Beltug’s ‘Recommendations for a Corporate Policy’: Do's and don'ts for successful working from home with Prof. Dr. Elke Van Hoof. N-sight Interactive virtual meeting

Location:virtual meeting


For more than 10 years, Beltug has provided recommendations for companies’ corporate policies. The 2021 update comes at a time when working from home is becoming a ‘normal’ part of the work structure for many more profiles, and many more days a week. What should organisations consider, and how should this be included in corporate policies?


We have invited Prof. Dr. Elke Van Hoof to share her insight into how organisations must evolve their company culture, if they want to make increased working from home successful.  Plus, we’ll hear the real-life experiences of Fluvius in rethinking and creating an adapted homeworking policy.


Don't forget you can pass this invitation on to your colleagues in HR or management!






This event will be held as an interactive virtual meeting. The link will be provided in the Confirmation email.

13:50 The do's and don'ts for successfully working from home


For working from home to be successful, managers and employees alike must make efforts. Managers need to better communicate and to involve and motivate people remotely, while employees need to structure and focus. An organisation that masters these skills has a better chance of implementing working from home responsibly.

14:40 User story Fluvius: Implementing an adapted homeworking policy


Fluvius is the public electricity and gas distribution company in Flanders. During the COVID-19 confinement, its several thousand employees were all required to work from home. This unexpected situation gave Fluvius the space to rethink and implement an adapted homeworking policy, which comes into effect on 1 September 2021.  In this presentation, you will find out about their current policy, the ICT situation at peoples’ home ‘offices’, and how Fluvius is converting meeting rooms into hybrid collaboration rooms.
