People

Every organization is only as successful as the people who work there. This also applies to de Bijenkorf. Our People Partners understand better than anyone how important it is to find the right people for the job; people who are just as ambitious as de Bijenkorf and who want to make something special out of it. They are there to attract these people, to help them with their development and to move them to the right places.

Together, this department covers the entire process of recruitment, employer branding, talent development, working conditions and personnel administration for our entire organization.

We strive to fill 70% of our vacancies internally. Because we believe that everyone's talent comes into its own when we make the best use of the qualities of our people.
