Strukton Worksphere is a proud participant in the sixth edition of the JINC Boss of Tomorrow programme. On 23 January 2020, CEO Evert Lemmen will give up his chair to a preparatory secondary vocational education (VMBO) student.

Our company forms part of a large group: a total of 317 ‘bosses’ in the Netherlands are participating in this event. With the Boss of Tomorrow programme, Strukton Worksphere and JINC, a non-profit organisation that fights unequal opportunities among youth, aim to focus attention on the fact that a successful career is not a given for everyone. People born in an environment with a great deal of poverty and few role models have less of a chance of making it as far as their peers from richer neighbourhoods. No matter how intelligent and talented he or she might be.

Boss of Tomorrow Agenda

Our young boss can expect to spend an exciting day on the 23rd. He will be picked up from school by the CEO and will drive with him to one of the largest, most special projects we are currently constructing: the sustainable development of the new building for the Netherlands National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection (RIVM) and the Dutch Medicines Evaluation Board (CBG) in Utrecht. Here he will be given a tour of the construction site. After this, the boss of today and the boss of tomorrow will proceed to Strukton’s head office. Here, Hamza is allowed to contribute his ideas about how the organisation can interest more youth in engineering. He will be discussing this with various colleagues in a meeting! The day ends with a conference for the bosses of today and tomorrow in Amsterdam.
Evert Lemmen is looking forward to it. ‘It is important for young people to realise that, aside from knowledge, drive and perseverance are just as important for reaching your goals in life. I would like them to be inspired by the wonderful sector in which we operate and to show them the tremendous opportunities that are open to them here.’

JINC Boss of Tomorrow is being held for the sixth time this year. Children and bosses from Amsterdam, Arnhem, Breda, Flevoland, Groningen, Haaglanden, Kennemerland, Leeuwarden, Leiden, Oost-Brabant, Rotterdam-Rijnmond, Tilburg, Utrecht, Zaanstad and Zuid-Limburg are participating in this event.
