About us

Care about people

Our first core value is caring about people. The work we do is ultimately focused on people. In this work you will, in our opinion, have to have a human approach. We are proud to be able to play such an important role in the housing of this group of hard-working people who The Netherlands can use so well. In addition, our philosophy “to care about people” is also found daily in how we interact internally and externally. So you are not only a colleague at Inka during working hours, if you have a problem then we all have that problem. If there is a problem with a house outside of working hours, we will also work together to resolve this.

Believe in solutions

Who works at Inka, does business with Inka or is a supplier to Inka will be able to confirm that we believe in solutions. Thinking well and quietly ensures that a win-win situation arises in nine out of ten cases. Believing in solutions is believing that everything will eventually work out. This core value is also closely linked to the first core value of ”caring for people”. When you care about something, you are prepared to think further and make more effort, because the will for this is strongly present. And when you care about people, they will also care about you and change the situation of working with each other. Ultimately, working with each other brings us further.

Also in 100 years

With our third core value Inka believes that she still has a right to exist in 100 years. Our focus is therefore mainly on the long term. Caring about people and believing in solutions are crucial in this. Together we will come further than alone. By working together with colleagues, customers, homeowners, other suppliers and competing colleagues, goals will be achieved that initially seem out of reach. In addition, continuously changing markets and unforeseen circumstances will require a good dose of solution-oriented thinking. There is no doubt about it that we have this.

About us

Our strength lies in our three core values; care about people, believe in solutions, also in 100 years. These three core values indicate why we do what we do. What we do is the professional housing of foreign employees who stay here temporarily. We realize this throughout the Netherlands. By professional housing we mean comfortable and safe living space at a competitive price and under good management.

As a national organization, we have divided the country into four regions. Each region has a Regional Coordinator (RC), Technical Service (TD) and Cleaning. This team ensures that problems are resolved quickly and that homes are properly managed. In addition, a member of management also acts as a mentor and sparring partner of the region. Our Warehouse & Logistics and Handymen ensure that homes are neatly decorated, refurbished and emptied again.

We believe it is important to continue developing our inventory and working methods. Feedback and criticism is crucial for this. This way we can continue to meet the wishes and expectations of tomorrow.

Our clients mainly consist of temporary employment agencies that place foreign employees that are requested by companies. The nationality of these employees varies enormously. They come from England, Germany, India, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal and Slovakia.

History

Inka Housing B.V. was founded by Karel Erfmann in 2001.  The housing of people, mainly from outside the Netherlands, started at KLM. From KLM there was the question whether there could be provision for accommodation for its English employees. They were at that time housed in a Hotel.

To help KLM, a house was hired and rented out per room. The reason why KLM did not rent a house itself was because the employees had a flexible contract which could be canceled weekly. It was therefore too risky for them and we took this risk and we still take it away. From that moment on we started to specialize in housing of foreign workers in particular.

Quality mark and interest group

Our complete housing range at least complies with the SNF standards of Stichting Normering Flexwonen. The hallmark for housing a foreign employee in the right way. We are also an active member within the Vereniging Huisvesters Arbeidsmigranten (VHA). This association has been established with the aim of promoting the interests of the housing companies of labor migrants.
