Who: Cultural Chemistry

What: For Cultural Chemistry it’s all about efficiency. Mirjam IJtsma, launched Cultural Chemistry in 2011 with the desire to help businesses run a more positive and dynamic work place. Part of Cultural Chemistry’s success depends on its sustainable in-office environment as well as passion for working to help the natural environment.

Originally from the Netherlands, where environmental responsibility is a crucial community pillar, IJtsma brings her country’s environmental concerns to the work place, educating both her employees and her clients on the value of executing a sustainable company culture. This includes not wasting resources, building green teams and integrating sustainability and responsible practices to make a company more successful, resourceful and more desirable to work for.

IJtsma’s unique services mimic what a traditional human resources department might be tasked with, but a fraction of the cost. The result is an affordable, unique, dynamic look into your company’s most complex inner workings, and the strategies and solutions that can help take it to the next level.
