Bioss

Bart Kuijers

I joined Third Foundation Systems in 1998, prior to the formation of Bioss SA. My 22 years of corporate work was mainly in the mining industry, initially in HR specialist and management roles and later in corporate-level roles. I have been consulting and freelancing as a Bioss Associate for more than ten years.

I believe the concept that "people are your main asset" becomes apparent when we realize that the right people at the right place at the right time help make a business successful. The Bioss approach and tools support that understanding.

Since becoming a Freelance Consultant and Bioss Associate, I have met thousands of people and had discussions with them as individuals, with their managers, peers and subordinates. It always is interesting to talk to people and listen to their stories, especially their recollection of their careers, lives, experiences, their dreams for the future and their fears and joys. How they experience their work and working relationships will always interest me.

I am old enough in years to enjoy discussions with those who dream of the utopia that is to happen in their retired life. Yet as enjoyable some of these dreams are, so tragic are the stories of those who have not prepared themselves mentally, financially and physically for that major change in their lives. Many a time the dream loses its shine when reality dawns upon them that they no longer mean anything to an employer or to colleagues, and instead of "normal customs", they face a new stretch into uncertainty.
