Prinsen Berning

From People scan to People plan

Back in 2018, we learned about the Prinsen Berning company. An organization consisting of three companies with a long history and together specializing in producing high-quality (instant) food products with a focus on health. And yes, you should think about powders, bars and sports drinks. Collaboratively seeking further growth.

This company is a good fit for Irene, with her background at FrieslandCampina and knowledge of food industry. In 2021, for example, she assisted the company’s HR Manager in drafting the HR strategy for the Helmond production site.

The challenge

It was Prinsen Berning’s HR manager, Merlin Kok, who requested support from Bunchmark. She is an experienced HR Manager and has been with the company for quite some time. She needed an outside view. Besides, in her busy job, it was hard to find the time to put those insights and experience from her mind on paper.

The approach

Through a series of interviews, desk research of all relevant documents and a brainstorm with the MT, we identified the impact of the company’s growth strategy on the people and the organization. With our outside perspective and experience at other organization, we have listed several topics where HR can make a difference. Together with Prinsen Berning’s HR Manager, we translated these findings into an intergral HR plan with concrete proposals. This gave Merlin a solid foundation on which to establish and roll out HR priorities.

"Bunchmark did a great job helping us turn our ideas and plans into a coherent People Plan. Irene asked the right questions and managed to challenge us at points.
By involving us closely throughout the process and brainstorming with us, it really did become our plan."
