  1. Bonuses increasingly part of employees’ pay packet

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    Much has been written about bonuses for senior executives. Now, however, it seems that an increasing number of administrative support functions are also entitled to a bonus. This growth is largely a result of the collective labour agreement of 20 December 2007 concerning non-recurrent result-based bonuses, also called the CAO 90. Bonuses that meet the conditions of this CLA, the most important of which is that the bonuses must be linked to the collective instead of the individual performance, are subject to a favourable (para)fiscal regime. Together with Hudson and Claeys & Engels Vlerick did a study in which 459 companies participated.

    “We aim for the long term. In our business, where investments typically have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years, you just have to. That’s why we’re committed to establishing and nurturing long-term relationships with all our stakeholders, whether they’re customers, employees, suppliers or partners, like Vlerick. And we’ve been very satisfied with our partnership so far,” says Paul Hautekiet, Compensations & Benefits and Social Relations Manager at Electrabel, when asked why Electrabel and GDF Suez decided to renew their twofold Prime Foundation Partnership once again.

    Last year, long-standing Prime Foundation Partner Hudson upgraded its partnership to a Chair. “It was the logical next step,” explains Luc Drieghe, Director Public Sector & Talent Management at Hudson Belgium. “Vlerick is a high-calibre knowledge organisation of international standing. Like Vlerick, we focus on knowledge creation, knowledge sharing and knowledge application to bring added value to our clients. Logic almost dictates that we should team up. We’ve been working together for many years now, and I believe to our mutual satisfaction. This Chair takes our partnership to a whole new level.”

    Cost control, differentiation and performance management in the remuneration package are the three most important points for reward managers to consider in 2014. This is highlighted by the results of the Reward Barometer, an annual survey for members of the Centre for Excellence in Strategic Rewards and alumni of the Compensation & Benefits Management programme. The survey chiefly gauges which factors are of strategic importance to HR professionals, and how satisfied they are with them.

    AE and Schoenen Torfs are head up the top 10 of Belgium's ‘Best Workplaces 2014’. A ‘Best Workplace’ is a company in which the employees trust their supervisors (management), are proud of their performance (job) and enjoy their working environment (colleagues). The good scores obtained by AE and Schoenen Torfs are mainly due to their employee satisfaction levels. With their title of ‘Best Workplaces 2014’ in Belgium, AE and Schoenen Torfs are good role models when it comes to a people-centred, high-quality personnel policy.

  6. A new tool called “Stevig in de steigers” facilitates the coaching of low-skilled workers

    Highly trained employees are used to coaching and personal development programmes in the workplace. Lifelong learning, however, is also a must for low-skilled workers, in order to be able to work and survive in the labour market of the future. But it is difficult to organise in practice, and often they are not open to the idea. With the support of the European Social Fund (ESF) Vlerick Business School, together with the not-for-profit association “Wonen en Werken Opleiding”, developed a tool called “Stevig in de steigers”. This fun and user-friendly low-threshold tool provides support to executives during their coaching conversations with their employees.

  7. Decrease in the salaries of top managers in the past five years

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    The United Kingdom has the best-paid CEOs of our neighbouring countries. Belgium features at the bottom of the list, but is not really lagging behind much. It is worth noting that share-related remuneration is decreasing in all countries. In Belgium, salaries in general have dropped, save for those in the smallest listed companies, which are clearly gaining ground. Finally, the fixed-salary share of the total package has registered a sharp increase in 2012. These are the main conclusions of the yearly study into the salaries of top managers conducted by Vlerick Business School’s Executive Remuneration Research Centre.

  8. Rewarding globally

    Date:
    Category: Programme news

    In a globalising world, with companies and organisations acting more internationally, rewards become more complex to manage. How can you see the clear links between business strategy and reward? How can you integrate HR and rewards into a process of change? And how do you deal with specific issues such as global mobility, expatriation, cultural differences, etc.? Together with two partner business schools, Vlerick has now developed a new 12-day programme.

  9. Belgians do not envisage themselves retiring at 65

    Date:
    Category: Press Releases

    Only one in five Belgians wants to work 80% or more between the ages of 60 and 65. The special system for certain older employees, which allows them to work fewer hours towards the end of their career without affecting their pension entitlement, but also the prospect of salary increases as they get older, could positively influence people’s willingness to work for longer. Belgians are also good at estimating the benefits they can expect, both from their state pensions and their supplementary pensions. This is what can be concluded from research on the perception that Belgian employees between the ages of 45 and 65 have of the end of their career.
