September 1, 2015 TUFF Leadership Training invites to a Free Seminar 28-07-2015

Swedish Chamber New Member Tuff Leadership Training is inviting to a FREE introduciton seminar in Amsterdam to show their Swedish way of coaching managers in order to achieve successful teams.

September 1, 2015 from 09.30 - 12.00

Most feedback has no effect! Most feedback has no effect! We’ve given hundreds of managers training in leadership skills. One important characteristic of a good manager is the ability to give honest feedback. With this in mind, we’re offering a free breakfast seminar on feedback. Giving and receiving feedback is a skill that we all need to develop. Instead of being honest and frank about what isn’t working, we prefer to be “nice” and avoid uncomfortable situations. Or we give feedback in order to correct and adjust. Feedback delivered like this just triggers the person’s defences, provokes argument and…leads to nothing.

So how do you give feedback without being too “nice” and woolly, or too hard and overbearing? Come to our breakfast seminar and find out. The two-hour seminar will be held in the Chamber of Commerce of Amsterdam at De Ruyterkade 5 on 1 September at 10 am. Looking forward to seeing you at the seminar! This seminar is free of charge. Register by sending name, company and contact details to info@tuffleadershiptraining.com

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce is very pleased to introduce our new member Payroll Resources 27-07-2015

Payroll Resources works with modern web-based software from Nmbrs (www.nmbrs.com) and believes strongly in offering high level service at a single flat rate. We are here to help you with all of you payroll matters.   The company was founded in 2007 but really took off in 2009. Today we serve small and large (up to 500 employees) national and international companies. 
In November 2014 we have put the first step to go international.  We think with our expertise together with a solid software house just like Nmbrs and local presence (local payroll specialist) we have a strong business model to enter the Swedish market.   

Although we work in the cloud we added local Swedish presence as an absolute must, in January 2015 we hired a SRF qualified senior Swedish payroll specialist to serve our customers in their own language.  From the Netherlands we offer system knowledge and heads for capacity to our local Swedish staff.  We believe local presence is necessary to offer high quality payroll services.

I joined this community because I would like to get in contact with Dutch companies who are also opening businesses in Sweden, we can offer them payroll support.   I also would like to get in contact with Swedish companies who are opening businesses in The Netherlands.

Thank you, 
Ralph Wilbers
CEO & Founder of Payroll Resources BV - a WMC company.

In order to meet future challenges and opportunities for IKEA, Inter IKEA Systems Holding B.V. and INGKA Holding B.V. (the holding company of IKEA Group) have signed a Letter of Intent to transfer the range, supply and production activities to Inter IKEA Systems. The tasks to set the IKEA product range and manage the supply chain are currently assigned to companies in IKEA Group, based on agreements with Inter IKEA Systems B.V. These services are mainly provided by IKEA of Sweden AB and IKEA Supply AG. IKEA Industry will also be part of the transaction, as production is closely linked to Range and Supply.

“We believe it is a good time to do this change as we have a positive development in the IKEA business worldwide and can continue to build from our strengths in people, performance and plans. We are convinced the change will make it possible to build a strong and dynamic IKEA for tomorrow.”says Torbjörn Lööf, CEO Inter IKEA Systems B.V.

The ambition is to simplify and improve the IKEA franchise system, creating better conditions for increased customer focus and future expansion. There will be no redundancies of people due to the transaction and all employment contracts and agreements will be respected. IKEA of Sweden, IKEA Supply and IKEA Industry will continue to operate with their bases in Älmhult (Sweden), Pratteln(Switzerland) and Malmö (Sweden), respectively. The transaction will be completed 31 August 2016.
