"Pioneers in industrial automation," is how Naomi Duym, Compensation & Benefits Specialist at Agidens, describes the company she works for. But the organisation is also leading the way with its HR policy.
Naomi: "Our biggest challenge is recruiting and retaining engineers and technical profiles. The 'war for talent' is still raging in our sector. We provide a lot of opportunities for talent to develop with regular training and on-the-job learning. And as we're always working on innovative projects, there's plenty to learn. So all our employees, both junior and senior, have lots of room to grow.
We are fully committed to keeping employees motivated, healthy and happy. We try to be as progressive as possible in achieving a work-life balance and also in flexible benefits. For example, with the 'cafeteria plan', employees can allocate part of their 13th month of salary to a benefit of their choice: sports club membership, extra pension or an electric company bike. The latter has proven to be very popular as a green and flexible mobility option is certainly beneficial if your company is close to the Antwerp Ring.
We also like to continue that 'flexibility' in our approach to employee gifts. In 2018 we discovered Kadonation and our visions clicked instantly. Before Kadonation we worked with paper gift vouchers through our meal voucher provider. Thankfully, the era of paper vouchers is over! I still remember it, all those packages on the table, constant running around, check lists... #stress. You could only spend those vouchers in a limited number of shops. With a Kadonation Gift Voucher, we killed two birds with one stone: the range of gifts for our employees is now very large, and it's all digital. At Agidens, we always go for digital ease and complete security.

Another advantage of the Kadonation Gift Vouchers is that we can use them internationally. In addition to our 450 employees in Belgium, we also have 70 employees in the Netherlands that we want to treat in the same way. This is made very easy with the Kadonation Gift Voucher."
The Kadonation Gift Vouchers have been a big hit at Agidens. Splitting, saving, spending in different shops: anything's possible. And they never expire! You can also spend it on 'hot topics', like upgrading the design of your home office."
Naomi manages the gift vouchers together with her HR colleague. They order and follow up on everything via the Kadonation Select platform. Naomi: "We give a digital gift voucher for memorable events like a wedding, newborn or anniversary. To celebrate a retirement, we normally order the luxury gift box and then present it to them at a reception in their honour. With Kadonation Select, everything runs really smoothly and all within the same platform.
We were early adopters and also acted as beta testers for Kadonation Select. Kadonation has taken a really professional approach to the development of this tool. I suggested some improvements to how invoices are handled, and those were included in the final setup. We have two HR colleagues using Select. The tool is very user-friendly for ordering and following up on the gift vouchers."
