Rooted in local communities
Although Arriva is a major pan-European group, we’re still a local company at heart in the markets in which we operate.
Arriva Netherlands is now on step one of the TNO Social Enterprise Performance Ladder, a nationally recognised measurement of an employer’s efforts towards social responsibility and inclusiveness, and has also received a Top Employer certification.
Arriva Netherlands employs 231 disadvantaged people who’d experienced various barriers to work. This includes 75 people hired in 2018 to ‘learn and work’ on a vocational scheme (BBL) to qualify as bus drivers in just one year.
The focus isn’t just on getting people back into work, but also providing ongoing support to help them stay in work.
