Hermina Van Coillie obtained a PhD in 2004 at the KULeuven (Quantitative and Personality Psychology). After 2 years as a post-doctoral researcher at the KUL, she started as a research expert in the Securex study center, HR Research in 2006 .
She has written several white papers, reports, press releases, scientific articles, and often appears in the national and regional press. She is a much sought after speaker and often gives lectures, workshops, guest lectures and master classes on her research topics.
These activities and publications are all linked to the sustainable employability of employees: “How can we keep everyone working in a respectful way with passion and meaningfulness for as long as possible?”
In recent years she has specialized in topics such as aging and working longer, burn-out, bore-out, well-being, mobility, flexibility, time and place-independent work, work addiction, work-life balance, part-time work, motivation in the workplace and leadership. For this, she often relies on scientific self-determination theory.
