We are thrilled to announce that Kilpatrick won the Panda d’Oro ‘Best Place to Work Award’ at the 12th edition of the prestigious Panda Awards Gala in Shanghai on June 10, 2023. This award recognizes our people-centred culture and commitment to promoting a healthy work-life balance. 


The Panda d’Oro Gala Awards, organised by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce, celebrates the efficiency and best practices of Italian and Chinese companies with investments and a meaningful presence in each other’s countries.


Jaap Hoekstra, CEO of Kilpatrick “We firmly believe that if you have things well managed within your own organisation, you can also apply the same principles to your clients. That is why we not only provide quality personnel to our clients, but we also take good care of our own employees and have excellent staff within our own organisation.”

Our culture encourages authenticity, idea-sharing, responsibility, and collaboration as one global team. This has resulted in a sustainable team with a participative management approach and minimal downtime or absence.
