In an ever so digital world the analogue tools, voices and ears, are being never so important as now. How we design workplace (space) linking workplace communities (people, activities, behaviour) are vital for creating sustainable operations. Emphasis on the social togetherness in a spatial distance reality, the voices of others will be the glue that will make organisations to keep thriving. 

SoundTribes, Chief of Sound, Frans Davidsson, will with his interdisciplinary knowledge, guide us through Sound Evolution and Environmental Psychology in the Workplace. Simply, Why we react as we do and what implications it has on people and business. Noise annoyance is top of complaints in workplaces, for decades the biggest stressor in offices, still we go on  business as usual.

The drop in performance leads to enormous cost for organisations and society every day. High demands on cognitive performance require a more in-depth approach on the biggest asset- the workforce. There are good ways to approach and implement the Physical environment to support humans both Psychologically and Physiologically.


This session is for Organisational leaders (Policies and Performance), Facility Managers and Designers (Spatial Design) and HR Managers (People and Health).

The Swedish Chamber thank all of you who participated on this Webinar and Q&A on legal issues arising out of COVID-19, and a special thanks to Rens Goudsmit, Advocaat Corporate & Commercial Litigation, IT and Privacy, TK Advocaten Notarissen, Nils van Dijkman, Partner HEUSSEN Advocaten & Notarissen, Jan-Pieter van Niekerk, Director at KPMG Meijburg & Co and Jan Hollamans, Senior Tax Manager Meijburg & Co who made this Webinar possible.


Did you miss out on the Swedish Chamber legal webinar and Q & A  or would you like to see the slides again? Send an email to and we will send you the slides on how to tackle your COVID-19 Business legal challenges. 



Recent measures taken by the Dutch government to combat the Corona virus have a major impact on the daily business operations of companies and institutions. This brings a lot of challenges and legal uncertainties that require a direct approach. Our members, the law firms TK Advocaten and Notarissen and Heussen will share know-how, experiences and insights on the best approach.

Rens Goudsmit will cover contract related issues and answer questions on how to interpret the corona virus situation. Is force majeure applicable? What are the legal consequences for my contract(s)? What does the legal term ‘unforeseen circumstances’ mean and what are the consequences?

Nils van Dijkman will cover the personnel related topics and go into the “salary costs compensation” (NOW) and answer questions like when will NOW come to force, how much of the salary costs will be covered and how long will this measure last. In addition other measures to reduce personnel costs will be addressed.

Jan-Pieter van Niekerk will cover the most important and relevant tax measures in light of COVID-19. Special attention will be paid to the facilities to request for a temporary relief of payment of taxes. How does this work and which special attention points, such as a notification of the inability to pay taxes to avoid liability of the directors where possible, should be taken into account? Furthermore, Jan-Pieter will address specific interesting parts of the Salary Cost Compensation (Noodmaatregel Overbrugging Werkgelegenheid), such as the explanation and interpretation of the concepts of ‘concerns’, ‘turnover’ and the method of this calculation.

All related topics will be analysed and answered during the session on Friday.

For this meeting all participants are asked to prepare a 3 minute pitch on a Book, Training, or TEDX presentation you have read, done, seen.

It should be about something you have found interesting for work/personal effectivity/management etc., and you consider it valuable enough to share it with the group.

This way we can learn from each other and get some tips for interesting reads etc. so that we can add some items to our development wish list for the coming months.



The Mentorship Program is made possible by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Mercuri Urval sponsored by
Inter IKEA Systems and Handelsbanken.
