GITP is a top 3 player in the field of human resources development in The Netherlands. Established in 1947 by two major universities we have been working to improve and develop organizations and their employees and to help them reach their goals. With a turnover of € 40,- million and 300+ employees GITP is one of the bigger organizations in its field.
Our three main business lines are: psychological assessment, management training and development and training and consultancy for works councils. With our roots firmly in science we have our own R&D department and links with several universities. Smaller business lines include management consultancy, interim management and corporate governance. GITP has offices in Belgium and a daughter company in Paris, Obifive.
Our core values are: socially responsible, innovative, of economic value and rooted in science. In our work we look for the highest professional standard.
GITP is linked to consultingeuropa through the business line for works councils, in particular the consultancy group for works councils. In total there are around thirty employees dealing with works councils. Of those thirty circa 20 work as a full time trainer, supported by a number freelance trainers. Ten people are involved with consultancy supporting their clients in all aspects of mergers and take overs, restructurings and human resources issues (including labor law, HR- policies and HR-systems)
GITP’s involvement with works councils started a few decades ago through the training of works councils in knowledge of labour law, of organizations and in the skills necessary for participation in a council. Today we are number three in the Dutch market. The consultancy for works councils started ten years ago and has grown into a major player in that market too.
Our clients usually are the bigger companies in the Netherlands many of which are a subsidiary of a foreign mother (including some of France’s major companies).
