In cooperation with the national "Top team High Tech Systems & Materials" Xelvin organizes an International Knowledge Workers Day at Philips Drachten on Tuesday January 21 2014. This meeting between knowledge workers, Industry/Institues and Policy is part of the Dutch Human Capital Agenda which intends to further improve the attractiveness of the Netherlands in the growing global marketing of young, highly skilled international knowledge workers.
- Foreign knowledge workers ("technical expats", master-level and upwards) of companies located in the Northern part of the Netherlands and foreign technical students;
- Their CEO's and HRM managers;
- Companies without knowledge workers, that want to get informed about working with foreign knowledge workers.
Participation is not restricted to High Tech Systems & Materials companies. Other companies (Energy, Life Sciences, Agrofood, Water, etc) are also more than welcome.
Leading questions during the International Knowledge Workers Day
