We enjoy setting a good example!

Sustainable employability

At De Baak Seaside we attach great importance to sustainable employability, our social significance, unique talent and providing opportunities. Therefore we are a work placement company. At De Baak Seaside, and also elsewhere, we support the quality of running a business and the positive long-term effects this has on people, the environment and society.
