Home appliance giant, Electrolux UK, has announced that it has achieved certification as a Top Employer for 2017.
The award is highly sought-after, as it is considered a mark of excellence for employee conditions, nurturing and developing talent at all levels, and striving to improve employment practises.
It is bestowed by the Top Employers Institute, which has been recognising excellence for 25 years. It has one methodology across 116 countries with 1,239 certified organisations.
The institute assessed Electrolux’s employee offerings on the following criteria:
The institute commented on the company’s achievements on its website:
“Our comprehensive, independent research revealed that Electrolux UK provides exceptional employee conditions, nurtures and develops talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and has demonstrated its leadership status in the HR environment, always striving to optimise its employment practices and to develop its employees.”
Peter Spencer, General Manager UK & Ireland, Electrolux Major Appliances, said of the honour:
“For many years we have used the TNS Employee Engagement Survey to understand how engaged our employees feel, and this has helped us focus our efforts. However, we felt the time was right to benchmark ourselves externally as a UK Employer, hence why we put ourselves forward to be audited by the Top Employers Institute. The Top Employers Institute is a highly regarded, long established and global organisation. The journey to gaining certification is a lengthy, thorough and rigorous process. For us to have achieved Top Employer Certification, across all Electrolux UK entities, on our first submission, is a great honour.”
