Everything we achieve, we owe to our people.

Our people are our greatest asset. That's why one of imec's main priorities is to recognize and reward your efforts and engagement. We reward with a total rewards package that reflects the total value imec offers in exchange for your time, effort, and talent. It consists, on top of a competitive salary, of a wide range of other interesting benefits.


"Imec offers a wide range of mobility solutions to encourage me to choose for any green form of transport. Think for instance of leasing a bike, the accompanying bike allowance, the reimbursement of your bus/train subscription, free charging for electric bikes and cars. Imec enables me to make a sustainable choice."


The total cash package is more than just the monthly pay (incl. shift premiums if applicable), vacation pay and year-end premium. It is supplemented by other tax-optimized cash rewards such as meal vouchers or a collective bonus. Next to that, it also contains a top-notch pension plan that will safeguard your financials when you retire. The imec pension plan is amongst the best 15% in the market and is entirely paid by imec (no employee contribution).

Health & well-being

Imec truly cares about the health & well-being of its employees. Imec’s hospitalization plan, disability insurance and life insurance are designed to protect you and your family from financial risk in case of hospitalization or long-term absence. Imec also makes sure that your pension plan continues to be funded when absent for a long time, and that the life insurance is maintained. Next to these insurances, imec adds other offerings to safeguard your health and well-being such as a regular health check and the employee assistance program, which enables you to talk to professional counselors to receive guidance on work-related or personal difficulties.


Imec’s rewards package is not just focused on the employee, but also aims to support your family and loved ones. Your partner and child(ren) can join imec's hospitalization plan for free and they also enjoy the many discounts in multiple stores via the Samenaankoop offering and/or other partnerships. Moreover, if you work at imec Leuven, your youngest children receive priority at the daycare center De Villa and their older siblings can go to the holiday daycare organized by imec and Ferm Kinderopvang in the summer months (the latter also available in Ghent). You enjoy an interesting rate here, due to partial intervention by imec


Also, by offering various development and career opportunities (imec academy trainings, internal mobility, ...), you can learn, grow and develop your knowledge and skills to your hearts content and be the best version of yourself.

Working conditions

All of the above in a smart and digital workplace, both at imec and at home. A monthly fixed internet allowance of €20 covers the necessary internet costs and a home office support offer encourages and financially supports you to set up a home office in a healthy and ergonomic way. Some employees, linked to certain jobs and roles, are also eligible for a mobile phone and subscription.

Recognition & social impact

Finally, the many recognition initiatives (e.g.: the ‘recognize every contribution’-initiative, referral bonus, inventor incentive, ....) and considering that we as imec employees are all part of a first-rate innovation hub with major social impact, complete our total rewards package.

Some of these benefits can even be tailored. Think for example of the leasing bike, but you can also choose to swap part of your salary for extra vacation days. This way, you can customize the total rewards package to your needs.
