The story

You’ve probably heard of the home nursing organ­i­sa­tion, the Wit-Gele Kruis (White and Yellow Cross). Or perhaps you’ve spotted one of their easy-to-recognise cars.

How does this organ­i­sa­tion manage to keep their talented team happy and motivated in such a difficult economic climate? To gain an insight into their recog­ni­tion programme, we spoke to HR director Sofie De Ceuster and HR adviser Liselore Dubois.

Kadonation builds connections in The War For Talent

Liselore explains: We’re really proud of our enthu­si­as­tic White and Yellow Cross team, which includes 770 employees in Flemish Brabant. We want each of them to feel good about working for our organ­i­sa­tion. That’s why we offer a salary that’s more than com­pet­i­tive, an attractive package with extra benefits, a car with an unlimited fuel card and, to top it off, we’ve also set up a fantastic recog­ni­tion programme.”

Sofie adds: We have a caring culture with a lot of focus on each individual. For example, each employee has regular coaching sessions aimed at their personal devel­op­ment. And although our employees are often on their own when they’re out and about, they’re certainly not alone. They can count on their team, and as a large organ­i­sa­tion we also offer a lot of services to support them.”

Finding good employees isn’t easy. That’s why we incen­tivise our employees to help us with this, by rewarding them with a Kadonation Gift Voucher.

Yet as an HR adviser spe­cial­is­ing in recruit­ment and selection, I’m seeing the con­se­quences of the war for talent more than ever,” Liselore concludes.

Recruiting good, pro­fes­sion­al workers really isn’t easy. That’s why we incen­tivise our employees to help us find new staff, and we reward them for this with a Kadonation Gift Voucher.

Broader and more efficient recognition programme thanks to Kadonation

Recruit­ment aside, organ­i­sa­tions of course also need to remember to invest in their current employees, something the White and Yellow Cross has really taken to heart.

It only takes a few clicks for me to send Kadonation gift vouchers to our employees, and completely in the White and Yellow Cross branding.”
- Liselore Dubois,HR Advisor Recruiting

Liselore explains: We already had a recog­ni­tion programme before we started working with Kadonation, because this is something we think is very important. We used to give a gift voucher specif­i­cal­ly for one shop. But the ordering, invoicing and delivery took up a lot of time.

Thanks to the Kadonation Select gift platform, it only takes a few clicks for me to send gift vouchers to our employees, and completely in the White and Yellow Cross branding. It’s precisely because of this user-friend­li­ness that we’ve been able to even expand our recog­ni­tion programme! The platform takes away all the admin­is­tra­tive hassle. All our orders and invoices are now easy to find in one place.”

Sofie adds: When showing our appre­ci­a­tion for our employees, we mainly look at the important life events, like a wedding, newborn, retirement, reaching a certain number of years of service in our organ­i­sa­tion, etc. Since we’ve been working with Kadonation Select, we can now give our employees an extra little gift on even more occasions. Kadonation is a real added value for our organ­i­sa­tion. Especially now that Kadonation also includes physical gifts in its range.

We have already ordered flowers through the platform on a number of occasions. To make our employees feel special, of course, but also for funerals, because we want to be there for our employees even during the difficult moments.”

A suitable gift for every occasion

Diana echoes how much her employer looks after its employees, and feels very appre­ci­at­ed in her job. On top of the appre­ci­a­tion I get from my patients, I regularly receive a heartfelt thank you and a gift from management, which I think is fantastic. When I celebrated my 5th anniver­sary at the White and Yellow Cross, I received a Kadonation Gift Voucher, which was a wonderful surprise!

I think it’s a great gift because I get to choose from lots of different shops. So I’m sure to find something I’ll like.” 
- Diana Monarque, Nurse

Sofie sees the added value of Kadonation for any organ­i­sa­tion wanting to show their appre­ci­a­tion for their employees on those occasions that matter. Because Kadonation gives employees enormous freedom of choice and is quick and simple for the employer. So really a win-win for both giver and receiver.”

Thank you for your kind words Sofie, Liselore and Diana!
