    Employees want more flexibility with benefits

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    In general, benefits are fairly well aligned in terms of supply and demand. The leading benefits are pensions, hospitalisation insurance, meal vouchers and training. Green measures and childcare are rare, and opportunities for working from home could also be improved. The most striking conclusion is that people want greater flexibility. This does not only mean choices and the alignment of benefits with personal circumstances, but also flexibility as to how the bonus is paid out. Finally, it appears that understanding of benefits is lower than it should be.

  4. Top European salaries: the gap between countries is widening

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    In continental Europe, the best-paid CEOs can be found in Germany. Belgium and France pay less. Dutch companies are the most economical. In the past three years, Europe has continued to moderate executive pay, a trend which began in 2007. In general, the level of executive salaries is mainly dependent on the size of the company, followed by the country where the company is based. The composition of remuneration packages has hardly changed. Finally, we have noted that the trend towards corporate social responsibility and sustainability has not yet really been reflected in the criteria that determine variable pay. These are the most important conclusions of the annual research into top salaries by the Executive Remuneration Research Centre at Vlerick Business School.
