Belgium is currently at number 17 in the world. That brings us back to the position we held in 2012 and 2013, before we slipped down one place for two years running. Apart from that, there are various shifts in the global top 20, but no newcomers. The top three – Switzerland, Singapore and the US – remain unchanged.

  6. Flemish lack of entrepreneurial spirit is culturally determined

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    In Flanders, one in ten people plans to start a new company in the next three years. This is a record number in comparison to 15 years ago. The flip side is that people are doing this primarily out of necessity, because they have no other choice. The virtually unbridgeable gap between an opportunity and an actual start-up experienced by the majority of Flemings can largely be attributed to a fear of failure and a lack of confidence in their own ability. These are the most important conclusions of the 15th edition of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor

Both programmes, which respond to a trend towards greater specialisation, immediately got off to a strong start with 29 and 35 students, respectively.

  8. Who is starting a business in Flanders and why (not)?

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    No less than 9% of Flemish respondents want to start a new business within the next 3 years. However, a considerable gap remains between dream and reality, mainly due to fear of failure and a lack of self-confidence. It is also striking that people who start a new business effectively tend to do so based on necessity rather than opportunity. Start-ups have low ambitions in terms of job creation and innovation. Nevertheless, the international mindset in Flanders is among the highest in Europe.

  9. EASI and Torfs retain their titles as Belgium's Best Workplaces 2016

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    For the second year in a row, EASI and Torfs are number 1 in their categories in the top 10 of Belgium's Best Workplaces 2016. The good scores obtained by the two companies are mainly due to their employee satisfaction levels. This is because the result of this annual, large-scale study by Vlerick Business School in collaboration with the Great Place to Work® Institute Belgium and media partner Jobat is based on an employee survey which determines two-thirds of the final score.

  10. Only 1 in 5 Belgian companies fully optimises remuneration to lower wage cost

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    A study by Vlerick Business School and Attentia involving 130 Belgian companies has provided new insights into remuneration and well-being policies. Very few companies today are making optimum use of wage optimisation opportunities to reduce wage costs. For example, only 1 in 5 organisations are operating a structural optimisation policy and only 15% makes use of flexible remuneration, also known as the ‘cafeteria plan’. Although over 80% regard well-being as a crucial element, not everyone has implemented it in communication or actions. While anyone investing over 3% of the HR budget in actions concerning well-being, has observed positive effects in a very short term.
