The Erasmus University Medical Center based in Rotterdam, Netherlands, affiliated with Erasmus University and home to its faculty of medicine, is the “largest and one of the most authoritative scientific University Medical Centers in Europe.” Always on the forefront of innovation, Erasmus MC deeply feels that HR plays a big role in that. By improving the HR activities, employee satisfaction, retention and sustainable employability can be enhanced.
