PROFESSIONAL & BUSINESS SERVICES
In the current economic circumstances, companies active within Professional & Business Services are confronted with rapidly changing market conditions and, more than ever, with the need for innovation. The economic climate, political stability and confidence are key indicators of the willingness of business leaders and companies to invest and hire professional or business service providers. Digitization challenges organizations in this sector to rethink and reconsider strategic
and operational topics.
Professional & Business Services is one of the main economic sectors in the “BV Nederland”. The sector is most versatile, growing rapidly and contributes
up to about 20% to the Dutch economy.
It is not always easy to differentiate in this sector. Professional Services includes e.g. accountants, legal service providers, advertising agencies, IT consultancies, organizational and strategy consultants. Business Services includes catering companies, facility service providers, employment and deployment agencies,
childcare, office support centers and (business) Travel & MICE organizations etc.
Digitization challenges organizations in this sector to rethink and reconsider strategic and operational topics such as the reason and right to exist, concept of value creation, partner models, distribution strategy and/or the financial, operational and commercial basis. This creates new opportunities, forces these organizations to think about opportunities for growth and making strategic choices. For Professional & Business Services, the challenge remains to be sufficiently distinctive.
Current issues are:
Changing competitive environment: External, new market parties as a result of technological developments and innovation;
The "Digital Transformation" within knowledge-intensive services. Such as with organizational consultancy firms, accountants, specialized employment agencies/temporary staff and engineers;
The growth of the sector also creates demand for top professionals and senior management. The tense labour market within Professional & Business Services slows down and/or limits the expansion of companies in this sector;
Consolidation in various sectors such as accountancy, insurance intermediaries and childcare.;
An opaque and fragmented service offer due to "the new economy".
The growth of the sector also creates demand for top professionals and senior management.
