Transparency inspires trust

In communicating with stakeholders, corporate accountability is key. Transparent reporting reflects strength, while inspiring trust and confidence. By improving the relevance and coherence of reporting information and by visualising it well, annual reports become more readable and more accessible. That’s when corporate reporting becomes more like corporate storytelling. Organisations are increasingly opting for integrated reporting. This provides insight into how your company adds value for stakeholders and society, and what impact this has. Besides providing support in preparing annual and sustainability reports, Report Company also has a great deal of experience in the field of integrated reporting. Our project list includes award-winning reports of influential global companies such as Randstad N.V. and Schiphol Group.

Who we are

Partner in corporate reporting

Report Company is a full-service specialist in the field of corporate and integrated reporting. We help organisations increase the added value of their financial annual reports, sustainability and CSR reports, and integrated reports. We do this by structuring and linking qualitative information and quantitative data in such a way that they convey the core message optimally, while complying with applicable regulations and reporting guidelines. We make your reports visually attractive, accessible and easy to read, with infographics, dashboards, stories and illustrations. And, of course, we ensure timely and targeted publication: digital, in print or a combination of both.

About us

Report Company is a network company that works with fixed partners in the field of design and styling, copywriting, project management, translation and tooling. All these professionals have extensive experience in the field of corporate reporting. This flexible form of working has proven to be very successful and offers our clients the best price/quality ratio. In everything we do, we highly value our own transparency: we only hire those services that really add value for our clients.

What we can do

Consultancy

Together with you, our client, we map out your wishes and requirements, which we then translate into the most appropriate form, structure and content. Legislation and regulations are our starting point, supplemented with benchmarks, best practices and guidelines from, among others, the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). We can also advise on how existing reports can gradually be transformed into a fully fledged integrated report that complies with all relevant international guidelines.

Content

Creating relevant content and effectively communicating your message to stakeholders is a profession in its own right. Our copywriters, who write in both Dutch and English (native), have years of experience in writing content for all types of corporate reports. The result: concise, powerful texts that fit the culture and communication of your company.

Design

Appearance and image also determine the power of communication. An attractive design increases the accessibility and readability of your report. Report Company works with the best designers, who specialise in corporate reporting both in PDF and online, working on a user-friendly digital reporting platform.

Process support

Report Company gives you peace of mind: our experienced project managers are happy to think along with you and help you determine the best and most efficient approach. In our experience, the use of automated special reporting software, such as Tangelo, contributes to a fast and smooth process. But if this is not an option, we can also support and optimise traditional processes. Efficiency, accuracy, flexibility, a hands-on mentality and an eye for detail are our watchwords.

A selection from our portfolio

Randstad
For more than ten years, Report Company has worked on Randstad’s annual reports, advising on content and form, as well as taking care of overall project management. We have also been closely involved in the step-by-step transition to integrated reporting. In 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 Randstad won the FD Henri Sijthoff Award for the best annual report in the AEX category. Together with Randstad, we are very proud of this achievement.
Royal Schiphol Group
Schiphol is a leader in transparent reporting and is multiple winner of the Crystal Prize and the FD Henri Sijthoff Award. For several years now, Report Company has been managing the online and offline design and translation process for Schiphol. The fact that we take care of all practical aspects means that Schiphol’s project team can fully focus on content.
Nederlandse Loterij (Dutch Lottery)
Report Company has been producing the annual report for Nederlandse Loterij for a number of years now. We are involved in the role of advisor in the field of design and content and also coordinate the process. For the 2019 annual report, we have taken significant steps in increasing transparency by publishing a communicative online reporting platform with storytelling.
NWB Bank
Report Company supervised the implementation of the Tangelo reporting tool at NWB Bank. For the bank’s small annual report project team, this efficiency drive has made the process much more manageable. In addition, we advise on visuals and graphics, and manage the translation process.
NPO (Dutch Public Broadcasting Company)
At NPO, Report Company, in collaboration with CF Report and Tangelo Software, was asked to redesign the five-year reporting cycle and to develop a new reporting framework based on impact, public value and efficiency. The Review 2019 and the Annual Report 2019 are the first publications realised within this new framework.
