Strategic communications is at the top of the European Commission’s agenda. To achieve results such as Green Deal, public consent and stakeholder engagement are considered key topics. Member States are faced with the challenge to build and maintain commitment for the EU among their citizens, which requires communication efforts and a participative government. In turn, these challenges also require capacity building – an investment in the size (number of communications professional) and quality (professional level and scope) of communication departments.
Berenschot publishes update on the energy transition
Most innovations are created in collaboration (Berenschot Strategy Trends 2019), which allows firms to innovate faster, and spread the risks and costs associated with innovation. Firms strengthen their competitive position through collaboration with complementing partners in forms like co-creation, alliances, innovation hubs or innovation ecosystems. Ecosystems have rapidly gained attention for innovation collaboration.
In September, Berenschot expanded its consultancy practice to the European Union. In the heart of the European district in Brussels, Berenschot has now opened a new office in the Holland House (Rue d’Arlon 20). During the launch event Robert Wester, Managing Director of Berenschot-EU, presented a whitepaper with recommendations how to design and execute an ambitious Green Deal.
No less than 71 percent of Dutch HR professionals expect their jobs to change in the coming period. This is the conclusion of the 'HR Trends 2019-2020' research report carried out among almost 2,000 HR professionals in the Netherlands. The research was an initiative of Performa publishers and was implemented by Berenschot with support from AFAS Software. HR staff are particularly aware that jobs in human resources admin and payroll are changing as a result of digitalisation.
The serious attention that energy and climate issues are receiving in politics and wider society is not yet reflected in the business community in Belgium. This is one of the results of the Strategy Trends Survey that management consultancy Berenschot conducted last summer in collaboration with the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce for Belgium and Luxembourg (NKVK). The research surveyed 132 entrepreneurs, managers and senior executives from the Belgian business community.
Forty-five Berenschot staff came together in 15 relay teams to take part in the TriTogether Middle Distance triathlon. Through their team efforts they helped to raise € 24,000 for the ‘Familiehuis Daniel den Hoed’ (Rotterdam).
From 1 September, Berenschot is expanding its current range of consultancy services towards the European Union and Dutch clients who wish to spread their wings in Europe. The new Berenschot EU team will provide clients with strategic European advice and training on EU influence and help them to evaluate European policy at all levels. Additionally, an EU impact scan is being developed for organisations in the Netherlands.
In summer 2020 Berenschot will move into the ‘Life’ office complex at the Papendorp business park. Our home base will still be Utrecht but we will be leaving our current offices on the Europalaan.
Large-scale production and application of blue hydrogen will enable the Rotterdam industrial area to significantly reduce its CO2 emissions well before 2030. This is the result of a feasibility study carried out by 16 companies and organisations working together in the H-vision project with the support of Berenschot. Minister Wiebes of Economic Affairs and Climate received the H-vision report on 2 July.
