HR & Recruitment in the Netherlands
When expanding a business to the Netherlands you'll need to make a few decisions in terms of staffing: decide if you can and want to relocate existing employees, and the processes required to employ foreign nationals.
Employing Foreign Nationals
The fundamental thing to comprehend when it comes to employing indigenous workers is the law in the Netherlands. Depending on your location, the employment of staff can be affected by many extraneous factors, such as longevity of service, social charges, collective agreements, qualification and experience, etc.
Yet again, plucking talent from neighbouring countries may not come without its woes. Make sure you know the legislative restrictions and allowances of such a practice. As The Netherlands is part of the EU, residents from other countries that are members of the EU can live and work in The Netherlands without work permits or visas. A Citizen from a third country will have to apply for relevant work permits and visas.
In some countries, employing a certain amount of indigenous workers is mandatory. As the Netherlands is a member of the EU it allows EU resident from other countries to work and live there. There are no specific laws about the amount of indigenous workers that must be employed in a company. It may also depend on the type of company that you wish to set up may alter these conditions.
Perhaps you need someone with talent, experience and reliability. Someone you can trust. Someone with the right understanding of your business in the Netherlands to join you. And why not. But you must consider both the cost-effectiveness of such a move, and the laws that preside over it.
