Every business has a story, a journey and a determination to stand out in the crowd.  Van der Laan & Co are no exception, from a small idea grew a great ambition and a journey that we hope will inspire.

INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

More than six years ago now, my partners and I embarked on what would really become a life changing journey.

Van der Laan & Co was the innovative solution from four highly driven and determined women, with a genuine passion and commitment to influence and change the decisions being made in the boardrooms of organizations across the Netherlands.

An ambition to lead the way and forge the path for diversity in leadership roles was born.

CLEAR VISION

Specializing in executive search services our vision was always clear, even in the very beginning.

We built a business that matters on a strong foundation of expertise and dedication.  But we also started to see the world changing around us and people and organizations trying to adjust.

If everyone is so busy keeping up with everyday life, how can anyone actually prepare for a sustainable tomorrow?

STRATEGIC GROWTH

We felt the need to develop, transform and express ourselves in a more worldly and authentic way. Change is essential for growth, so we spent two years concentrating our growth area on the science of people, developing a fine-tuned, know-how so we could offer so much more than just executive search.

Our business portfolio, now proudly offers services in:

  • Connecting people
  • Diversity practice
  • People validation
  • Personal development
  • Recruitment processes

We sought the knowledge and experience of industry greats to build on the foundations of Van der Laan & Co, people like Jenny Elissen, our advisory board members, our alliance partners In Touch and Chasse Search, De Denkacademie and many more, these people helped develop our business expertise and services.

WHO DO WE WORK WITH?

We partner with forward-thinking organizations who, like ourselves, are passionate to build a sustainable future by developing their people power.

We ensure our clients get the people part right by combining our experience and proven intuition with people data, HR tech, and smart processes.

It still sounds simple, but it is not: If you don’t get the people part right, nothing else matters.

You are in good hands partnering with us.

We will never forget our roots. With every placement, we celebrate and drive a sustainable future by planting a seedling tree – one for one. Read about the Van der Laan & Co tree planting project.
