We are Hero
We proudly work with
Hero is a growth company where honesty and quality share first place. We offer the best professionals for every job, take care of the entire contracting process for external hires (even if not recruited through us) and provide real-time dashboards & tooling, so that our clients remain in control and keep an overview. We are the committed partner who focuses on the challenge you face.
Do you have no idea what we do, but would you like to find out? Then take a look at Hero for dummies. There, we explain our complex services in simple terms.
The Hero culture
We value our strong culture and pay great attention to it. The key is that we are always open and honest, that everything we say is true. We find that giving feedback is normal, but always in a constructive and respectful manner. And very important, making mistakes is allowed at Hero. But if you make a mistake or see something going wrong, you report it immediately, even before you try to fix it. That way, colleagues can support and help solve the problem. This is how we prevent unnecessary stress and create the best possible collegial environment.
We find it extremely important that new employees quickly learn what Hero stands for, what our history is, how we treat customers and candidates, what our culture is and what challenges we set for ourselves. That is why every new employee goes through an extensive onboarding process, which is full of information, relaxation and inspiration. The onboarding ensures that new Hero employees are quickly up and running and become part of the team.
#TeamHero is #TeamHero for a reason; trips are regularly organised for the various departments, or the entire team. We like to exercise, lunch, laugh and dine together. In addition, the annual Hero Day takes place; an inspirational day (including company visits) that is filled with new content every year.
Work Hard & Play Hard is one of our 4 core values. The “Play Hard” takes place mainly in the own game room. The pool table, table tennis table, dartboards, play stations, computer and bar provide relaxation, team building and entertainment. A wonderful place to blow off some steam after hard work.
We see our consultation structure as the heartbeat of Hero and it determines our (work) rhythm: daily stand-ups, personal and business-related weekly, monthly and quarterly meetings ensure that we are always quickly up to date on everything that is going on.
Hero is a growth company, and a certain type of employee goes with that; enthusiastic and inquisitive professionals who want to improve every day, who do not shy away from challenges, and who like to keep up with the latest trends and developments. Hero supports its employees in this by making participation in training courses and informative meetings possible.
In addition to our consultation structure, we communicate a lot through our internal platform called HeroToday. On this intranet, a lot of interesting and useful information can be consulted, news is shared and we try to inspire each other with various tips and recommendations.
All employees are given the opportunity to continuously develop themselves. Of course, this can be done in various ways, including coaching. Hero cooperates with various independent coaches. Employees decide for themselves which coach they will work with and what the focus of the sessions should be.
Every month, the Hero of the month is awarded; an honorary title that the person concerned receives from his/her colleague, based on a special performance, unbridled dedication or as a support. A nice token of appreciation from your colleague!
We are a network organisation, the man in the middle. We thrive on awards and good relationships, which we enjoy maintaining. Personal. For while much can be automated, a good match remains personal. Mutual trust and knowing the needs of the client and the candidate are only possible if you invest in each other.
Growth company pur sang
“Hero is a growth company, because we work on our own improvement every day. It means: continuous investment, great desire, discipline and perseverance. Good is never good enough. What we do well now, we did less well last year. What is good now, we want to do better again in a year’s time. That drive is intrinsic, because we want to be the best.”

Hero door de jaren heen; een selectie van memorabele momenten.
