Article Made in Antwerpen - Edith Vervliet

    The number of news reports on burnout, long-term stress and long-term absenteeism is staggering. The abundance of information often makes it difficult for employers to see the wood for the trees.

    That is why Select HR, a total provider of HR solutions with its roots in Antwerp, recently organised a series of breakfast sessions on this topic. Neuropsychologist Michael Portzky, who was also a guest on the Van Gils and Guests talk show on 21 June on één, and Serge Simonet talked about the causes and effects of chronic stress.

    Burnout: glass half full or half empty?

    Burnouts are a growing social and human problem. More than 120,000 people have been home for more than a year, many of them with a burnout. That ever-increasing quantity might make us forget the seriousness of these people's suffering. The immense fatigue, the heavily emotional aspect, the cognitive and physical consequences... we don't wish a burnout on anyone.  But is there a positive side to this serious question? According to Serge Simonet there is. As Senior Manager, Organisational Consultant and founder of Human Pathways, Serge knows the material inside out. He also knows it first hand.

    The benefit of Assessments: our customers explain

    Recruiting a new colleague, placing an internal colleague in a new position... There is always an investment involved where career steps are concerned. For employees themselves this can often involve a great deal more time in training. For companies, the cost can reach as high as 50,000 EUROs. So, needless to say, it is very important to put the right person in the right position. And that is what you can be sure of when using an Assessment. By doing so, the (candidate’s) competencies are tested to find a relevant match in terms of values and standards, or perhaps a totally different set of competencies. Some of our customers talk about their experiences using these Assessments at Select HR.
