Open Line declared entrepreneur of 2012 for the Beek township

Open Line has been declared entrepreneur of 2012 for the Beek township last week. Congratulations to all my new colleagues for this achievement.

Below I’ve included some links to Dutch articles covering this award:

I truly believe that expertise combined with passion is what differentiates you. The funny thing is that companies and people like this strive to achieve the best outcome. Winning an award is not the goal, it is merely the result.

I’ve only started working at Open Line since the first of November and haven’t had any part in this result. Still it feels really good to be part of a succesful company with great colleagues, that is also being recognized as such by the community. I look forward to being able to add value in my own way to this already great company.

Starting my new job at Open Line today

After having worked at my previous employer for five years, it was time for a change of scenery. For me it had been clear for some time that Open Line was THE company I wanted to work for. I decided to follow my dream and did not even bother to look at other companies anymore.

Main motivators for me for wanting to work for Open Line are:

  • The people that work there are friendly, very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do.
  • There’s a “can do” mentality.
  • They work with modern technologies.
  • Potential for personal growth and learning many new things on many different levels.
  • Both colleagues and customers are considered to be partners.
  • They have good and close relations with many other well-known (ICT) companies and have won various awards along the way because of it.
  • Their values closely match my own values.
  • I want to be able to work for a company I truly care about, believe in and where I’m able to give it my all without any reservations or doubt.
  • They’re growing.
  • In my opinion they possess many of the characters of a High Performance Organization (HPO).

As such I made my intentions clear to a friend of mine who works there and I applied for the job opening of Microsoft Specialist. What followed was (in my opinion) a thorough procedure to see if we were both a good fit for each other. And according to the both of us, this was the case.

I look forward to starting today, and I will especially enjoy meeting new interesting people and catching up with the people I already know (those who attended the same school and those I met at my previous employer).
