  1. Potential of HR analytics still underused by many companies

    Date :

    The Belgian human resources departments are focused on attracting, developing and motivating talent once again this year. Recruitment and selection are number one here, followed by leadership development and talent management. Those are the results from the fourth annual HR Barometer study by HR consultancy firm Hudson and Vlerick Business School. HR analytics, however, has not really established itself yet. Although companies collect lots of data, those responsible for HR indicate that they are often not proficient enough in analysing it.

  2. A(cademic research) + B(usiness) + C(onsultancy) = D(igital success)

    Date :

    What if you could create an ecosystem that would allow you not only to better understand the influence of digital technology on your business activities, but also to convert it into value? Accenture and Vlerick have found a way to do exactly that with their ‘Digital 20/20’ Chair Partnership. We spoke to Wim Decraene, Managing Director of Accenture Digital BeLux, Steve Muylle, professor of marketing and digital strategy at Vlerick and Willem Standaert, lecturer and post-doctoral researcher at Vlerick.

  3. “You can't separate wage policy from business strategy”

    Date :

    During the ‘Future House of Rewards’ conference at the Brussels Vlerick campus, the large audience gained a lot of insights. After a presentation of the white paper ‘Future House of Rewards’, inspiring practical examples followed from Ontex and KBC. The highlight: an animated panel debate with a number of big players from the Belgian entrepreneurial landscape. We discussed the subject with Ivan De Witte and Xavier Baeten, Professor of Reward & Sustainability at Vlerick.

  4. “Smart meters accelerating change”
