    On 24 & 25 of November, the Vlerick HR Alumni gathered in Nieuwpoort for their annual symposium.

  2. Vlerick and Robert Half Management Resources launch new programme for Belgian interim managers

    Date:
    Category: Programme news

    More and more Belgian companies are calling on interim managers: professionals that offer companies specific expertise (executive management, Human Resources, supply chain and production, or other) for a limited period and seldom for longer than a year. An independent survey carried out on behalf of Robert Half Management Resources has revealed that 75 per cent of Belgian CFOs intend to bring in an interim manager in 2016. In response to this demand Vlerick Business School and Robert Half Management Resources are joining forces for the first time to deliver a programme in ‘Mastering Interim Management’.

    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.

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

    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.

  5. Three quarters of the BEL20 companies pay their CEO less than in 2007

    Category: Press Releases

    Across all listed companies, total CEO remuneration has increased by an average of 23% over the last eight years (2007-2014) in Belgium. There are major differences depending on the stock market index, however (BEL20, Bel mid, Bel small). As for the composition of the package, it appears that share-related remuneration is falling out of favour. It also appears that variable remuneration is mainly determined by short-term financial benchmarks. Finally, Belgium scores relatively well in comparison to other countries in terms of diversity, especially with respect to the nationality and gender of the CEO. These are the most important conclusions drawn from the annual research into top salaries by Professor Xavier Baeten of the Executive Remuneration Research Centre.

  6. Pay structure of the future – arguments in favour of a more variable salary

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    “At present, wage costs are not rising any faster in Belgium than in the neighbouring countries. But that does not mean that we can declare victory. As the population ages, salary costs will become impossibly high for employers.” Xavier Baeten, Professor of Reward and Sustainability at Vlerick Business School, advocates a completely new way of looking at pay. "Our pay structure is based far too heavily on fixed basic pay”, Xavier Baeten argues. “We need a new pay structure with considerably less emphasis on the basic salary.”

  7. Leadership development and talent management remain key HR challenges for the future

    This spring, Hudson and Vlerick Business School presented the trends and challenges for HRM at leading Belgian companies by way of an HR Barometer. The HR managers of the largest Belgian profit organisations (in terms of staff numbers) and the Bel 20 organisations were invited to participate in an online survey. Some 58 organisations from a diversity of sectors participated in the survey, together representing more than 200,000 workers employed in Belgium.
