Get to know Rick Weijers

I have been working at Quintop Management Consultants since October 2019. From my first day at Quintop I immediately felt a personal, professional atmosphere and I got an assignment with many responsibilities.

What strikes me the most?

I have noticed that everyone at Quintop is always willing to help each other, we also jokingly call each other our second family. This is nice if you run into something, for example. This commitment to support each other is reflected in various clients. Quintoppers make every effort to carry out the assignment as well as possible, together with the customer, in order to exceed the expectations of the client. In addition to my assignment, Quintop is also very committed to my development through the High Potential program in which I participate. Especially the training courses that test my work, behavior and character really attract my attention. You have to dare to look at yourself in the mirror for a long time, open yourself up, but you will benefit from it all your life! This ensures that I can develop myself, so that I can continuously add value to the clients. 

What am I doing now?

In my first assignment I was part of a global HR team working as a data specialist who worked on the transition and coordination of data structures for all employees within a global player in the field of chemistry. In this team I was directly responsible for one of the three business lines and indirectly responsible for the global data structures. To ensure the quality of the data structure, I was in constant contact with business leaders from the United States, Brazil, Sweden and the Netherlands. 


For my second assignment, within the same company, I am part of the Global Annual Compensation Process as a compensation specialist. In this team I am responsible for analyzing the salary increases and bonuses of the entire organization. These analyzes are input for (financial) managers such as the CFO & CEO. I am also responsible for the quality of the process and the data structure. That is why I have contact with people managers over more than 35 countries and I have control over the associated bonus calculations. In addition, I support the manager Global Rewards & Director Rewards. These are very challenging assignments for me and that is exactly what I love!
