Innovatief verlonen dmv een billijke en rechtvaardige variabele verloning: een praktijkoefening – Jo Vandenbossche18 April 2023
When one thinks of “innovative remuneration”, one quickly thinks of all kinds of interesting things that can be offered to employees, where the difference between gross and net is as small as possible. In her article, Jo Vandenbossche discusses a practical exercise in “innovative remuneration” in which an additional variable remuneration system is linked to individual and collective objectives, with the aim of setting up a fair and equitable construction as an important objective.Read more
In “DEI als democratiseringsproces waarbij rechten hersteld worden”, Latifa Matheeussen argues that “value-added creation” is often taken as the starting point/motivation for a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion policy.

With her article, Leen aims to highlight “mediation in employment context”. Indeed, expert mediation can play both a curative and a preventive role, giving the employer the opportunity to work on the “conflict resilience” and “conflict skills” of employees and the company as a whole.Read more
