ACCESS is delighted to announce that the European Space Agency / European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESA/ESTEC) recently signed an agreement to join ACCESS Patron Programme. In taking this step ESA/ESTEC shows it is committed to supporting the successful settlement and integration of their international staff members and their families, to their new lives in the Netherlands. ESA/ESTEC joins ACCESS’ other Patrons in providing some of the solutions new arrivals need, to feel settled in their new country of residence. As of 21 March, ACCESS will be providing support to ESA/ESTEC’s HR as well as Staff Association and working to ensure people are aware of how things work in the Netherlands, and how the process of relocation can be effectively managed. ACCESS Patrons include, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), TU Delft’s Coming to the Netherlands Services, Sapienza Consulting and ExpatHelp.
“It is encouraging to see more and more employers look for the additional support they can provide their employees, we are proud to be a part of the solutions being sought,” said Deborah Valentine, Director of ACCESS.
Since its 30th Anniversary in 2016 ACCESS has expanded its services. In addition to supporting individuals with questions they have about a variety of subject matters – from healthcare to education, employment and leaving the Netherlands, ACCESS directly supports the Human Resources departments of Patron organisations. HR support includes projects specifically prepared to assist employers of internationals to further assist those staff in arriving, settling and living in the Netherlands. Supporting HR departments is but one of the services ACCESS has pursued . This HR support is combined with more targeted activities for the individual employees themselves, and their spouses/partners.
ACCESS, set up in 1985, is an independent not-for-profit organisation serving internationals to successfully settle in the Netherlands. The ACCESS vision is to provide unique, comprehensive and essential services nationally, through the expertise and experience of its volunteer expatriate community.
