In this infographic we highlight a few successful strategies used by Best Dutch Brands.

Almost half of the professional working population in the Netherlands consists of knowledge workers. Yet, there is a growing shortage of knowledge workers, particularly scientists, technologists and R&D workers.  So Dutch brands attract and hire highly skilled knowledge workers.

Most expats come from Europe, India, USA, China and Japan.
