Ciett announces new board at the World Employment Conference

The new board will oversee the organisation until 2017.

Annemarie Muntz, new Ciett president, commented, “We see a new world of work emerging, at an ever-increasing pace, and it is up to us to decide how to embrace this change. The PrES industry has a crucial role to play for both companies and people and there is plenty of research to prove the positive impact of the contingent workforce on the labour market and throughout the economy. As President of Ciett, I will work to spread these positive messages to those that either don’t know or refuse to believe it. It is up to the industry, and those working in it, to be proud of giving people employment and giving business a sustainable future. The election of this new board sends a powerful signal to the world that Ciett is ready to start implementing the new Ciett strategy, getting Ciett and its members to the next level in order to drive sustainable businesses and enhance growth of our industry.”

The composition of the Ciett Board aims at striking a balance between the diversity of Ciett members. It consists of representatives from across the globe, from both corporate members and regional representatives. The executive committee of the Board now comprises

Annemarie Muntz, Randstad, Ciett president

Hans Leentjes, ManpowerGroup, Ciett vice-president

Kevin Green, REC, officer/vice president chair of the National Federations Committee

Pam Berklich, Kelly Services, officer/vice president chair of the  Corporate Members Committee

Mark de Smedt, Adecco, officer/vice president

Aart van der Gaag, ABU, quality standards and compliance officer

Herwig Muyldermans, Federgon, will remain in his position of treasurer

Denis Pennel, Ciett managing director, commented, “The election of a new board is an exciting time for Ciett. Private employment agencies have real, on-the-ground experience that if properly utilised can help to create more efficient labour markets in times of high volatility. Our industry helps companies adapt to these changes, while also playing a pivotal role implementing active labour market policies and finding market-based solutions that may take time to evolve otherwise. Governments can leverage this knowledge and partner with the private employment industry to optimise labour regulations, increase market integration and encourage labour market participation. We look forward to working with the new board to continue this good work.”

In 2012, the PrES industry supported 36 million people in their careers, including helping 12.9 million people find decent work, and upskilling 8.3 million people. Businesses are operating in volatile environments, with unpredictable economic growth and dynamic labour markets. The PrES industry provides services that help these companies find their way through the HR maze to be competitive
