In this field of the protection of interests also lies the function of promoting the proper use and correct writing within the WF systems.
The Council encourages the distribution of the WF systems “all over the world” and specifically in the Benelux, particularly the Dutch speaking part.

To be able to manage the financial and material matters more adequately, in order to better guarantee the continuity of the activities of the WORK-FACTOR Council, on March 26th 2008 a foundation was established by the members of the WORK-FACTOR Council named Work-Study Foundation, Platform for Work-Factor Users and registered at the Chamber of Commerce under nr. 172.23044.
The goal of the foundation is
a. maintaining and promoting the use of Work-Factor systems in Work-Study analyses, especially in the Benelux and
particularly in the Dutch speaking part.
b. perpetrating all other actions related with the above stated under a. in the most widely used sense or could be positive for
that same purpose
Boardmembers of the foundation are the members of the WORK-FACTOR Council at that moment.
The secretariat of the foundation is the same as the secretariat of the WORK-FACTOR Council, see below.
The WS Foundation was dissolved as per July 1st 2020.
Since the WFGD e.V. ceased its activities per 1-1-2012 their competences, authority and teaching qualification are transferred to the Work-Study Foundation. The WF activities for the German speaking WF users are put into effect and guaranteed by the WFR and WFGD.
The (board)members of the WS Foundation, the WF Council and the WFGD are seasoned staff from industry, from management consulting businesses and/or are independent adviser. They all have a vast practical experience in the field of work study and business economics at various companies with a lot of processes.

Questions regarding information on organizations and bureaus that offer Work-Factor products or products with Work-Factor products as parts, or questions regarding teachers and instructors giving lectures in (one of the) Work-Factor systems, may be addressed to the secretariat.
The "WFC membership" is not quite a membership in the sense of a membership of a society. The WORK-FACTOR Council is an independent platform or council of the WS Foundation. It is not a foundation or society with full capacity for rights.
The WFC keeps a register of Work-Factor analysts, inwhich certified analysts are recorded. Members of the WFC are analysts recorded in the “Register of Analysts” of the WFC plus WF contactpersons of companies. At this moment the Benelux register contains about 600 names and the International register holds about 100 names. To the Council are known about 100 names with their email address. All WFC “members” have access to the WF website and through that access to WF information and news. Moreover, the ca 100 “active WFC members” receive regularly further WF infomation via email or will be informed via the website for further information.
The membership of the WORK-FACTOR Council is free.
One may apply for “WFC membership” by sending an e-mail application to the secretariat; possibly provided with information on the WF system used, the WF system certified on and the date of certification.
Personal data of WF-course paticipants, analists and company contact staff members like name, date of birth and place, company name and - address, (company) telephone number and business e-mailaddress, solely for personification of certificate, diploma or attestation and work-study or business economic support for individual and department, will not be shared with or given to third parties.
The revenues of the Foundation, benificiary to the WFC, mainly come from the revenues from granting WF licences and rights plus possibly extra income from activities like WF courses and WF trainings.
The expenditures are mainly the costs of guarding and protecting Work-Factor names and logo’s. The costs of the Council desk are nill, besides the costs for administration of justice and domain costs, because the boardmembers participate on a voluntary basis.
