Wallonia has human resources that offer a genuine goldmine for companies setting up in the Region!

In terms of staff recruitment, a series of measures allows companies to reduce their salary costs and find training courses particularly adapted to their activities.

qualified human resources


The percentage of qualified human resources in Belgium is among the highest in the world: 1/4 of people of working age have at least one higher education diploma.

This is also completed by a high level of multilingualism owing in particular to the country's central position at the heart of three major Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and Latin cultures.

Language skills


The productivity in the industrial sector in Belgium is among the highest in Europe and, in particular, is ahead of Germany, France and the United Kingdom.


In collaboration with FOREM, we are here to help you hire qualified staff or to design tailor-made training adapted to your specific needs. We are also able to provide you with a complete simulation of the employment aids from which your company may benefit during its development in Wallonia, or to help you obtain advice about hiring workers from outside the Economic Area.



Schools and university centres

Courses are provided in no fewer than the 130 higher education training centres and 9 universities (grouped into three academies) spread out over the entire region.

Skills centres

Skills centres are places that provide expertise for the training of the workers of the future. They ensure training, information and awareness-raising for workers, job seekers, students, teachers, company directors and executives, and help to support the competitiveness of companies. Wallonia currently has 24 Skills Centres managed by Forem.

Research centres

Recognised research centres constitute skills centres in their respective technological fields and are privileged stakeholders for companies wishing to improve their procedures or develop a new product.
