  1. Recruitment and selection are the main performance indicators for HR departments in Belgium

    Date :

    The main priorities of Belgian human resources departments are still leadership development, recruitment & selection and talent management. This is evident from the third successive annual HR Barometer study by the HR consultancy firm Hudson and Vlerick Business school. This year, the HR Barometer study examined the impact of Belgian personnel policy on the organisation in greater depth.

  2. Hospital networks: quo vadis?

    Date :

    Hospitals are increasingly joining forces in networks of different types, sometimes with other healthcare players. This is an unmistakable trend, but forming networks is also an important strategic decision. How can hospitals ensure the right decisions are taken, both today and tomorrow, guaranteeing a robust, resilient and versatile organisation in the long run? Changes are rapidly succeeding one another, but who knows what healthcare will be like fifteen years from now and what the best set-up would be for these networks? No one can predict the future. However, despite all the uncertainties, a scenario analysis can help in the decision-making process.

  3. Leaving the cocoon

    Date :

    In this double interview, Michael Anseeuw and Professor Bjorn Cumps explain the open-banking study by BNP Paribas Fortis and Vlerick within the Chair Partnership. In the first phase, ten directors and board members are interviewed, after which an ‘open-banking lab’ will be set up where the bank and non-banking players will explore their roles on a joint platform model.

  4. “Cyber-attacks cost companies more in terms of reputational than IT damage”

    Date :

    Not enough companies are sufficiently aware of the risks of hacking, or know how to prevent it to the greatest extent possible. A study conducted by KPMG revealed that 80% of the respondents’ systems were infected with malware and 60% even with crimeware. According to Professor Öykü Isik an approach that focuses exclusively on IT is simply not enough. “You need a corporate strategy for that! After all, your customers and your reputation are under threat!”
