Our services

What we do

Recruitment services

Leveraging digital HR tech, we specialise in the training and placement of engineering, architecture, business services and IT professionals - women who are ready and eager to enter the Dutch labour market.

Onboarding programme

Our signature Lotus Flower Programme is a gender-specific labour market integration programme implemented through our foundation (stichting). Together with our corporate partners, we provide career guidance, soft and hard skills training, and mentorships - all with the aim of supporting our job candidates back into the labour market.

Workshops & seminars

We facilitate workshops for businesses who want to contribute directly to our candidates' readiness for jobs in the Netherlands.

We also offer the opportunity to sponsor an event to showcase the good practice of your organisation.

Business case

The business case

Higher retention rates
Newcomers tend to stay with the same employer than with any other hires.
Recruitment benefit
Employers’ efforts to create an inclusive and welcoming workforce for all results in many newcomers reaching out to members of their community who might want to work for that company as well.
Better management skills
Employers are not only happy with the newcomers they've hired, they've often learned from the experience and become better managers of a diverse workforce.
Specialised industry knowledge
Our candidates bring first hand knowledge of international markets and a global outlook to teams, allowing employers to better serve the societies in which they operate.
