Meet the team of Green Orange! Who are our digital heroes and what are their interests? With these series of interviews we put our employees in the spotlight! Let’s Go!

Introduce yourself:
I'm Bas Knikhuis, 27 years old and I live in Oldenzaal. During my college days, I lived in Groningen. First I completed the study Business Administration and then a master in Human Resource Management. In my free time I am busy with playing sports. I find my relax moments in football, tennis, fitness and squash. Besides that I really enjoy binge watching series or going out with my friends. I work for the GO holding as an HR Business Partner

How did you end up at Green Orange and WePublish?
During my study Business Administration, I graduated at WePublish. This ended up great from both sides, I was able to show up during the holidays ;) After I finished my master, I worked at a law firm in Zwolle, but my heart was still at GO/WP. When I got the opportunity to get back to work at GO, I was very happy. Also because I got a role that perfectly matched my study.

What are your work activities?
I deal with HR policy, talent development and training programs, recruitment and selection, labor market communication and being a good employer.


What do you like most about your work?
I really enjoy thinking along and giving advice on how we can do it. I also think it is important to connect with colleagues, to know what is going on and be able to help if necessary. Switching fast between the different companies of the holding, and the variety in my work, is what I really like :)

What makes working at Green Orange and WePublish so much fun?
A lot of attention and effort is put into the GO-culture, the greatest office outings and colleagues. It gives you the opportunity to connect with your colleagues besides work.

Any other hobbies?
I really like playing soccer, tennis, squash and travelling. I think Asia is a beautiful part of the world and I try to visit a different country every summer. A beautiful mix between sun, sea, beach and a great opportunity to go hiking in the jungle, that gives me the ultimate holiday feeling.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?
