From Personal Blog to HR Resource

What started as a modest personal blog in 2017, sharing insights about the digital employee experience and a simple spreadsheet of local HR innovations, has evolved into a comprehensive knowledge hub and database that has become too valuable not to share. Today, stands as a testament to the power of HR technology, marketing, and innovation, and it’s my gift to the community that has supported and embraced me over the years.

The Journey

Back in 2017, driven by a passion for HR technology and innovation, I began documenting my experiences and observations on a personal blog. I wanted to explore and share the digital transformation journey within HR, focusing on how technology could enhance the employee experience. Alongside the blog, I maintained a spreadsheet that cataloged local HR innovations, which gradually grew as I discovered more solutions.


As I navigated the world of HR technology, marketing, and innovation, the blog gained traction and the spreadsheet evolved into a detailed database. Over the years, my work attracted an audience of HR professionals, freelancers, and startups who shared my enthusiasm for HR innovation.

A New Chapter

After a series of personal and professional setbacks, I have decided to cancel all non-digital services related to, take a step back and be open to new challenges.

However, I couldn't let this platform, which has become a valuable resource for so many, fade away. It is with pride and a sense of fulfillment that I can now leave as a legacy for the HR community in the BeNeLux and beyond. Now it is up to the collective to continue centralizing information, exchanging ideas and collaborating on HR innovation, and for companies to keep pioneering HR. Either way, is your go-to-site to start your digital HR adventure for sure.
