VoorDeThuiswerkers.nl | A hotel room as solution for the work from home challenge


  • Initiatiefnemer Seffie Treistman op een werkplek in Holliday Inn Express City Hall Amsterdam

Inspiration from the Netherlands where two entrepreneurial freelancers offer a solution for those who can no longer cope with the challenge combining working with their family at home as well during the corona virus crisis. ‘VoorDeThuiswerkers.nl’ (which can be translated at ForThe PeopleWorkingFromHome) is an initiative of Olivier Kruger and Seffie Treistman, who hope to contribute to lower the pressure at home by providing a quiet workplace and helping hotels generate revenue so that their employees can keep their jobs.

On the second of April we already wrote about Hotel Kom in Maartensdijk (The Netherlands), which had taken a similar initiative as an individual hotel. In response to the article we understood that other hotels were also providing workspace in their own surroundings. VoorDeThuiswerkers.nl is a platform to make these addresses more accessible for those who find working from home too much a challenge! And for hotels, every little bit can help in these harsh corona times ……

VoorDeThuiswerkers.nl | New platform helps home workers and hotels through the corona crisis

Many people are working from home due to the corona crisis. With children playing, crying babies and partners making phone calls, this is sometimes quite a challenge. At the same time, many hotel rooms are empty due to the disappearance of tourism. Olivier Kruger and Seffie Treistman both want to help solve problems with VoorDeThuiswerkers.nl. This platform offers home workers hotel rooms in which they can work quietly and so it helps to relieve the pressure on the home situation.

As a result of the corona crisis, hundreds of hotels are vacant, ten thousand employees are at home and the hotels are struggling with financial problems. The workplace hotel rooms can be rented from 35 euros per day or 400 euros per month. In the rooms are a desk, chair and reliable WiFi available and of course you can use the toilet. The rooms are also cleaned after every visit to prevent contamination.
