Ordina is the largest IT service provider in the Benelux. They pride themselves on helping customers stay ahead of changes in their business. It’s no wonder they’re on the verge of expanding into DevOps and Cloud. There’s a caveat, though. If you’re not yet known as a Cloud expert, external recruitment won’t always come easily. We knew what to do and helped Ordina in addressing their challenge:
We walked the client through our current reality as recruitment professionals. Challenges often come with particular answers. In this case, you find the answer in an innovative look at the dynamics of a Cloud/DevOps division. How? By keeping an open mind when it comes to diversity and the globalized workforce. What that looks like broadening the candidate’s profile. Ultimately, speaking Dutch is not a requirement within a team that also understands English.
Why? The Dutch market is small, and fortunately there are plenty of quality expat candidates. Soon enough, we presented Ordina with their first non-Dutch speaking candidate. In his field it’s of little importance. Fluency in programming languages is far more meaningful.
