Make Hiring Easy
Looking for an easy solution to having a more flexible workforce? Contracting (called uitzenden in the Netherlands) is a hiring practice that allows businesses to employ people through an agency. In this case, the contingent worker is called a contractor. Blue Lynx employs the contractor but they work for you. Businesses choose contracting because it reduces staffing costs, increases flexibility, includes HR management and salary administration and saves you time.

The Advantages of Contracting
Hire highly-qualified talent on your terms
A common misconception about staff contracting is that it is mainly used for hiring seasonal low-skilled workers. While this could be the case for your company, it could be quite the contrary. Most of our contractors at Blue Lynx are highly-qualified and experienced international professionals working for Fortune 500+ companies, NGO’s, start-ups and middle to large organisations.
Abide by all legal requirements with ease
As a contracting agency (uitzendbureau), Blue Lynx’s activities fall under the Collective Labour Agreement for Temporary Workers, known as ABU CLA for the Netherlands. Every company employing temporary staff is legally bound to this legislation and anything outside of its ruling is a breach of the Dutch Law. Blue Lynx takes care of all the legal side of employment. Our HR experts will educate and guide through every step of the hiring process and beyond.
Reduce costs with a flexible workforce
Staff up or down easily in response to business fluctuations, protecting your permanent workforce and controlling costs. With Blue Lynx on your team, it’s easy to reduce the costs associated with hiring, benefits, retirement, taxes and long-term compensation.
