About Galatea

If you believe, you can achieve! The Galatea-effect originates from a story in ancient Greek mythology. The Galatea Effect is one of self-efficacy: It suggests that when we believe in our abilities to achieve a goal, the more likely we’ll be to achieve it. It is therefore important in leadership and performance improvement. As a combined HR/Employee law practice we believe in the potential of our clients and their will to succeed. Don’t let HR or Legal issues get in the way and let’s discuss together what it takes to realize your ambitions.

Galatea originated from the idea that directors and entrepreneurs have a need for an independent and trusted sparring partner alongside ongoing legal support for their teams. In 2011, we started of-counseling clients that reflected this need.

Galatea is driven by HR and Legal professionals with more than 25 years of experience in their respective fields of expertise. Having worked in an international environment both inhouse and as an outside counsel of multinational companies they have the experience to really add value to your business.

Our team

Hans Moltmaker is a legal professional with more than 25 years of experience and trained both as a traditional international employment lawyer and also as (inhouse) legal and compliance consultant. Drawn by the idea to add value rather than ‘just’ acting as a hired gun to solve disputes, Hans thrives working as a trusted advisor for his of-counsel clients both on legal as general company matters.

As a versatile and experienced HRM-professional Ed van Dijken has worked with a great variety of international and regional businesses to develop their HR and to help drive business transformation. He is a HR practitioner with generalist HR management, leadership and specialist experience gained in consultancy, interim, and permanent employment. After he formally joined Galatea, Ed offers ongoing support and works with companies on priority HR issues and projects.
