A reward system that is clearly on the rise, profit-sharing (see box). While in 2017, only 54 companies, their employees did participate in the profits, there were in 2018 suddenly 738. The sudden breakthrough has everything to do with the reform that Finance minister Alexander De Croo in 2017 will revert. The profit premium – is the name of the system of participation in profits from 1 January 2018 – is much easier to know than its predecessor, the profit participation. “As an employer at the end of a profitable year to all his employees the same amount or the same percentage of the salary, then it is sufficient to include this in the minutes of the General Meeting to mention”, says Isabelle Cornelis, consultant at hr service provider SD Worx.

The profit premium is an excellent instrument to which efforts to reward you.” Colleague Geert Vanherwegen confirms: “Similar advocacy is one of our principles.

Also that other collective premium, the wage bonus collective labour agreement 90 (see box), continue to Steensels and Vanherwegen use. “Each year, we set a number of competitive, market-oriented goals. Be obtained, then generates a part of the extra efficiency to the employees back. The evaluation is made at the wage bonus so in a different way than the profit premium. Not the growth and the yield are decisive, but the targets.

As an employee, you should be aware that one year is better than the other.” Randstad works not only with collective goals, but also individually give employees targets, albeit to a limited extent.
