Alieke van Dijken of Buurtzorg and Tamsin Fulton of Public World answers questions in this video about how the Dutch organisation works.
Hi, we are Happy
We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.
How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?
Tamsin Fulton is the Director of Public World, Buurtzorg’s partner in the UK, while Alieke Van Dijken has worked within Dutch organisation Buurtzorg as a Community Nurse in Utrecht, Holland, since 2009.
Tamsin and Alieke answered a lot of questions from the audience, as members of the audience were really interested in the idea and wanted to learn more!
In this short video, Tamsin and Alieke answer questions about how career progression works at Buurtzorg, and how they manage difficult situations when staff disagree, without a manager to intervene.

Next Conference: Happy Teams and the Buurtzorg Way
We are very excited to be partnering with Buurtzorg for this online event! If you haven't heard of them, Buurtzorg is a healthcare organisation in the Netherlands with over 15,000 staff that receives top marks from care inspectors and has a current patient satisfaction rating of 9.3. It's also been rated five times as one of the top places to work in the Netherlands. Why? Their staff is made up of hundreds of self-managing teams supported by regional coaches and a back office of just 50 people — with overheads accounting for just 8% of its total costs!
At this workshop from 10am to 4pm on 27th May 2021, you will hear from nurses and a coach working the Buurtzorg way in both Britain and the Netherlands. You will also be introduced to some of the techniques Happy uses for more effective staff involvement in decision-making.
