Puck Bossert took up a new challenge in August 2013 and became Director of Human Resources at MN, pension administrator and assett management organization, in the Hague. She leads a team of 30 HR professionals and adds with her team HR expertise to an organization of about 1200 employees. Before that she built up a wealth of HR and Communications experience in the international healthcare environment (Abbott/Abbvie, Solvay Pharmaceuticals). As HR Director she has become specialized in change management and showed a hands-on mentality during a major restructuring operation (laying off 500 people: half of the workforce). She knows how to deal with tough negotiations both with Works Councils, Trade Unions and in Collective Bargaining Agreements. By initiating innovative communication tools she knows how to keep employees engaged and motivated.
As Communications Director she has a proven track record in getting the right messages across to external audiences especially when a company’s reputation is endangered by media attacks. She gained ample experience in crisis communication e.g. with product recalls and animal activists. She knows how to create positive media coverage for an organization, its projects and products.
She is an exceptional manager with energy and drive. In the past few years she has also taken on an additional responsibility as Governmental Affairs Director.
