Download Report

As the 'social distancing economy' gradually starts to gain momentum, we will be able to return to the office in a few weeks or months. But not all at the same time. ''By putting protocols in place today, businesses and organizations everywhere can prepare to open their doors once again,'' says Harold Coenders, head of workplace innovation.

Organizing effective social distancing at the office requires efficient redesign, clear communication and sound planning. ''This combination can increase the number of workplaces in use without endangering the health of employees. To achieve this balance, it is vital to be guided by a clear set of basic principles.''

Senior Consultant

I'm a  360° design thinking (Senior) Workplace Consultant, specialized  at creating meaningfull places for our clients, using the intersection of strategy, people, marketing, product and brand as starting points. I believe that real-estate and workplaces can add to a company's result if executioned well. I'm driven by research, thoughtful insight, critical analysis and true empathy.

My experience ranges from global brands to (local) start-ups, helping them with the creation of engaging experiences. Creating a destination where people want to be instead of an office environment where they are merely expected to work is what I believe works best.

I started my career in the Industry working as a Key-Accountmanager in Education  at Ahrend in  2006. After almost 7 years I  started working as a sales and marketing manager for Avex International, a company specialized in  System Integration and Unified Comunnication.  In this role I had the opportunity to bring the world of Real-estate, Furniture, AV & IT together in Bespoke Tailormade solutions. Before joining Colliers, I was given the chance to bring tohether, all the knowledge and experience that I've gained in my previous jobs. I joined the Dutch Steelcase dealer and managed  the sales- and  projectmanagers whilst working as a Workplace Consultant for global and key accounts.
