“I'M PROUD TO BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS WARM ENVIRONMENT”

On how the VUB aims to stimulate its employees' personal growth with special attention for well-being.

What does the VUB mean to you personally?

“The warm, human environment. I felt it from my very first day as a student. I'm personally very proud to be able to contribute to that human focus through my job as HR advisor. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping to contribute every day to the well-being policy at our university. The VUB is relatively young, so we still have a lot to organise and refine, but it's a challenge I'm happy to take on!

Sometimes well-being is about little things that have a big impact. Think of ergonomic adjustments, diversity campaigns for bringing together a wide range of people, or campaigns that help with more efficient communication. In fact, our team created a training on this theme, when it became clear that there was a need for it. That’s a very good illustration of our training policy: we like to let things grow from the ground up. All suggestions and ideas are valuable. Being able to help colleagues with their development in this way gives meaning to my job.

Besides, I have really great co-workers. We often go for lunch together or have drinks after work. You might say that we've become friends. In short, I’ve fallen in love with the VUB. Which is why I don't mind the daily commute from Leuven one bit.”
