  1. “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.

  3. Link between salary and seniority should be time-limited

    Date :

    The wage pressure in Belgium, i.e. the salary tension between younger and older employees, is one of the highest in Europe. On average, 55-year-old employees earn 45% more than their 30-year-old colleagues doing the same job. Furthermore, we are living longer so our working lives are also longer. Consequently, a new wage structure is required, based on a mix of experience, performance and flexible rewards. That is what Professor Xavier Baeten, researcher Saïd Loyens (Vlerick Business School) and Bert De Greve (Hudson) propose in a white paper that offers a fresh perspective on the future house of rewards.

  4. “A Trojan horse? No thanks!”

    Date :

    Many family businesses aren't making full use of the potential of private equity. Is it because they fear what they don't know? Or are they worried that bringing a financial investor on board will be like inviting in a Trojan horse? A ‘meeting of minds’ between Professors Sophie Manigart and Miguel Meuleman, Dr. Jeroen Neckebrouck and Koen Dejonckheere, the CEO of investment company Gimv.
