The Netherlands is one of the most attractive countries in the world for expats to live and work in. Among other things, this can be attributed to the great quality of life and a generous tax incentive for workers hired from abroad: the 30% ruling.

To that end, Dutch employers are in an excellent position to easily attract top talent from across the world. So why aren’t more companies hiring candidates from abroad and relocating them to the Netherlands? Largely because of the widespread belief that it’s risky and that it’s easier and less expensive to hire someone locally. This couldn’t be further from the truth! 

On April 7th at 12 pm CET, we’ll discuss some of the common concerns employers in the Netherlands have about relocating employees, how relocation actually gives companies a huge competitive advantage, and why the process is now easier and more cost-effective than ever.

The event, our first Lunch Session, will be hosted by Teddy Dimitrova, Recruitment Manager and Founder of The People & Culture Shop, and Gordon Smith, VP Sales at Localyze. 

As a follow up, there will be a second Lunch Session on the 21st of April, where the specifics of business immigration in the Netherlands will be discussed.
