The Netherlands attracts entrepreneurial companies and owners from all over the world. For many organizations, it is where they expand their business in Europe.
We are also familiar with cases when Polish companies buy Dutch companies and thus enter the Dutch market. For such an expansion, you need to be successful. Firstly, you need managers who will effectively bridge the company in Poland and the organization in the Netherlands. Secondly, you need knowledge of the local market and culture and the ability to manage employees in a new market. Additionally, often it is necessary to coordinate the recruitment through a Polish Consultant. This person will bring the Polish company’s culture closer to the Netherlands colleagues.
