Link-Up Fortnight Goes Dutch

We have news of our first international Link-Up Fortnight event!

Houtschild is based in Rijswijk - a suburb of The Hague - and their colleagues at Erasmus are located in Amsterdam [around 60 kilometres aka 35 miles away - Ed].

An exchange of staff for the day seemed a good way for the two Dutch companies to get to know each other better. Houtschild's Yvonna Baalbergen  has more...

An Eventful Day

The 26th of September was an eventful day for both of Bertram’s Dutch companies.

For the September Link-Up Houtschild hosted a tour of their offices and an in-house lunch for the five delegates from Erasmus.

Five of the Houtschild team were welcomed in Amsterdam for a tour of the Erasmus set-up and lunch in the city.

The teams were able to get an insight in the procedures used at each of the locations. As both of the businesses are quite similar, it was very inspirational to have a look behind the scenes and share work experience and ideas.
