Great Place To Work

Hays has been awarded the title of Great Place to Work 2018.

Hays is particularly proud to be voted ‘Great Place to Work’ in Belgium in the category of organisations with fewer than 500 employees. A Great Place to Work is characterized by proud employees, good working conditions and a high level of trust, fun and respect within an organisation. Especially trust is a determining factor.




Robby Vanuxem, Managing Director, sees the title as a nice reward, but certainly not as an end- point. “We are living in a world of ‘change’, a mix of generations in the workplace, ‘work-life balance’, … We believe it’s necessary for our employees to feel comfortable with us. We realise that employer branding is becoming more and more important. It is not only about attracting talent, but also about retaining talent. Young employees attach great importance to a healthy work-life balance, without having to lose out on career opportunities. They increasingly choose employers who fit their own character and convictions in terms of culture, values and atmosphere. I am convinced that working on happiness, corporate communications and centralising employees lead to better business results.”




According to Gudrun De Scheerder, team leader Central Administration and at Hays for 20 years now, the fun atmosphere in the workplace makes a difference. “We are a very nice team, a healthy mix between young and old, ‘experienced’ and less experienced’. We also have a diverse range of tasks and a lot of contact with people. Furthermore, the management has a clear vision for the future and how our department fits this vision. Every day, we deal with an important aspect in people’s lives: finding a good job and ensuring a proper remuneration, answering their questions and providing solutions for the issues they are confronted with. I love to go to work because my colleagues, direct managers and also management make us feel very appreciated for our work.”
