Goals and support
All these points I’ve talked about are a recurring theme in the company’s goals for each year.
In those goals our current status of for example, our cooperation with education, is drawn out. Where are we, and where do we want to go? How many people can we help back into the labor market, and what is the policy on our resources?
In order to attain these goals, people at Hul le Kes put in their best and in doing so, and we are advised and checked by our advisory board. This board consists of Ine van Burgsteden, Adriaan Luteijn and Peter Hobbelen. These three people come from different professional backgrounds, combining different perspectives and a lot of experience in the social realm. They’re there to help us steer the right course.
Besides the board, Hul le Kes receives great support from other parties. As a part of Deloitte’s ‘Scaling Social Enterprises’, Hul le Kes and 13 other Dutch businesses are supported with the knowledge and expertise of roughly 1750 of Deloitte’s advisors. Additionally, the Rabo Foundation, Stichting Doen and the municipality of Arnhem have supported us financially in setting up our social activities. It is with their investment that our company runs as it does now.
There are numerous people and organisations that have helped Hul le Kes along. Quite frequently we are donated materials, help or financial aid in order to do what we do, and widen our impact.
Lastly, of course, every sold Hul le Kes item is a direct contribution to our mission.
On behalf of the whole team I want to thank all partners and customers for their varying contributions to a workable, alternative fashion system! Onwards to a circular and social system!
