Catherine Bölger, 's Heeren Loo
Ramon de Groot, 's Heeren Loo
Catherine has been with 's Heeren Loo for over five years, initially serving as the recruitment manager and now as the HR manager. In this role, she is responsible for HR service delivery in various regions and oversees HR teams. Catherine began by leading the recruitment department towards becoming a proactive unit that operates decentrally, close to the customers, and thinks from the perspective of the job applicant rather than solely from the managers. She then transitioned to the "working from your talent" approach, the new recruitment strategy, which was implemented in July '23.
Ramon has been working in the disability care field for 20 years, holding various roles such as a social worker, change manager, and academy manager. In his position as the academy manager at 's Heeren Loo, he, along with the management team, is responsible for supporting approximately 17,000 employees in their learning and development journeys. In addition to overseeing regional academy teams and the strategic development of the academy, his specific focus is on developing new collaborations and innovations with the education sector in the Netherlands.
In the rapidly changing job market, attracting and retaining top talent is the key to success. ’s Heeren Loo recognizes this, and that's why the organization opts for an innovative, creative, and personalized approach to recruitment, development, and employee retention. The focus here is on 'working from talent,' and recruitment and learning have been transformed into a powerful synergy aimed at continuous growth, development, and internal mobility.

HR Directors in the public sector
KLM is pioneering a revolutionary way to deal with this issue by using a more data-driven approach in strategic workforce planning. In their view the coming scarcity of experienced personnel can be combatted by more efficiently matching people and skills by using AI / Data Science. Through better use of the data the company already has, KLM will be able to easier match the skills-languages of worker and employer which enables them to tackle the skills gap more efficiently, working multi-disciplinary using the build/buy/borrow methodology. And the data will even allow KLM to match specific individuals to specific jobs. Join us at this Vision Dinner on the 17th of January to listen to Annelies and Yvette’s approach to these issues. There will be ample opportunity for networking, both over dinner and afterwards, so be sure to sign up!
During this Vision Dinner, Marcel Veltrop, Executive Vice President | Head People Services at Rabobank, will give a presentation. More information will follow soon.
