For more than 1 year have worked with Marieke on a large SSC implementation. Marieke learns quickly and puts the effort in to get things done when it's needed. She made the necessary link between her HR role and the other workstreams (e.g. Finance, Project Benefits Tracking) of the project. Marieke has a positive attitude and is easy to work with

What to say about Marieke Stoop? Apart of the Human qualities of her personality, extremely professional, listening to people and guiding them to the right direction. Marieke has an impressive talent to think fast, not only for solutions but also to combine flexibility in order to change direction when needed and keep track to achieve results as well. My experience with Marieke Stoop has started with one of the best job interviews I have ever had in my entire career. It was like meeting an old colleague with posture and respect; it is absolutely not easy to have someone in front of you with that capacity when you are applying for a job. Her ability to deliver in a very challenging, dynamic and sometimes hectic environment, Marieke can remain calm; make the time to share information in a direct and efficient way. Marieke is a natural relationship builder with a profound knowledge of Human needs and HR Processes.
Marieke is a detail-orientered manager who makes sure the job is well done. Accurate, on time, creative in problem solving and always with a big smile makes Marieke great to work with.

Marieke is that type of colleague you love working with: professional, smart, keen to share the best practices, knowledgeable in human resources technique and always positive! I have had the chance to work with many good colleagues and I must admit I am really impressed by Marieke’s positive attitude, the confidence she displays and the team work. She currently coaches me in driving and applying organization design plans for the operating company I am responsible of and she guides me on HOW to do it. I have no words to thank Marieke for the valuable help and for inspiring me day by day. A big Thank you Marieke and continue to stay the same!!! Amazing professional!

Marieke is a talented HR professional and has helped me to present myself better so I would be seen in LinkedIn and Twitter. She knew exactly what I wanted from a good listening ear and then apply it in my profile. Which took a very positive turn in my quest in the labor market. Also her articles which appear regularly on LinkedIn and Twitter have helped me in many ways.

It is a very great pleasure to work with Marieke. I have met Marieke during our assignment within Bristol-Myers Squibb were we are hired as HR Consultant a.i. for major HR projects. Projects such as implementing a benefit system, new intranet and outsourcing of HR activities to the Shared Service Center. Marieke is a very passionate person, who has a strong knowledge, organization skills and clear communication skills. I highly recommend Marieke to be your next HR Consultant!
Sylvia KlarenbeekInterim HR Project- & Process Manager
Marieke’s way of working is very structured and an important support for Transition projects on all HR related matters. The HR framework she created is very helpful and forms the base for any future Transitions. Marieke’s approach is very practical with a good background of the theory resulting in “on time in full” delivery of the items she is responsible for. In stressful situations and under time pressure she stays calm and delivers. Her approach towards the customer in the central project team but also to the operating companies in the different European countries is very professional and appreciated by “the customer”. Looking for solutions rather than issues.
CJ Van BoheemenGlobal Project Manager at HEINEKEN International
We have hired Marieke to consult us in the Netherlands and in the US in order to guarantee a smooth transition, with regard to all HR activities, which were necessary during a corporate takeover. She has proven to take initiatives, acts in the best way of interest for the company and also for its employees. After one year, Marieke has set up the HR department, resulting in a smooth transition of employees into the new company. Also new employment contracts were set up and new Employee Handbooks were implemented in Dutch and English. She has led our organization to a structured HR department, which include a solid administration and effective work processes. Employees are satisfied and managers have more time to do their daily routine.
