Young Royal HaskoningDHV is the international platform that connects almost 2,000 young professionals working for our organisation worldwide. Through its events, young professionals get to know our company, improve their network, exchange ideas and learn from each other. The platform aims to promote cohesion among our young staff by offering plenty of opportunities to connect and stimulate personal development. In 2020 it successfully adapted to the new way of interacting and continued to contribute to the personal development of all young professionals.
During the year, Young Royal HaskoningDHV organised various inspiring events, such as a digital exposition about our smart solutions, workshops to raise awareness about equality, diversity and inclusion, and sessions on presenting, storytelling and the Art of Flip-Thinking. Colleagues were able to join virtual quizzes, games and more. This year too, a series of podcasts was launched enabling colleagues and leaders to share their stories on personal and professional topics. The platform also held a global event for all young colleagues. This was a day-long knowledge-sharing marathon, hosted by young professionals from around the world, bringing the company strategy to action.
The Young platform is used to raise awareness of opportunities that can impact the daily operations of the company, and collaborate with our senior management, corporate groups and business lines. Our management actively supports Young and provides the opportunity to contribute to the future vision of our company.
