To borrow from Randstad, “retaining good staff is the new recruitment,” a statement we very much agree with. We believe that keeping the people you already have deserves as much attention spent on it – or even more – as attracting new talent. After all, your competitors are looking for your best people.

PROOF Deep Listening Sessions are an effective way to help clients gather the knowledge and insights they need to move forward on employee retention. As part of the process, we analyse the findings, structure and share them with Communications, Marketing, HR and the C-suite, and include appropriate recommendations on steps we can take together to develop an impactful employee re-boarding strategy.

Would you like to know more about making a great start on alignment and sustainable value creation? Join us at the Veemarkt and we’ll be happy to tell you more.

Best wishes from everyone at PROOF,

WORK Some highlights
Eneco: Heel Eneco schakelt om
In 2018, Eneco launched its new brand promise, ‘Heel Nederland schakelt om’ (‘The whole of the Netherlands makes the switch’), reflecting its efforts to make sustainable energy accessible to everyone. Find out how PROOF helped Eneco engage employees to deliver on this promise through the concept ‘The whole of Eneco makes the switch.’
AVL: #nietzonderjullie
To attract, engage and retain the right talent, PROOF and the AVL developed the employer branding concept #nietzonderjullie (#notwithoutyou). After deploying this successfully to attract oncology nurses, PROOF helped the AVL roll it out to attract anaesthetists, surgery assistants and recovery nurses. Here’s how.
Ordina: Stay Ahead of change
Ordina – the Benelux’s largest independent IT service provider – wants to help its customers get a head start on challenges and changes. That requires talents with the right skills and attitudes. That’s why PROOF developed an employer branding concept, ‘Stay Ahead of change’ that not only attracts these talents, but motivates existing employees. Take a look.
