Within the Flemish government, a shared vision on human resources strategy has been developed. As an employer, the Flemish government faces a number of challenges. These challenges ask for an HR strategy that allows for flexibility and mobility.

HR Policy

The Government of Flanders aims – via the key project ‘Modern HR Policy’ (within the context of the Multiyear Program ‘Decisive Governance’) – to realize its strategic vision by means of five HR objectives: mobility, employability, employee reward policy, labor organization, and leadership.


The Government of Flanders wants to be a mirror reflection of society and to that end strives to achieve within her HR complement an equitable and proportionate representation of social groups that suffer from job inequality and/or lesser or fewer opportunities in the workplace.

Diversity & Equal Opportunities

The Government of Flanders wants to be a model for all citizens and organizations in the area of equal opportunities and diversity. The Government of Flanders wants to reflect the make-up of the Flemish society and is constantly striving to achieve the proportionate and equitable representation of disadvantaged social groups within its HR complement.


The Government of Flanders considers the well-being and safety of employees its first priority. In this respect, the Government has identified seven areas of well-being.

The Government of Flanders offers in each of these areas of well-being a specific service such as, for instance, instruction programs or information sessions for employees.


The Government of Flanders is pursuing the development of an integrated and effective integrity policy. A consistent and consequent integrity policy is, indeed, bound to positively influence the trust and confidence of citizens and companies in the workings of the Government of Flanders.
