Employment contract

Every employee starts at Elfsquad with an employment contract of six months. In case of proper functioning, this employment contract will be converted into an employment contract for an indefinite period of time. Many general terms and conditions of employment are described in the contract, as well as individual agreements about salary, for example.

If you want to leave the organization, one must notify your manager in form writing and you have a one-month notice period, commencing on the first day of the next month after the cancellation date.

Of course, you then hand in the company’s resources that have been provided to you.

Working hours

At Elfsquad a standard workweek is 40-hours with a work shift of 8 hours per day. If you want to work less, then you should discuss this with your manager. At Elfsquad we work with flexible working hours. This flexibility in working hours ranges from 06:30 till 18:30. Within this time frame you are expected to fulfill your 8 hour shift.

Your break is within your own time and is at least one hour per day. We think it is important for the team feeling to have lunch together at noon. We do this from 12:00 to 12:30. Nonetheless, we think it’s also important that you can focus on your work, therefore you can spread the other half hour of free time over the rest of the day, according to your own needs.

Overtime
Overtime is sometimes necessary and if you can write those hours, it’s time for time. The first half hour is not considered as overtime. Compensation for hours that fall within the day window, but are more than 8.5 hours, is 100%. Outside of the day window and on Saturdays it is 125% and on Sundays and public holidays it is 150%.

For instance:
You start at 8:30 and with the break you would go home at 17:30. You still have to finish something and it will be 6:00 PM. Then you don’t count this as overtime. If you work until 18:30 then you are entitled to count this as half an hour overtime.

Travel time
Traveling for a business meeting, for example with a customer, is working time, if you first went to the office. If you drive directly from your home to a customer, the first hour there and the last hour back is your own time (commuting). If the one-way journey takes longer than an hour, then this is considered working time. However, This rule does not apply if you drive to a hotel the day before the appointment. That’s your own time. For the journey back, the last hour is your own time and the rest is working time. Travel time compensation is 100% time for time and no overtime surcharges apply.

Example:
You have to be at a client by 9am and it’s a 3 hour drive. From 6 to 7 a.m. is your own time (home-work) and from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. is considered working time. If you leave the customer at the end of the day and drive home and again it is a 3 hour drive, then 2 hours of this is, is working time and 1 hour private time (commuting). If the number of hours worked exceeds 8.5, it is overtime and this is 100% time for time.

Absenteeism

If you are unable to work, report this to your manager as soon as possible. They will report you sick to the Occupational Health and Safety Service. Once recovered, one is expected to report to this to their manager as soon as possible. They must also pass this on to the Arbodienst.

The health and safety service that Elfsquad has selected for you is called Verzuimteam. In the event of a long-term illness, they will be notified and the company doctor will contact you in consultation. This is because we have to comply with the Gatekeeper Act in the event of long-term illness.

Regulations on this can be found here.

Holiday

Social Media

Elfsquad likes to be in the spotlight. And we appreciate your help with that. Just pay attention to your language. Also, if you no longer feel comfortable with us, let your manager know personally and do not express it via social media channels. This can have serious consequences for our organization, therefore such actions will have legitimate consequences.

Salary

The salaries will be paid no later than the 25th of the following month paid monthly and the payment includes 8% holiday pay.

When you start at Elfsquad, we make agreements about your salary. After the first employment contract of 6 months, if your employment contract is converted into an employment contract for an indefinite period, we will do it again. You will then participate in the regular assessment rounds and make individual agreements about your salary growth.

Bonus

Elfsquad has a generous bonus scheme for everyone, because those who work hard should be rewarded! The goals to be achieved are set in January each year.

The scheme is AxBxCx 10% gross annual salary.
A= % achieved business goals
B= % achieved team goals
C= % achieved individual goals

Payment will be made once a year.

Weighting:
50% business target
15% team target
35% individual target

Example calculation bonus:
2800> 33.600 per year (excl. holiday pay) x 10% max. bonus is € 3360,00
100% bd = 50%, 90% td = 13.5% , 100% ID= 35%, = bonus 98,5% > €3309,60

In addition to the performance salary, a bonus scheme also applies to Sales. The objectives will be split into a part that applies to the performance-related salary and a part that applies to the bonus.

The bonus is calculated on that year’s paid gross annual salary. If you start during the year, the individual target will only be counted if targets have been set. If this is not the case, then this component is dropped for bonus calculation.

Training

Continuous development is important to us at Elfsquad, that’s why you receive a € 1000,- personal development budget every calendar year that you can spend on yourself to learn new skills and hone existing ones.  

If you want to follow a course that helps you to do your work at Elfsquad even better or helps you improve your abilities that simultaneously contribute to your own development as well as Elfsquad’s, then go see your manager and discuss your idea right away. 9 times out of 10 you will receive permission to use your budget and to develop further. The following rules apply: 

  • If your intended education costs more than your personal budget, your idea will be discussed in the leadership team (LT). 
  • The full training costs will be reimbursed (books, tuition fees, exam fees, etc.), but a refund scheme does apply if you leave Elfsquad within 3 years after completing your training. And if you stop early, without a valid reason, you will have to pay the full amount back. 
  • The same rule applies to travel costs to a training institute as to commuting. 
  • There is no daily allowance 
  • The time for the physical lessons (online or at a location) is working time (100%), possibly homework time or self-study time not. No overtime allowance can be claimed if the study is followed in the evenings or weekends. 

Repayment arrangement:
If an Elfsquad employee decides to leave the organization within 3 years after completing the study paid by Elfsquad, a repayment arrangement applies. Are you leaving: 

  • if your study has not yet been completed, you must repay 100% of the tuition fee 
  • within one year after completing the study, you must repay 75% of the tuition fee 
  • within 2 years after completing the study, you must repay 50% of the tuition fee
