Claeys & Engels 2022 HR Beacon

The pandemic was an unprecedented wake-up call for many of us, causing disruption in addition to teaching us valuable lessons, including about the way we work. For the fifth edition of our annual HR Beacon, we asked our clients to share their opinions, insights, needs and vision in terms of HR policy.

What has changed in 2021? What are their main concerns? What are their plans for the near future?

We received a total of 364 replies.

We are delighted to share the results with you.

Privacy and information security

In 2020 we obtained the ISO 27001:2017 certificate through which we seek to demonstrate that information security is not only important on paper for us, but that we also had this verified by an independent auditor.

We also obtained the ISO 27701:2019 certificate. For our firm, it is important to ensure that our internal proceedings provide sufficient guarantees that we handle personal data securely.

In Memory of Thierry Claeys

With great sadness the partners and counsel of Claeys & Engels announce that their founding partner, driving force and friend Thierry Claeys has deceased. He was the founding partner and Managing Partner of Claeys & Engels as well as the driving force for our international practice Ius Laboris. We are and will remain eternally thankful for everything he meant for us and our firm. He shall forever remain an inspiration to us.
