People & Culture Projects
HR expertise and innovation
We help you to create an irresistible organization and build high-performing teams.
Do you have a big project ahead of you, but lack capacity or expertise in your current people team? Our innovative approach brings expert knowledge, years of experience, and a fresh perspective to your organization. We start with your goals and vision, analyze your people priorities, and then deliver game-changing practical solutions.
People & Culture Roadmap
Your people game plan! Based on your current status, ambitions, and budget: Short, medium and longer-term priorities, clearly defined in a project plan with timelines. Some call it a People Strategy, but then the actionable format.
People & Culture Foundation
All the basics you need to offer employees a reason to work with you. The foundation means you can attract, retain, reward, and engage people. It includes setting up all the basics (contracts and tooling), your people processes, and providing expert knowledge.
Compensation and Benefits
We help you create your compensation philosophy, with a solid salary framework and a fitting benefits package. We can benchmark your salaries, set up your levelling structure, and train managers on how to use this in hiring and promoting.
Ambition, Mission & Values
Get to a point where your story is compelling, the mission is clear and the values are understood and embraced by the organization. We also help to identify the behaviours that go with those values, and embed them into your people processes - so you can steer towards performance!
Every company is unique and has the ability to attract talent with their own brand. We are experts when it comes to building up brands and being creative with the way you position yourself. We’ll help you define what makes you special, and give your brand a huge boost by providing practical tools and templates to use.
Performance and Growth
In a high-performing organization, employees get regular feedback and know how they can grow and progress. We help with designing a performance framework that will get the best out of your people. Managers will learn how and when to have conversations, and how to inspire greatness.
Efficient tooling will save you time and money. It will also greatly enhance the employee experience and make your life a lot easier. We’ve worked with almost every imaginable tool, and know which ones fit your size and budget. We can help with the selection and implementation of your new HRIS, ATS, Surveys, etc. We can also improve the way these tools are connected, enabling better integration and reporting.
Inspirational leadership and strong management will make any organisation irresistible. We can help your key people become better leaders. We do this by creating manager onboarding programs, and leadership curricula, and providing in-depth training and 1:1 coaching.

Examples of projects we regularly deliver
We start with a conversation about your needs. Based on what you want to achieve, we scope the project with you. We will advise on the best way to approach this, our ideas, and agree on the budget.
EXPLORE & ENGAGE
We create a project timeline with clear deliverables. The project plan is shared with you and used to track our progress to ensure everything is nice and transparent!
MAP THE MASTERPLAN
This is the research, design, testing and implementation phase. We love to co-create and often work with a project team including your team members.
CREATE & ITERATE
When the implementation is complete, we hand over and ensure you have a finished product. If training is required we will create this for you.
IMPLEMENT & INSPIRE
How we work with you
We don't work with a one-size-fits-all mentality. Instead, we bring many years of experience, blending best practices, and real-world learnings to create a tailored solution just for you.
We love co-design, working with input from employees, founders, leaders, or your people team (if you have one!).
We have had a fantastic collaboration with 7people. Jon and Judith led the implementation of our very first HRIS. In doing so, they digitized and sustainably established many of our HR processes. Judith also created our employee handbook: a challenging project given the 16 countries we operate in (including 16 different laws and regulations!). It was a valuable partnership, and the result exceeded our expectations. We will not hesitate to work with Ingeborg and her team again for every upcoming HR project: 7people rocks!
Sandrien Boogaard | HR Director GoodHabitz
As a law firm in the Netherlands, we immediately experienced the added value of Yara and Iris. In an interactive and inclusive way, Yara helped us define our unique company values and the structure of our back office. Based on these values, she delivered our people strategy and growth & performance program. Together with Iris, she brought our employer branding story forward which resulted in attracting multiple new colleagues. This enabled us to grow! It was a pleasure to work with them, as it helped us professionally and we had a blast.
Remko Roosjen | Partner MAAK
At a critical growth stage with our company hiring the right people was of the utmost importance. Ingeborg guided us through the whole hiring process and set up our people strategy. Because of this, we were able to secure unique talents who trusted our company and felt our message. She brings so much invaluable experience with her. We continue to work with 7people as our People & Culture advisor and help us become one of Amsterdam's most desirable places to work.
Alexander Sporre | Co-founder Stories
Ingeborg helped us create a professional and fun-loving People Strategy to enable our further growth. She helped us evolve into a desirable place to work with people at the heart of our organization. With an eye for talent acquisition, she also helped us find our new Head of People & Culture. At this stage we still rely on Ingeborg as a valuable advisor and continue to work with 7people.
Jorn van Klooster | Founder & Co-owner Loavies
In the 7 months that Sanne has been with us, she built a great foundation for People & Culture and acted as a great sparring partner for the leadership team. We loved having her on the team and can highly recommend other startups to work with her and 7people! Thanks so much for your great work.

Answers to some common questions about People & Culture Projects with 7people.
We get this question a lot, especially from clients who haven't worked with external people & culture support before. Luckily, the answer is an easy one - sometimes, you simply need an extra set of hands!
This can be for different reasons including:
Lack of expertise: Dedicated people & culture practices may be new territory for your company, and so you need expert advice.
Change is needed: Your company may be looking for innovative, new ways of doing things and so you want people with the right knowledge to help you get creative.
Lack of capacity: Your team may be simply too busy to tackle everything and they need additional support.
Whatever the reason, we can help you get there.
Getting started with our team is super simple.
