Intercultural Communication, New Residents, and The Netherlands


We are devoted to helping people from different cultural backgrounds approach each other with interest, understanding and respect—adding to their mutual benefit. In collaboration with local municipalities we provide training for newcomers to allow a smooth integration into the Dutch labour market, as well as training, coaching and consulting services for government agents and employers who work with newcomers.

The Netherlands and other EU member states have agreed to accommodate more asylum seekers. With the increase of new residents in Dutch society, government-officials, employers and employees may encounter unfamiliar cultural and social norms—which our training can help you understand. Communication can be complicated by implicit assumptions from both sides and influenced by cultural backgrounds—and it may cause misunderstandings, frustration and even conflict. That’s why at KIT Intercultural Professionals, we believe passionately in the value of diversity and have programmes to help individuals and organisations gain the most out of intercultural opportunities.
