For the 9th consecutive year, the Vlerick Business School in collaboration with The Great Place To Work, the global authority on organisational culture, has voted Easi the best place to work in Belgium in the small and medium-sized enterprise category. This is an achievement for the Belgian IT company, which places the well-being and professional development of its employees at the center of its priorities.

Each year, the Vlerick Institute and The Great Place to Work publish a ranking of the "Best Workplaces in Belgium". Concretely, a large survey is carried out among employees of participating companies to examine how they view the level of trust, pride and collegiality within their company. The ranking is therefore based primarily on the opinions of employees. This year again, we find the IT company Easi, mainly based in Nivelles and Leuven, on the top of the podium.

A last award in the medium-sized category

Easi was awarded first place in this category because of its 98% employee satisfaction rate! With 20 years of experience, this Belgian company stands out as a provider of IT solutions and services for medium and large companies. In total, more than 450 employees work daily to satisfy the 800 customers that Easi currently has. "2023 will be a challenging year. We are pleased to have won this prestigious award again, but it was the last one in this category, as we will soon reach 500 employees", explains Thomas Van Eeckhout, Co-CEO of Easi. Indeed, the IT Company is growing rapidly. Between 2021 and 2022, it acquired four companies in just ten months. Companies that must now be integrated into its internal structures.

 "Our employees are the backbone of our business”

Every day, Easi works to improve the well-being of its employees and ensure their professional development. "This result confirms that our efforts to put our employees first are paying off," says Thomas Van Eeckhout. "We know that our chances of winning this award for the tenth time are smaller than in other years, as we will be competing in a higher category with large companies that are well established in the ranking. Nevertheless, we are participating in this competition mainly for our employees, to show our appreciation for the work they do on a daily basis", adds Jean-François Herremans, Co-CEO of Easi.
The award also demonstrates the mutual trust that exists between the employees of this IT Company and their management. This trust goes even further than this ranking, as Easi allows its employees to become shareholders in the company. Today, 25% of them are already shareholders! "Our employees are the backbone of our business. They are the driving force behind our success. Every day, they invest a little more in our customers and their colleagues. We are proud of the company culture that we have managed to build and maintain together", concludes Jean-François Herremans.

Some key figures from Easi

As previously explained, the Vlerick Institute and The Great Place to Work carry out an extensive employee survey of participating companies to establish a ranking. This survey gives Easi the opportunity to find out what its employees think about various internal aspects. For example, we learn that:

  • 98% of employees feel they are treated fairly in terms of their gender, age, race and/or sexual orientation.
  • 99% of them also believe that management is competent to run the company.
  • 90% of its employees also feel that they receive a fair share of the company's profits.
  • Finally, 91% of its employees find that they are encouraged to balance their private and professional lives.
