The shortage of affordable housing has long been one of the biggest political and social challenges. Housing corporations play an important role in this: their service is crucial for a large number of people in the Netherlands. In addition to building and renovating homes to create affordable and available living space, housing corporations must also focus specifically on elements such as sustainability and viability. There is tension between the task of housing corporations and the means available. Additionally, there are different stakeholders with diverse interests: a housing corporation must strike a balance between the interests of tenants, the government, and its own desire to innovate and offer increasingly higher quality. It is precisely this type of dilemma that makes a sector interesting to Whyz.
As soon as someone starts renting via a housing corporation, their ‘compulsory’ customer journey starts. Whyz understands social housing and knows the different interests at play. Whether it concerns social issues, finances, or the rights and obligations of tenants: we unite the integral interplay between these elements with the wishes of our client. In doing so, we focus on getting to know the vision and mission of every unique housing corporation and its tenants to find the right candidate for a supervisory, administrative or board /management role. We pay particular attention to the impact that technological innovations like digitisation and robotisation have on the real estate sector.
