IEBA 16th Annual Conference - March 2016

When: 08/03/2016 at 18:00 to 17:00 on 10/03/2016
Where: Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Brussels
Subject: IEBA 16th Annual Conference - REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Registration is now open for our 16th Annual Conference, due to take place on 9 and 10 March 2016. Please go to for the programme. 

We will return once again to Brussels, since we can easily replicate the previous highly successful Conferences where we enjoyed record levels of attendance from a wide variety of countries, and also received very positive feedback ('A very worthwhile conference' - 'A good balance of subjects' - 'Great and smooth overall organisation' - 'Great opportunity for networking' - 'Fantastic dinner' - etc.).

We will be continuing our very reasonable pricing philosophy developed in order to attract even more delegates:

  • EUR 460 or GBP 350 : Corporate delegates (i.e. those responsible for the employee benefits of their organisation's own employees), and all existing IEBA members who have paid their subscriptions by 17 December 2015 (or who have been given free membership)
  • EUR 620 or GBP 490 : Others (including consultants, insurance companies and other providers of services to employers) who are not paid-up IEBA members.

The price includes all meals, including the Gala Dinner on 9 March. In addition, for delegates who are new to IEBA (i.e. are not, and have not previously been, members) andwho are attending the Annual Conference for the first time, the fee includes a year's free membership for the 2016/17 membership year. 

We are continuing with our tried and tested format, including finishing early on the second day so that delegates travelling by air will be able to attend the whole conference and still have plenty of time to travel to the airport to catch their flights home. The Annual General Meeting of the Association will be on the afternoon of 9 March (members only). 

Please register at where you will also find details of the conference organisation (timetable, accommodation, useful information, and terms & conditions). If you are unable to register using the website, contact the conference organisers, CL Events, at [email protected] who will advise you of alternative methods of registration.

As in previous years, in order to achieve a good balance of delegates, attendance is limited to two paying delegates from each organisation that is a service provider (insurance company, consultant, broker, etc).  We do not limit attendance from corporate delegates (i.e. those responsible for the employee benefits of their organisation's own employees).  

In addition, please feel free to tell any colleagues who might also be interested in attending about the conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Brussels!

Bonus pay out in Belgium: warrants vs. other options

When: 21/04/2016 at 16:00 to 20:00
Where: AIG Global Benefits Network Pleinlaan 11 1050 Brussels
Speaker(s): Philip Verlinden (independent consultant); Barbara Genicot (BNP Paribas); Arnaud Bollie (Engie)

Paying out a variable bonus in cash is often very frustrating to both employer and employee in Belgium. Due to the high taxes and social security contributions an employee will see most of his or her well-deserved bonus flow to the Belgian authorities. While a bonus is intended to reward employees for their hard work, they don't feel recognized anymore when looking at their pay slip. In addition the employer wants to find alternative ways that will guarantee a better "return of investment" to motivate their employees. Today there are a number of measurements available which lead to a fiscally more interesting outcome for the employee and/or the employer. But not all options are suitable to any kind of employee population, and they usually come with very specific and technical conditions.
On Thursday April 21 we will lead you through the different possibilities for paying a variable bonus in Belgium and show you the strengths and weaknesses for each option. More in particular we will focus on the topic of warrants which were recently introduced by many large Belgian companies.

We will welcome you at the offices of AIG in Brussels (Pleinlaan 11, Boulevard de la Plaine | B-1050 Brussels) as of 16h:

16h: Welcoming

16h15-16h45: Possibilities to optimize variable bonus in Belgium (Philip Verlinden, Comp & Ben consultant)

16h45-17h15: Warrants (Barbara Genicot, BNP Paribas)

17h15-17h45: Case study Engie/GDF Suez (Arnaud Bollie)

17h45-19h30: networking moment
