“It started two years ago with the introduction of Google Apps,” recalls Paul Danneels, CIO at the VDAB. “This gave our staff, on one hand, easier access to all documents while working externally but, on the other hand, the demand to use their own mobile devices certainly rose exponentially.” “In order to close the digital gap with our staff and to offer them HR-advantages, we have chosen the Belgacom Employee Solutions. We offer our employees discounts on mobile devices of their choice and their home Internet is paid by the VDAB. Their mobile internet is charged at professional rates,” says Guido Triest, Budget Manager at the VDAB. The solution is a perfect illustration of our efforts to increase employee satisfaction and ICT innovation. Paul Danneels: “Our 5,000 employees can choose a mobile device on a portal. We make sure that we can support these devices in the areas of security and accessibility. Both e-mails and documents, as well as their agenda are available in the cloud, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
Exactly what the big advantage for the VDAB is, is crystal clear to Katrien Vereecken, Director of General Services at the VDAB: “Maximum reachability! Our staff are increasingly working outside of the office, at job fairs, on-site with employers or simply working from home. Thanks to the Employee Solutions pack from Belgacom, we can give them the freedom to access their documents and reach one another anywhere, instead of constantly having to return to the office.”
