For whom

In general, employees in the Netherlands have a strong position and a prominent position is fulfilled by the employee participation body, the works council (OR) or staff representative body (Pvt).

As a manager in an international company based in the Netherlands you may be a director of your organization - and from that position you are automatically dealing with the employee participation body, the works council (OR) or staff representation (Pvt), for whom you are a discussion partner.

For whom

In general, employees in the Netherlands have a strong position and a prominent position is fulfilled by the employee participation body, the works council (OR) or staff representative body (Pvt).

As a manager in an international company based in the Netherlands you may be a director of your organization - and from that position you are automatically dealing with the employee participation body, the works council (OR) or staff representation (Pvt), for whom you are a discussion partner.

But also when you belong to middle or lower management, as a regional manager or manager of a service or department, or of a team, or when you are an HR-professional you often have dealings with the Works Council, in the Netherlands.

You must provide information requested by them to the director and prepare notes or business plans on desired changes in your organizational unit that form the basis for requests for advice from the director to the Works Council.

And you yourself could be a direct discussion partner of the Works Council on all matters that concern your organization. How do you deal with this in a contemporary way?

Content

In the Netherlands, there is much talk of the early involvement of the Works Council in decision-making or making use of employees with specific knowledge who contribute ideas and collaborate in theme or working groups on sub-themes. Or forms in which all employees are directly involved in employee participation work, such as in sociocratic companies.

How does your organization check whether one of these forms fits your company and how do you approach its introduction? What opportunities and risks do these new forms offer you as a manager - and what is your role in each of these forms?

Topics

The following questions are addressed:

  • What is my role as a manager or HR-professional vis-à-vis the Works Council and trade unions?
  • What is the basis of the Dutch Works Councils Act: how is the Works Council composed, which confidentiality requirements can be imposed and to which facilities and support is the Works Council entitled, what are the rights of consultation, information, advice and consent, and how about the legal proceedings that an OR can conduct?
  • What should I know about trade unions, the formation and content of collective agreements and social plans? What are tips for the process of interviewing or negotiating with trade unions and what are contemporary ways of dealing and cooperating with trade unions?
  • What about new forms of employee participation? What forms are there, which organizations have gained experience with it and what are their experiences? What are the pros and cons for the director, works council and employees?
  • What are the legal frameworks (WOR, CAO) and legal aspects of new forms of employee participation: what are the challenges - what should you look out for? What has to be in order for it to be a success? The preconditions; success and failure factors at introduction. Tips for orientation or what is for your organization - and a step-by-step plan for implementation.
  • What is the role of HR, the Works Council and management in utilizing the 'wisdom of the crowd', in which you encourage your team, department, organization to formulate the best ideas and solutions, but also to suggest new themes? and bottlenecks that can be tackled together.

Benefits from the Programme

After attending this workshop with a maximum of six participants you know how you can fulfill your role as a manager or HR-professional in promoting critical and constructive employee participation in the Netherlands in a way that suits you and your organization. In addition, you go home with solutions for the cases you brought in during the workshop so that you can achieve concrete results.

This workshop is part of the new HRM College learning path ‘Dutch Labour law & HR for contemporary management’ for non-Dutch speaking managers and HR professionals working in an international company based in the Netherlands.

What is so different about Dutch employment law?

Are you an HR-professional or a manager, working for an international company (also) based in the Netherlands? Then these workshops are for you.

The workshops are the open enrolment version of a one day workshop attended by employees of multinational companies operating in the Netherlands, such as Motorola, Applied Materials, Sony, KLM, Shell and Aramco Overseas company. For tailor made or intensification of this subject, you can choose the deep dive course Dutch Labour Law and HR.

Before and during the course participants may send in or bring up current or closed practical cases for discussion purposes. During the course, reference will be made to best practices of relevant other (multinational) companies.
