NBBU, like APN Flexgroep, believes in the importance of a flexible labor market. That is why APN is a certified member of NBBU. Every NBBU company meets the highest quality requirements. The NBBU Collective Agreement for Temporary Workers is the right balance between flex and security. First and foremost, NBBU acts in accordance with the agreements in the Social Agreement and the Work and Security Act.
Every temporary employment agency that is a member of NBBU meets the requirement to obtain the SNA quality mark and thus satisfies all the financial and administrative criteria that temporary employment agencies must meet. This is an extra guarantee for our clients that APN Flexgroep puts quality and reliability first on all fronts.
APN Flexgroep is SNA certified. Stichting Normering Arbeid (SNA) issues the SNA quality mark on the basis of two standards, NEN 4400-1 and NEN 4400-2. Companies with the SNA quality mark are periodically (generally twice a year) checked for their obligations arising from employment, including:
Identification of the company;
The declaration and payment in the Netherlands of wage tax and sales tax due;
Wage payment in line with the statutory minimum wage and minimum vacation allowance;
Carrying out identity checks and verifying entitlement to work in the Netherlands;
Preventing risks of liability and fines arising from hiring in and outsourcing work.
APN Flexgroep is listed in the SNF register. Organizations included in the register meet the migrant worker housing standard. This standard involves the following features: space and privacy, sanitary facilities, safety and hygiene, amenities, provision of information and other requirements and fire safety. Each part includes a number of specific requirements that the housing must meet. APN is also listed in the SNF tenant register. This way, every year, APN Flexgroep demonstrates that housing for all migrant workers is provided by organizations that hold the SNF quality mark.
VBW Foundation is a non-profit organization that focuses on insurance issues for flex- and knowledge migrants. Tailor-made services have been developed to meet the specific needs of flex- and highly skilled migrants and their employers. The Van der Voort Group is the executive organization on behalf of the VBW Foundation with which we, as APN Flex Group, cooperate closely.
The immediate reason for the establishment of the Foundation was the introduction of the Health Insurance Act in 2006. Through the Foundation, purchasing forces of individual temporary workers and temporary employment agencies were bundled. This has led to a health insurance with a competitive premium and favorable conditions.
