research

We offer research focused on practical situations that is highly relevant and can be immediately put into practice at your company. Our activities are based on your needs and requirements as a member of our Centre. We keep our finger on the pulse and react to what is going on in rewards and, by extension, in HR.

RESEARCH TOPICS
  • Reward strategy
  • Translation of the business context into reward systems (including the institutional context, company strategy and culture)
  • Performance-driven reward and bonus systems
  • Communication on rewards
  • Non-financial rewards
  • Remuneration at international level
  • Flexible remuneration
  • Work-life guidelines
  • Employee benefits
  • The pay structure of the future
  • End of career debate
We will approach these topics using the Vlerick Strategic Reward model.

White paper 'Future House of Rewards'
  • 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.
