a true international partner, able to solve your staffing needs whether in Brussels, Düsseldorf or Amsterdam. And lastly, because they really want to get to know your business, they are able to help you find the right candidate for the role. We will certainly continue working with them in the future!
