The challenge

Companies are becoming more flexible in compiling their total remuneration package in order to meet the challenge of finding and retaining good staff members and to adapt benefits to the individual and specific needs of their employees. This flexibility can be given by implementing a flexible reward plan. Yet, many employers struggle with the administrative impact and the Belgian legal context of such a plan. When implementing the plan, all individual, corporate and indirect tax implications as well as the social security and employment law aspects should be considered in order to assess the feasibility and cost of the plan for the employer and the employees

The benefits

  • Compensation package can be shaped to the needs of your employees and their family
  • Important tool from a strategic rewards perspective to attract and retain the best employees on the market
  • Mobility package can be included to encourage employees to use other mobility measures
  • Flexible reward package can be used to reduce your costs with no or limited net impact for the employees
