People and Culture Foundation

You are a startup founder, and to build your product and company… you need a high-performing team. You probably need help with hiring, rewarding, and developing your people. You don’t have the HR expertise inhouse yet, so where do you start? 

We help you with creating a People and Culture Roadmap, based on your company’s phase and priorities. This roadmap is then turned into building a rock-solid people foundation, enabling you to successfully scale. You’ll have all the tools, knowledge, processes and training to offer a great employee experience to everyone in your company.

Training & Inspiration

Our methodology

All work we do is customized to your unique situation. We love startups and have been through hypergrowth, which means we understand your needs and can anticipate what is coming up.

Our consultants complement each other when it comes to their backgrounds. For you, this guarantees superior quality, extra insights, and always having a backup when needed. For our consultants, it means always having a full team of experts to brainstorm with to come up with the best solutions.

Every week our team comes together on Friday, and we share insights into the projects and clients we work for. This means we learn from each other every week, and it ensures we are always up to date with new tools, ways of working, and the projects we deliver. We are committed to delivering exceptional results for each client and on each project.

According to research, 7 is the ideal team size. We see ourselves as the ideal addition to your team. It’s also a magic number. 7 stands for completeness, creativity and inner wisdom. It stands for the creation of all things.

We won’t get carried away, but we do believe in creating wow moments and will definitely bring a bit of magic to your organization.

Nice things clients say about us

We have had a fantastic collaboration with 7people. Jon and Judith led the implementation of our very first HRIS. In doing so, they digitized and sustainably established many of our HR processes. Judith also created our employee handbook: a challenging project given the 16 countries we operate in (including 16 different laws and regulations!). It was a valuable partnership, and the result exceeded our expectations. We will not hesitate to work with Ingeborg and her team again for every upcoming HR project: 7people rocks!
Sandrien de NijsHR Director @ GoodHabitz
Ingeborg made a big impact on the growth and culture at Payaut. She helped us build a professional and fun environment, and because of her advise we are better able to attract top talent as well as retain them, which is challenging in this competitive market. We look forward to continuing the work with her and the 7people team to grow Payaut.

At a critical growth stage with our company hiring the right people was of the utmost importance. Ingeborg guided us through the whole hiring process and set up our people strategy. Because of this, we were able to secure unique talents who trusted our company and felt our message. She brings so much invaluable experience with her. We continue to work with 7people as our People & Culture advisor and help us become one of Amsterdam's most desirable places to work.

Ingeborg created a professional and refreshing 'people' function from scratch. She knows how to shape a performance driven culture based on strong employee engagement and has put Mollie on the map as an attractive employer. She can add a lot of value to organizations that really want to make progress by offering new perspectives and concrete solutions.

We have had a great collaboration with 7people. Judith, amongst other projects, led the implementation of our growth and development cycle which started with the preparation of job profiles and ended with a full flash annual growth cycle being explained to the entire company. It was a valuable partnership of which the result exceeded our expectations. We hope to work together with 7people in the future as well!
Pim KerckheartCFO @ Salonized
Ingeborg helped us create a professional and fun-loving People Strategy to enable our further growth. She helped us evolve into a desirable place to work with people at the heart of our organization. With an eye for talent acquisition, she also helped us find our new Head of People & Culture. At this stage we still rely on Ingeborg as a valuable advisor and continue to work with 7people.
Jorn van KloosterFounder / Co-Owner @ LOAVIES
We appointed a new CPO at Uberall with the help of Ingeborg. The search was successfully concluded, additionally she was simply great to work with and supported us with a number of HR questions along the way.
Florian HübnerFounder and CEO @ Uberall
The 7people team supported us with building a professional, efficient and attractive people foundation. Sanne and Yara became part of our team, and helped us to establish ways of working, define our values, built the HR system and designed our growth framework. They also recruited our Head of People, handing over at the end of their assignment to our new internal people team. The result of our work together was much better than anything we could have accomplished on our own. Fun ánd professional to work with, we'd have them back in a heartbeat.
Uwe van RensburgCo-founder @ Biller
The 7people team referred excellent candidates for HRBP and senior TA profiles to us in a short period of time, resulting in 2 appointments. We are really impressed by the quality of candidates and the great fit for our company.
Jemma JohnsChief People Officer @ Irdeto
For a period of 6 months Romara has done a tremendous job supporting us with HR tasks during the maternity leave of our HR Manager. And doing these tasks with a super positive mindset, it’s contagious! It really was a pleasure to work with Romara, we wish her best of luck with her upcoming projects!
Eric PolakChange Manager (People/HR) @ Instapro Group
In the 7 months that Sanne has been with us, she built a great foundation for People & Culture and acted as a great sparring partner for the leadership team. We loved having her on the team and can highly recommend other startups to work with her and 7people! Thanks so much for your great work.
Hannah BrockeCo-founder & CSO @ PlanBlue
As a law firm in the Netherlands, we immediately experienced the added value of Yara and Iris. In an interactive and inclusive way, Yara helped us define our unique company values and the structure of our back office. Based on these values, she delivered our people strategy and growth & performance program. Together with Iris, she brought our employer branding story forward which resulted in attracting multiple new colleagues. This enabled us to grow! It was a pleasure to work with them, as it helped us professionally and we had a blast.
