AkzoNobel has been named a Top Employer in Europe once again
Akzo Nobel N.V.
For the second year in a row, the Top Employers Institute has recognized AkzoNobel as one of Europe's Top Employers.
In the most recent benchmark review, the company was honored in eight countries, all of which were repeat certifications: Brazil, China, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. Because five of the certified countries are located in Europe, AkzoNobel has earned the distinction of being a European Top Employer.
“In a year when many external developments impacted our focus, achieving eight certifications shows that we’re on the right track,” says Jöelle Boxus, AkzoNobel’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “It’s something to be proud of and we’re all keen to maintain this momentum going forward.”
The Top Employers Institute gives out certifications on an annual basis to businesses that prioritize the well-being of their employees by way of their HR practices. The survey covers six HR domains totaling twenty topics, some of which include diversity and inclusion, learning, and well-being in addition to people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, and learning.
“We ran several people-driven initiatives during 2022 designed to help our employees thrive and build their capabilities,” adds Boxus. “They focused on several key areas to ensure that we continue to create a diverse and inclusive environment which respects cultural differences and offers opportunities for personal development. With People. Planet. Paint. at the heart of everything we do, we’re committed to helping all our employees be the best they can be.”
The most recent 2023 rating is the second certification in a row for AkzoNobel in the countries of France, Germany, and Sweden. It is also the fourth certification for the countries of the Netherlands and the United States, the seventh certification for Brazil, the tenth certification for China, and the 11th certification for the United Kingdom.
