Over the past years, people became more aware of who they are and what they want in life ánd their jobs. Things that made employees gain more confidence to share their opinion, but also admitting not feeling okay mentally has a lower threshold. How do companies make people feel comfortable to come as they are?
As energy coach at Randstad RiseSmart, and an eternal student, Bernadette has spent the last 15 years studying the power of our human brain and body. She combined this incredible knowledge with 20 years of labour market experience and coaching. Bernadette works with individuals at all levels, on becoming aware of their body, their balance and energy and its impact on their efficiency and happiness at work. All based on tools and science.
She also works with organisations to create a culture where, in addition to thinking, ‘feeling’ also has a place. By supporting them to create a safe environment, organisations give everyone a chance to embrace embodiment and make the most of and develop talents.
“My personal mission is to inspire people every day, in a business context and during my yoga classes, to bring out the best in themselves, to find peace, contentment or even happiness so they can inspire others too. The key lies in thinking, feeling and acting differently, not in doing more.”
As a leadership advisor at Randstad RiseSmart, Ilse guides organisations through transformations and supports them in creating a strong leadership framework. She connects easily with individuals and teams across all levels of the organisation.
Ilse supports leaders in connecting positively with others, and in bringing out the best in themselves so leaders can inspire others too. Building on the principles of Appreciative Inquiry, Ilse always puts the individual, the organisation or the process in the centre so one of them can be used as the catalyst for the future.
Ilse strongly believes that ‘listening to someone, helps them grow’.
Data and technology are more important in our lives than ever. We collect and analyse data continuously and therefore focus on the thinking part of our human brain, that has to process all the data. In doing so, we forget that our body also gives signals – data – and tells us exactly what we need so we can select wisely the data we need to move forward. We are convinced that ‘feeling’ is at least as important as ‘thinking’ and can also be translated to the workplace in a rational way. The key lies in creating a culture where, in addition to thinking, feeling also has a place.

Imec works with more than 5,000 experts and about half are contingent employees. There are different procedures to onboard an external employee than those to start an internal employee.
How to make new hires feel like part of the imec team immediately, no matter whether they are internal or contingent?
And how to provide a smooth onboarding experience with less administrative hassle for your team?
Imec built a personalized webpage for each new employee.
Every new employee sees a warm ‘imec style’ welcome page, with all the relevant information info they need to get started, varying on whether they are contingent or internal, move in from another country,… In the backend everything is linked to the HR software and ends up in the right tools and software. This means less administrative work for the HR team and the employee can find everything in one place instead of different tools.

If your company is recruting, then you have probably considered posting your job offer on a job site.
But are jobboards still relevant?
Hasn’t the recruitment market evolved to more modern and better performing tools? Can’t we use artificial intelligence to find new employees?

We find that success hinges on the synergy between people and data. The challenge is to transform the right data into actionable decisions that benefit both people and the business. Effective data analysis, combined with a touch of intuition, enables us to make forward-looking choices that nurture a thriving culture where everyone can come as they are. A people/data approach can guide our talent strategy, and allow us to develop, engage, retain and attract any talent in times of scarcity, and have a positive impact on our business.

AI technology improves business performance and productivity by automating processes or tasks that previously required human effort. In addition, AI makes it possible to interpret data on a scale that no human could ever handle. That ability can bring significant benefits to a business.

For the past seven years, she has been exploring trends related to the world of work and HR (tech) while trying to get closer to her own raison d’être – her Ikigai – at the same time. She writes and speaks a lot about these topics and she also is an instructor on several popular HR certifications.
