Our story

Heroyam was founded in early 2022 with the aim of helping Ukrainian refugees who have come to the Netherlands find a job. Over the past year, Heroyam has helped hundreds of people fleeing Ukraine to find a job in the Netherlands. Thus Heroyam’s mission was born: to help all refugees and status holders find work in a humane way. At Heroyam, we donate 100% of our profits to charities. This ensures that we invest as much money back as possible in the development of our flex workers.

Making a difference through social entrepreneurship: How Heroyam puts people before profit

At Heroyam, social entrepreneurship is at the core of our company. We strongly believe that making a positive impact on society should be an integral part of doing business. That’s why we donate 100% of our profits to good causes, and all of our temporary workers can vote on where the money goes. This not only helps us give back to the community but also ensures that we invest in our workers’ growth and development. We have set up the company in a way where making a profit is not the sole goal. Instead, we strive to contribute to society while investing in our company and workers to ensure sustainable growth.

At Heroyam, giving back to the community is at the core of our belief and we apply this by empowering our employees and by donating all our profits to charities. Here's how we do it:

  1. Our flex workers suggest charities they believe in.
  2. We carefully review and verify each charity to ensure it meets our standards and requirements.
  3. We create a shortlist of five charities that meet our requirements.
  4. We send out a survey to all of our workers asking them to vote on which charity they believe we should support.
  5. At the end of each quarter, we tally up the votes and donate our profits to the charity with the most votes.

Making a difference: Our latest donations

At Heroyam, we are committed to social entrepreneurship and giving back to society. Our latest donation went to 'Children of Heroes,' an organization that supports orphaned children in Ukraine affected by the war with Russia. We believe in using our profits to make a positive impact and we are proud to support causes that make a difference in people's lives.

Our journey so far

From heroes to hope: The origin story of Heroyam

Heroyam was founded with the mission to help Ukrainian refugees in The Netherlands find work. Today, we have expanded our services to help all refugees and status holders in The Netherlands find work. The name Heroyam derives from the Ukrainian slogan ‘heroyam slava!’, meaning ‘glory to the heroes’. This name represents our commitment to recognizing the heroic journeys of refugees and status holders, and empowering them through meaningful employment opportunities.
