Every year Management Team (MT) conducts a wide-scale survey among its readers to find the best company in the Netherlands. The survey is published as the MT100, and this year it consists of the best service providers in the country. Ahrend topped both the overall list as well as the Office furniture category.
‘Naturally we are very proud that Ahrend took the number one spot this year in the MT100,’ said Robin Goemans, Managing Director of Ahrend. ‘First and foremost, we would like to thank our customers, partners and staff for this recognition. In the last few years Ahrend has transitioned from solely manufacturing furniture to an all-in workplace furnisher. Our customers have been very positive about this change, as it demonstrates that we are actively working together with them. The fact that we are in pole position on the MT100, thanks in part to the high “recommend” score from respondents, moreover confirms that we are on the right path. It is now up to us to continue on this route and create even more workspaces that are based on the very latest insights and innovations.’
This year the MT100 survey was conducted by Inscope Consulting, a division of Erasmus University Rotterdam. Before the survey was launched MT identified 22 different categories that make up common purchases, including consultancy services as well as facilities services such as cleaning, office furnishing and security. Respondents were first asked for which of these areas they had a say or part-say, and if they confirmed that they were responsible for a given area they were presented with a list and asked which service providers they would recommend to other managers. Three fields were also left blank where they could list companies not included on the lists. Respondents could also state whether they considered a company to be in first place or part of their top three. The full results of the survey can be found here.
