Vlerick expertise in People Management & Leadership

  1. Happiness at work is a habit you can practice

    We all have to work. However, the key to finding happiness on the job is to feel good at work. There are countless benefits to happiness at work, both for the employee and the company, as scientific research has repeatedly shown. According to "The Happiness Advantage” by the American researcher Shawn Achor, happy employees are up to 31% more productive and their creativity is three times higher. With the support of ESF Flanders, Vlerick Business School and HR service provider Attentia have therefore developed a new tool which wants to promote happiness at work.
  2. Creativity is not result, it’s a process

    Creativity is all about generating as much ground-breaking ideas as possible. You put up idea boxes in the canteen, organise regular brainstorming sessions and your organisation will be brimming with creativity, on the forefront of innovation in no time. Right? Not quite. “Statistics show that only few ideas actually get implemented. Granted, not all ideas are feasible, but implementation often fails because organisations lack a proper innovation process,” explains Professor Katleen De Stobbeleir.
