Using talents to make a social impact

For Eshuis Accountants and Advisors, the 17 Global Goals of the United Nations are not only a source of inspiration but also a benchmark for their policy choices. To stay focused and achieve great results, Eshuis uses the so-called BCorp-standard. BCorp is an international standard that helps organisations act as a “force of meaning”. According to research by, among others, the American Gallup, an important part of meaningful entrepreneurship is investing in the social value of a company, which is the talent of the employees. 

In short

  • Twente companies are desperate for talent; talent is the key to the economic success of Twente
  • Eshuis Accountants and Advisors have started a talent development process

Global Goal

Talent is of great importance...

We have started a development process within Eshuis, where we focus on the talents of individual employees, and actively discuss this with each other”, says Michel Schaepers, Eshuis’ chairman of the board. “This is an important step, especially in our sector, since we focused so hard on just KPI’s in the past. We took this step since we believe that if we invest in the talent of our employees, they will constantly work on their personal growth, be more involved and enthusiastic, and help our customers do business more successfully every day.”


“In the months of November and December 2019, all Eshuis employees followed talent development training. This training leads to great conversations about who has what talent, and how this talent can flourish”, Eshuis’ HR manager Jorien Derkman adds.

The focus on talent and talent development does not remain within the proverbial walls. Eshuis is actively looking for collaboration with education. An example is a collaboration with Saxion Conscious Business. A “learn-work-do-process” will start at the end of February for entrepreneurs in Twente that want to work with the BCorp-standard. In this process, students and teachers from Saxion actively work together to support entrepreneurs in their goals of gaining more ecological, social, and economic value. The talents of people and organisations are being bundled, and together they can take a step forward in achieving the Global Goals. For Twente, this makes an international collaboration between the United Nations and BCorp reality.

Eshuis Accountants and Advisors

Eshuis Accountants and Advisors like to work with facts and figures. Facts and figures, however, are not the goal, but a representation of the outcomes of (strategic) choices. Important to Eshuis is an insight into the financial, fiscal, and organisational performance. Eshuis Accountants and Advisors are a sponsor of de Rode Loper 2020, and therefore support the Global Goals in that way, too.
