We will use some specific best practices around the topic of Data Mesh, gained in mature data environments, to provide insight into how to focus your data ambition and how to translate this into your data roadmap and ownership.

Get ready for an interactive session around topics such as: Data Architecture, Data Positioning, Security, Governance and how to bring people into this transition!

laurens simonse & raymond de looze

How do you really put your people first and guard your business success?

Many organizations claim to put their people at #1. But what if that conflicts with other interests, such as commercial ones? In the first place, there is only room for one. But business success is also necessary, otherwise it is not sustainable. Two-leggedness we call it: people at #1 and commercially successful. How do you get that done?

A session that, as far as we’re concerned, you can’t afford to miss. The two authors of The Rockstars Method step on stage together to take you through how Team Rockstars ‘ people-centered mindset leads to growth in an interactive workshop. Is a completely people-centered approach unfeasible for your company, team or department?

These two gentlemen think otherwise. The important thing, though, is to get it down to the capillaries of the organization, but oh well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Laurens and Raymond also know how to give handles for your specific situation to put people on 1.

How do you bring your core values to life?

Core values are an important element of culture. But they have meaning only if people actually act on them in a normal working day. Otherwise, it is nothing more than some pretty words in a forgotten corner of the website. Find out how Team Rockstars pulled this off.

Our greatest standard-bearers of Rockstars culture are on stage together. Together, Laurens Simonse (Founder and Owner) and Bart Nijskens (Founder and Owner) have been responsible for creating the Rockstars culture. This was not always without struggle, Bart and Laurens take you through how a feeling was transformed into powerful words, which then went on to serve as a measuring stick for day-to-day operations.

In the end, they achieved with it that the entire staff can list them without stammering and apply them daily. They take you through how to formulate core values for your organization, team or department and what it means to start bringing those words to life.

simone van erp & raymond de looze

how can you achieve shared interest?

An organization and the people pulling the same rope. That’s the goal. Side by side instead of facing each other. Because in the end, everyone benefits, both the people and the organization. Team Rockstars IT takes this very far, with a crystal clear 70 / 30 revenue model. But how does that work for your organization?

Simone van Erp, Chief of Staff and Raymond de Looze (People Strategist / Double-OO) take you through how a shared interest was able to accelerate the growth of Team Rockstars. We understand better than anyone that a clear revenue model may not apply to your department, team or organization. Together, Simone (from the business) and Raymond (from the people) will show that there are great opportunities beyond the merits to achieve shared interest. Expect this workshop to give you a lot of practice in recognizing and indexing opportunities for shared interests within your department, team or organization.

Culture versus diversity and inclusion.

Having a strong culture like Team Rockstars IT has many advantages. But it also chafes with the importance of diversity and inclusion. Because what price do you pay if the organization is especially attractive to people who are, flat out, pretty similar anyway? How do you create a very strong culture that is also diverse and inclusive? A challenging dilemma!

Our Chief of Staff, Simone van Erp, balances daily between these two power terms: culture and inclusion. From her experience, strong background and role, she will take you through how choosing to have a strong culture, should not lead to a lack of diversity and inclusion.

Simone is committed daily to the work happiness of all Team Rockstars IT colleagues. She also focuses on increasing the number of ladies in IT, with her intiative: She’s an IT Rockstar. How choosing culture leads to challenges in recruitment and how Team Rockstars deals with them, hear here!

Recruitment, how to find and engage talent the Rockstars way.

At Team Rockstars IT, we take recruitment very seriously. And with success. Want to discover what helps us do that? Hire for culture? The importance of measurement? The power of referrals? We are happy to take you through our process that allows us to hire hundreds of high-end IT professionals each year.

Even at Team Rockstars, in this tight market, dozens of qualified software developers are not knocking down the door every day. How do we still manage to stand out and deliver what we promise? What are these promises anyway?

With 25 years of experience in the recruitment business (with multiple labels), Laurens Simonse is considered one of the stalwarts of recruitment in the Netherlands. He used that experience to set up Team Rockstars, with a growth from 0 to 600 people we can say that recruitment worked just fine. Laurens along with our recruitment manager Claudine will take you through Team Rockstars’ recruitment secret, or is there none?
