Welcome by Lavinia Meijer
"There may not be many star harpists in the world, but Lavinia
Meijer has as good a chance of becoming one as any. Certainly some of the
world's great orchestras and halls have cottoned on to her talent early,
as she appears with the likes of the Royal Concertgebouw and the Israel
Philharmonic, while her Carnegie Hall debut came - for a solo concert -
a little over a year ago." - The British magazine Gramophone

What lessons can be learned from the world's Top Employers?

needs to the employee of today. Dealing with the different needs of different
generations, and the concept of "flexibility" is key to being
an employer of choice in the future.

Its Top Employers project currently runs in 12 countries on 3 continents.

than 10.000 large and international organisations.
