The Playmakers that’s us: an energetic, passionate and diverse team. Our lives crossed due to one common desire: make sure that employees can utilize their full potential.

The Founder

Jos van Snippenberg:

I have a background in the world of sales, training and consultancy. I dropped out the MEAO-education (a Dutch medieval school in commerce and administration). I used dedication and self-education to succeed my Bachelor Administration Degree and climbed the career ladder. I gained over thirty years of experience in performance and motivation development within companies like Kimberly Clark, Novartis, Coca Cola, Akzo Nobel and Heineken. This resulted in a new integral approach to deliver outstanding results from the essence of the company.

My ultimate driver is to make sure that every employee is given the chance to be meaningful in work. Creating a new workplace where everyone can daily contribute with a passion for the job, belief in oneself and the desire to grow.

Our story

 It all started in 2006 with a dream; create a world where every human being is passionate to add value in work.

Jos was inspired by the scientific validation that passion, self-efficacy and motivation to grow predict work effectiveness and satisfaction. Jos designed the Dantefactor Compass, and a new organisational model the “Playzone”.  The new foundation for a successful business operation. Jos initiated afterwards, in 2016 to set up The Playmakers. Together with Maaike Huisman they worked on the best testing and implementation of the model.

And on the 21st of November 2018, Jos took over the business and will present soon the new Playmaker team. With a sharpened focus to create the right conditions for growing companies to build themselves an energetic and inspiring working culture where everyone stays motivated and makes impact.
