Vanbreda wins Xylos Inspire Award 2018

We live in a digital age. Our clients and partners have ever-higher expectations about what online services can deliver. For this reason, we need to give our employees – the foundation of Vanbreda Risk & Benefits – the right tools to further develop into smart digital colleagues.

That’s why we created the Vanbreda Academy earlier this year. HR Director Els Van Hoeck explains: “This is an innovative e-learning platform structured around topics, programs and online applications that both our employees and our customers use on a day-to-day basis. We are evolving into a digital world and we are making it a priority to help our employees navigate it.”

We are delighted to have won the Xylos Inspire Award 2018 with the Vanbreda Academy. “We see it as a fantastic recognition of our digital learning platform and for the company as a whole.”

Other digital innovations

Another digital innovation being pioneered by Vanbreda is MyVanbreda. This is an entirely digital insurance platform that we make available to all our business clients.

Bart Casteleyn, Business Manager MyVanbreda: “This platform enables the employees of our clients to take out private insurance cover at very attractive rates, using an entirely online service. This allows us to offer our clients an additional benefit that they can make available to their staff free of charge.” For further information on MyVanbreda, go to or send an e-mail to

We also started rolling out the Vanbreda HealthCare app for our Health Care customers on 1 October. “This digital tool facilitates easy administration for our Health Care policyholders who have a healthcare insurance policy through their employer that covers medical costs”, explains Kris Heyman, Director Health Care. “The app makes it easy for policyholders to submit information on medical expenses and notify an instance of hospitalisation on the basis of personalised profiles for themselves and their family members.”

Further information about the Vanbreda HealthCare app is available via this link.

Office redesign

Alongside these digital innovations, we have given our offices a complete makeover to create an inspiring work environment.

“We opted for a hot desking concept”, explains project leader Marc Kegelaers. “From the end of 2018, all our employees will be able to benefit from working in a fresh, modern working environment. Now that our offices and storage is being used more efficiently, we are able to make part of our building available to other companies who may be interested in using it.”
