Working from home sucessfully: New digital processes & systems


Monday APRIL 6 2020 // 11.00 – 11.45 a.m.

Corona has rapidly changed the way employees and companies are working While remote working and video conferencing had already been a part of the daily work before, traditional meetings and collaboration used to be a major part of most offices. Suddenly now employees are forced to work entirely remotely.

With this come new additional challenges for staff and their leaders: How can working from home be organized successfully? How can processes quickly be transformed to the digital sphere?

In this webinar, Thomas Streveld from Chamber member Mercuri Urval shares input about how to efficiently work in an remote office and opens a forum to discuss members‘ experience with this new virtual working life.

Welcome to this webinar and Q&A on legal issues arising out of COVID-19, featuring Rens Goudsmit Advocaat Corporate & Commercial Litigation, IT and Privacy, TK Advocaten Notarissen and Nils van Dijkman, Partner HEUSSEN Advocaten & Notarissen 

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.

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.

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?

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

High Performance by Sound and Togetherness Webinar by Frans Davidsson, Chief of Sound, Soundtribes.


Learn how to transfer sound from something negative into something positive.


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).


Welcome to a session on how We Make Sound Work!
