A first-hand experience of Nmbrs’ exchange programme in Lisbon
Thijmen Alkema, Product Owner (PO) for three squads at Nmbrs’ Amsterdam office, recently spent four months living and working in Lisbon on a Nmbrs exchange programme. The programme has been specially created for eligible full time employees and it is aimed at improving the lines of communication between the Amsterdam and Lisbon offices. Here, Thijmen explains why he jumped at the opportunity to do the exchange, what he expected from the experience and his main take-aways. He even throws in a few do’s and don’ts for anyone considering following his example, which he strongly recommends by the way.

We recently celebrated the recruitment of our 100th employee. So we think that now’s the time to take a good look at our recruitment process and get to understand the journey that candidates make, from that very first moment that they became interested in Nmbrs.
Nobody doubts that the hiring process is an essential part of maintaining an organisation’s value and fuelling its sustainable growth. An amazing hire will have an extraordinary impact on the organisation, while a bad one can have negative repercussions for many of its variables. But what we must also remember is that it’s not easy for candidates either. In selecting a new employer they too will be taking a substantial risk and we fully appreciate their position. So, to minimise possible disappointment, it’s vital that both sides share the same mindset.
Let’s look a little closer at why we care so much about the recruitment process.

Nmbrs is always looking for new ways to improve. To boost productivity, we have decided to implement Redgate's DLM tools. These tools allow Nmbrs to manage processes involved in the application and database lifecycle more efficiently. Previously it could take up to one day to update a database, now it can be done within several minutes. The time Nmbrs is now saving on weekly database updates can be used to develop new features. So we can help you even better!
The new integration that recently was realized between Nmbrs and XPS Logic makes payroll very easy. Now it is possible to send name, address and contact details of new and current employees from XPS Logic to Nmbrs, and vice versa. Besides payroll, it is also possible to send the recorded leave in XPS Logic to Nmbrs.
Organizations prefer to choose the best cloud applications for their operational processes. For a good conduct of business the integration of all the various applications on the HR and payroll application is indispensable. Nmbrs, provider of payroll and HR software from the cloud, is a strong advocate of such a 'best-of-breed' approach and supports other providers in building the correct connections.
Employees can use their Declaree smartphone app to put their expense forms together digitally. With this they put all their receipts, hours and other expenses together. After approval the approved expense reports will be put into Nmbrs® automatically, at the right employee and in the right period.
