Special For​ces Mindset Insights

My Mind Premium's first keynote video has been available since April and is not only inspiring, but also leaves a lasting impression.

Rob Vliegen, known to the public as Instructor Fly from the television programme 'Kamp Waes' gives his novel take on resilience and how it can be trained in the keynote 'Resilience unleashed: Fly on the Special Forces mentality'. 

​What is resilience?
Resilience is the ability to bounce back after setbacks and adapt to stress or negative experiences in a positive way, thereby maintaining or regaining performance and mental well-being.

Rob Vliegen started his career in the Special Forces in 1991. There, he learned that with the necessary perseverance, he can overcome any problem. He shares his experience with us in an engaging and in-depth talk.

Prevention is no luxury

In Belgium, nearly half a million workers have been unable to work for more than a year, a third of them due to mental disorders such as burnout and depression (source: INAMI/RIZIV). A sobering figure that unfortunately continues to rise steadily.

However, there is indeed a link between employee well-being and a company's profitability. According to a very recent study by GraydonCreditsafe and Securex, companies with no employees on long-term sick leave are 1.4 times more productive than those with the highest sickness rates. So, companies with no burnouts can make up to 40 per cent more profit.

As a result, engaging in prevention in terms of mental well-being in your company is crucial. It is high time we all turn the tide on mental health.

Did you know...

  • Since 1 April 2024, as an employer you have to contribute EUR 1,800 to the Back to Work Fund when you terminate the contract of an employee incapacitated due to medical force majeure. 
  • Moreover, if the absenteeism rate in your company is too high, you are likely to risk a fine of up to 2.5% of the total wage bill and have to provide additional training days.

Altogether, this constitutes a considerable budget that you are much better off spending on prevention.
