Working at TMC: independence, excitement and stability!

augustus 31, 2016

The biggest advantage of working at TMC versus working as a freelancer? TMC Employeneur John van Rooy doesn’t need much time to think of an answer: ‘At TMC, you still have a lot of independence, but there’s a whole team of inspiring colleagues behind you, a lot of knowledge and experience you can benefit from. It’s so much easier to improve yourself, to find solutions you couldn’t have thought of just by yourself – and you can help your colleagues in the same way, too.’

Finding solutions while expanding networks

“The key to improving is to make problems smaller, and I mean that literally. When, for example a customer has a complaint, the human tendency is to try and solve the whole problem at once. But most often, that’s not the fastest way to help a customer. When you split the big problem into little problems, then maybe some of those small problems are easy to fix, and thus you can help the customer very quickly. And more often than not, when all the little problems are solved, the big problem isn’t so big anymore. It sounds really simplistic, but it works, and your customer satisfaction rises.”
