Highly Skilled, Productive and Multilingual Workforce

The Netherlands offers businesses a highly educated, skilled and flexible talent pool. The Dutch higher education system graduates a steady stream of quality candidates with the skills and attitudes to meet today’s business demands. Plus, 90% of the Dutch population is fluent in English—the primary business language in the Netherlands—and a higher percentage speaks German and French than their counterparts elsewhere.

A model of efficiency and dedication, the Dutch workforce sets the pace for European productivity in a wide range of capabilities—from entry level to senior executive. Very little time is lost to labour disputes or labour relations compared with Europe as a whole and the cost of labour is highly competitive.
