The ambition and eagerness to grow a Belgian staffing company beyond its borders and activities, led to the birth of House of HR in 2012.
Founded by Conny Vandendriessche and Philip Cracco in 1995, in Roeselare (Flanders, Belgium), the founding PowerHouse Accent Jobs has secured an unparalleled staffing market in Belgium, thanks to an original business concept of ‘temp to perm’, combining the quality of an executive search firm with the flexibility of temporary contracts.
The name ‘Accent Jobs’ comes from the idea that the name should start with the first letter of the alphabet ‘A’ so that their name would always pop-up first.
Later came the ambition to grow beyond the Belgian borders and in other work specializations. This led to the foundation of House of HR in 2012 as a holding structure above Accent Jobs and other companies to join the HR group. It is the start of a fast and dynamic growth story.
Establishment of House of HR with Naxicap entering the group as a majority shareholder with 30%.
Accent Jobs, now part of House of HR, already counts 227 offices in Belgium and the Netherlands, with some 700 employees.
