Arcadis: HR strategy with sustainability as a touchstone
Many companies now promise a sustainable career. But engineering firm Arcadis has really put the HR buzzword into practice with a strategy that is based on three pillars: continuous feedback, mobility and working from home. Wim Waterschoot, People Director Arcadis Belgium & Europe South: "Our people want to give their very best, and this is only possible if you, in turn take their well-being seriously."
Arcadis started as a Dutch engineering and consultancy firm, currently it employs 28,000 people in 70 different countries. In Belgium, the organisation counts 850 employees, most of whom have technical Bachelor's and Master's degrees.
Wim Waterschoot, People Director Arcadis Belgium & Europe South: "We all know that the talent we need is scarce and very much in demand. Competition from all angles as digitalization progresses. Take for example technology giant Google, who is also looking for mobility experts to identify traffic flows."
