Umicore once more certified as a Top Employer in Belgium, France and Germany

Umicore is proud to announce that it has once again been awarded the Top Employer certification in Belgium, France and Germany. Umicore achieved good scores in many areas and Umicore in Belgium was praised in particular for its talent strategy, learning & development opportunities and its performance management approach. In France, career & succession management through specific knowledge retention programmes as well as Umicore’s mentoring initiatives received particular recognition.

 The annual, international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. Umicore received the Top Employer recognition for the 12th time in Belgium, for the 7th time in France and for the 6th time in Germany.

 Top Employer certification demands completion of a stringent research process and audit in order to meet the required standards. The Top Employers Institute assessed Umicore’s employee offerings on criteria such as talent strategy, workforce planning, welcoming new employees, learning & development, performance management, leadership development, career & succession management, compensation & benefits and company culture. The Top Employers Institute concluded that Umicore provides an outstanding employment environment, and offers a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programmes that are well thought out and truly aligned with the culture of the company.

 Ignace de Ruijter, Senior Vice-President Human Resources, commented: “To realise our strategic goals, we count on almost 10,000 talented and committed colleagues worldwide. The Top Employer certification is a recognition for our company, our human resources teams and all our colleagues who make Umicore a great place to work.”
