First noticeable change in the reorganisation18 May 2017
Royal FloraHolland is renovating its organisation. We shall keep you updated about these changes as they occur.
Royal FloraHolland wants to achieve better digital services and a more modern logistics (involving robots) for its members and their buyers. This means that we shall change, terminate, initiate or outsource activities, services or processes. The first changes are now noticeable. For example, the 'Sample Bus' went on its last journey earlier this month. This initiative was originally started by growers to promote plants and tree nursery products, but a declining trend in its use has been evident for several years.
We shall update you immediately
In the coming months, we plan to inform you about various modifications in the field of services, activities and changes in the process. Whether it involves changing, stopping, starting or outsourcing, if it is important to you, we shall keep you updated. This means you may occasionally receive several messages from us within a short period, containing information about separate services, activities or processes. You will always be informed about the latest changes as quickly as possible.
These modifications of the organisation also involve a reorganisation of personnel. In the past two weeks, our employees have been told whether we shall continue to have suitable work for them. Lucas Vos explained, "We knew that the reorganisation would have painful consequences for some colleagues. And now that the moment has arrived, I feel them too. They are not departing voluntarily, which is overwhelming. These colleagues have worked with great dedication for years in our cooperative. Their efforts have been extremely valuable and I am very grateful to them."
Now that the organisation is actually changing, our employees are experiencing uncertainty again. For example, can the remaining staff cope with the quantity of work? Lucas said, "I am also concerned about the workload, but not just because there are fewer employees. We have sometimes organised the work rather inefficiently. By improving our work processes immediately for our growers, buyers and each other, we can reduce the pressure and better our service provision."
