Talent Incubator

Are you doing what you love right now?
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

-Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple 

There is a Bright way.
Bright Society is a talent incubator, facilitating young Bright people to boost their early career. During a 3-year program these young academics, all with a PhD degree, discover their passion and talent. Through intensive guidance, facing challenges in a variety of companies they experience true inspiration. Since we do not believe in a lifetime contract our goal is to support you for 3 years, after which you are fully prepared for the next challenge. These years are the foundation of a Bright relationship, because we do believe in lifetime contact rather than a lifetime contract.

Brighties
Success in your early career is not measured by how far you make it on the path, but rather by which path you chose in the first place. As a “Brightie” we help you to discover your path. While you are in the driver’s seat, we boost your career. By working at multiple projects for several companies you will be confronted with different challenges. To guide you through these challenges Bright Society offers you professional support and a secure environment, endorsed by experienced people. Everything you need will be provided to lead you to the right track discovering your talent. Our social responsibility projects offer you the opportunity to benefit society. During Bright events we inspire each other by sharing valuable experiences and thoughts.

Bright seats
Bright Seats are literally the chairs, which are placed among companies, who benefit our Bright Society program. These partners indicate in this way that there is always a place reserved for young talent. Talented people need great managers. If you are young and talented you may join a company because of its charismatic leaders, its generous benefits, and its world-class training programs.  But how long you will stay and how productive you will be while you are there, will be determined by your relationship with your immediate supervisor. We know exactly the Bright spots. Places with great managers who know how to develop young talent. They find the right fit for you during your assignment, not the next rung on the ladder. Bright Seats are available and exactly positioned near those great managers within the leading companies.

Boek_firstdox200Do you want to know more about great leaders?
We suggest to read the work by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman – “First Break all the rules: What the world’s greatest managers do differently”. The book is based on extensive research done by Gallup on measuring workplace effectiveness and how some of the best managers in the world handle their teams. The extensiveness of empirical research to arrive at the findings is evident from the sheer numbers involved, over 105,000 employees across 2500 business units in different industries. Just use their “measuring stick” to find out if you have a great manager by answering the following questions:
