Larissa van Wijngaaren

HR Officer

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but about learning to dance in the rain.

Larissa van Wijngaarden started as HR Officer at the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL) on the 1st of March 2024. Larissa will be taking care of the onboarding and offboarding of colleagues and will be more than happy to help with any HR related question. Larissa studied International Business and Languages and has explored different fields, but figured out that HR is the right field.

In her previous company, Larissa streamlined the onboarding and offboarding processes and helped to digitalize this. Furthermore, Larissa helped organizing activities such as a recurring vitality week to help reduce stress. The talent of the employees was being used to organize the workshops during the vitality week. Examples of workshops during this week were: yoga, salsa and how to reduce stress.

Larissa went abroad twice for her studies: once to Nottingham for a marketing internship and the year after to Barcelona for a study abroad. Larissa loves travelling. She recently went to Colombia for the first time and is planning to add many destinations to the list. Larissa also loves singing and started a band within her previous company. However, her biggest passion is dancing salsa and bachata.
