Overview of personal benefits for UT employees
We offer not only an excellent salary in line with market rates, but also a secondary benefits package that includes an optional model of employement allowing individual customisation. Examine which employment conditions suit you best. Below is a selection of what we offer.
- Optional Model for Employment Conditions
Using the Optional Model for Employment Conditions, you can exchange employment conditions for other purposes, such as buying bicycle, extra holiday hours or extra salary.
- Travel and accommodation
The UT has arrangements with regard to travel and accommodation:
- Travel allowance for commuting to and from work
- Relocation allowance
- Leave in the event of relocation upon commencement of employment (or compulsory relocation)
- Allowance for temporary accommodation
In addition, employees receive allowances in connection with working from home:
- Internet allowance for the internet connection at home
- Work from home allowance for the days you work from home
If it's possible in your position, the UT offers possibilities for hybrid working. In this context, the UT offers facilities for a home workplace.
The UT also has standard reimbursements for business travel.
- Training and Development
As standard, every UT employee has (at least) two (from 2024 onwards: three) personal development days each year, to spend on their development/training within the scope of Recognition and Rewards and/or continuing employability. There are study facilities, an internal training offer, but also access to online courses such as Good Habitz and Futurelearn. For more information, see; A quickstart to development possibilities page.
- Working hours
By default, you work 40 hours with full-time employment. Alternatively, you can choose a 36 or 38 hours work week. In addition, you can deviate from the standard working hours in consultation with your manager.
If you work part-time, make sure your working pattern is listed in MyHR/Afas correctly. This is important for holiday hours and other calculations like the home working allowance. You can adjust the working pattern via MyHR/Afas > “change working pattern”.
- Work-life balance / leave
The UT offers employees a number of options for a good work-life balance:
- Leave types: care leave, parental leave, birth leave, educational leave, sabbatical, etc
- Vitality Pact
- Long-term savings or purchasing extra leave hours via the employment conditions options model
In addition, as an employee you can decide (in consultation with your manager) whether or not you want to work more or less temporarily.
- Work and health
Because the UT attaches great value to the vitality of its employees, there are a number of facilities in this area:
The UT has taken out a number of collective insurance policies for employees:
- Collective health insurance (including the option for a World Wide Clause when working abroad temporarily)
- Collective incapacity insurance
- Surviving dependants' insurance (ANW shortfall)

- Incapacity pension
- Net pension (>100.000 Euro)

In addition, retirees can continue to make use of the collective health insurance with Menzis. With GEWIS, the UT has an association for retired employees, which organises many activities for pensioners.
