Have you ever heard of Bakker & Partners? It’s a Belgian HR consultancy firm with a personal touch, both for its clients and its candidates. It is their number one goal to bring talent to the right place through passion, integrity, effectiveness and creativity. With nearly 20 years of expertise, it’s safe to say that they’re true experts in recruitment. ‘People before profit’, that’s what they’re all about. As a HR partner that’s always looking for the right man (or woman) for the right job, in terms of skills and personality, they realize like no other that in essence, their business revolves around people and their personal talents.
They’ve even implemented that key insight in their core business strategy and their aptly chosen slogan “by your side” reflects it perfectly. Bakker & Partners supports its candidates and takes the time needed to truly get to know them. It’s their belief that helping candidates to make the right career choices, is only possible by understanding their personality, passions and competences.
Getting to know clients, is at least equally important, according to the firm. To find the perfect match, it’s absolutely essential to get the full grasp of a company’s internal organization and corporate culture.
Neither of that is possible without a superb team of passionate human resources experts. Bakker & Partners is always on the lookout for new colleagues that share their people oriented vision on recruitment. Recognizing the importance of their own talent, Bakker & Partners gives its consultants every opportunity to further develop themselves and their skills. No set of individuals –no matter their talent- can match the results of a smoothly operating team however.
Team spirit is key for them and that’s one of the main aspects of why they’ve been participating in the Hercules Trophy for two years in a row now. Pushing boundaries and the sporty touch of the Hercules Trophy only add to the benefits, according to Birgit Van Driessche, HR consultant at Bakker & Partners. Oh, and speaking of in-house talent: Eric Bakker, their CEO, even won the CxO Pétanque at the biggest Hercules Trophy of 2016!
With your help, Bakker & Partners could even win two other awards this year, for they’ve been nominated as “Best Executive Search & Selection Company” and “Best Career Transition & Recruitment Company” in the HR Excellence Awards for the sixth time already!
