Our People

What Our Colleagues Have to Say

Working at Staples has made me more secure and enabled, if I have ideas I know I can speak freely with honesty and sincerity knowing that my superiors and managers will support me.
Magda Marcodini
Customer Support Center - Italy
Staples provided me with a very efficient platform that’s helped me to shape myself in terms of negotiating, engaging, adapting and also learned to really look at things from a different angle or perspective. When you have this you have everything you need, to own it.
Aini Chong
European Brand Manager
25 years ago I started my career in one of our retail stores, and now I’m the MD for our retail business in the Netherlands. Life at Staples has taught me how important it is to keep it simple: in everything I do, including the processes involved and especially how our customers should experience Staples Solutions.
Richard Houpperman
Managing Director Retail - The Netherlands
I began my journey at Staples on the sales and marketing team. In my 10 years here I’ve developed myself working on cross functional projects and connecting with people around the same values and work ethics. We work together to achieve our goals to over deliver from a customer perspective. I’m proud to work with an international team that is driven.
Mats Karlsson
Managing Director - The Nordics
If you tell people you work at Staples, it’s always positive feedback. It’s a workplace that I would absolutely recommend to other people. We have such great teams here, everyone is open and supportive, which creates a friendly and productive working climate.
