Community Meetup: Compensation and Benefits

TQ Community Meetups aim to strengthen our community by bringing together like-minded people to share experiences and grow together.

This time around, we've invited David Schimmel of De Jongens van HR to talk about employee benefits. Holland is well known as a tax haven for multinationals. This session will teach you about the kind of employee benefits available in Holland and the smart way to use them. 

Come by to learn about:

  • Benchmarking salary grid - As a growing start-up company, you most definitely compare yourself to different benchmarks. In order to attract the right employees it's good to know what the market is offering. Let’s take a benchmark and see how to use it in a salary grid. 
  • Improve employee commitment - Do you want to improve employee commitment and improve your company cashflow at the same time? Benefits based on the company performance might be just the thing for you!
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) - Join the session to find out different ways to offer stock option benefits to your employees, without the actual hassle of giving out stocks/bonds.
  • Most Famous WBSO - You probably already took care of the WBSO (the most famous tax benefit for start-ups in Holland). But do you already use the benefits that it offers to your employee workforce? Let's find out!
