ORANJEGROEP considers that the responsible social entrepreneurship (ASO) is important. We’ve provided employment services to a number of over 2500 CRAFTERS specialized in construction and the petrochemical industry.

As agents of the best CRAFTERS we are directly involved in supplying experts for these fields. We offer professionalism without borders. Many of our CRAFTERS are seconded from East Europe and South Europe. This involves specific social risks. ORANJEGROEP’s ASO policy is about creating a healthy and safe living and working environment for our CRAFTERS.

ORANJEGROEP’s ASO policy has three main benchmarks:

  • 1. Working conditions
  • 2. Living environment 
  • 3. Social engagement

The proper organization and management of the working conditions and living environments of our employees is always a top priority.


De 'Harde Leerschool'is an organization established and financed by ORANJEGROEP for (young) adults with little opportunities, being somewhat distanced from the labour market. During the retraining process, besides rugby practice, they attend courses and train for construction & technology works. Additionally, they receive basic education in order to increase their chances on the labour market and become CRAFTERS. We assign the best craftsmen to the most complex projects. The School of Crafts was created in order to help every student get a job to one of ORANJEGROEP’s partners. More about De Harde School of Crafts.

We go where the opportunities are and cross borders to grab them.
