Dutch companies and organisations looking to address their diversity objectives seriously now have an expert partner for targeted, effective employment solutions: High Quality Diversity. There are numerous talented candidates in the Netherlands with a different cultural background and many highly qualified women in the 25-35 age group, with the talent and experience to make the next step in their careers. Nevertheless, it all too often remains a challenge for HR professionals to find the female and culturally diverse employees required to meet their organisation’s diversity targets. In order to offer a concrete solution, renowned executive search agency and recruitment expert High Quality have joined forces to establish High Quality Diversity.
High Quality Diversity is a new agency for interim management and recruitment, with a unique philosophy and a unique approach. The starting point is the conviction that cultural and gender diversity are key ingredients for a company’s social sustainability. For the Netherlands to find its way out of the current financial crisis, and lay the foundation for longterm economic and social success, it is essential that we tap into the great wealth of diverse talent.
A special focus for a lasting result
Bercan Günel and Gerard Zwart are the instigators of High Quality Diversity. Bercan Günel, founder of Woman Capital, knows the issue inside out. She explains: “To address diversity issues effectively you need a special focus, as well as a large network of suitable professionals. We’ve been working on that for years, and have seen the lasting results it delivers.”
Gerard Zwart (High Quality) and Bercan Günel (Woman Capital) emphasise the unique position High Quality Diversity has. Gerard Zwart: “We aim specifically to enrich our clients’ workforces. So we work exclusively with organisations that take their diversity objectives seriously.” In this way, High Quality Diversity contributes to a Dutch corporate environment that is more versatile, flexible and agile. Bercan Günel adds: “We take care of every facet. For example, we actively coach our most ambitious and talented candidates in their professional growth and in taking that next step. Because we know them through and through, we find a perfect match every time.”
High Quality Diversity is currently talking to organisations in the Netherlands with a view to effectively tackling the issues that surround employee diversity. Diversity is not a problem case, but a very concrete solution that offers numerous opportunities for the future.
