Introducing Homerun. An online tool for companies to attract talent and hire great people - making recruitment better looking and more engaging. They are also the minds behind the online magazine and newsletter The Art of Work, exploring company culture, employer branding, work/life balance and office rituals at design-minded companies, all over the world.
Homerun's founders, Willem van Roosmalen and Thomas Moes, have a slightly different background to traditional recruiters: they are designers, and founders of the well-known Dutch creative job platform FONTANEL. According to Willem: 'Everyone agrees that talent is the number one asset that defines the success of a company, both now and in the future, but people rarely see the connection between talent and recruitment.' Thomas: 'All companies are effectively posting the same job post. Just with a different email address and a few small differences in the general description of the job details. But we got to know some of these companies inside out and knew that they were completely different.' This was the beginning of Homerun, an online tool that enables companies to tell a more personal and appealing story to prospective employees.
Most companies understand the importance of creating a strong brand to communicate with customers, but not the need to have a strong presence amongst potential employees. Homerun enables companies to tell a more authentic story, instead of listing bullet points outlining generic skills.
Already hundreds of leading creative companies rely on Homerun to attract better candidates and streamline their entire recruitment process, including VanMoof, Denham, WeTransfer, Tony's Chocolonely, Bugaboo, The Correspondent and Bugaboo. To name but a few.
Their online magazine The Art of Work - containing articles and guides - is also loved and read by many renowned international, creative brands like Netflix, Nike and Mailchimp.
