Umicore has been designated Top Employer in Belgium for the twelfth time

Regional website Belgium

This year again, we have received Top Employer certification. With its annual international survey, the Top Employers Institute recognises exemplary employers all over the world who provide excellent working conditions, who nourish and develop talent at every level of the organisation, and who constantly aim to optimise their employment practices. Umicore has been awarded Top Employer certification for the twelfth time in Belgium.

Geert Walschap, HR Director Belgium and Northern Europe:

“This is the twelfth time we have received Top Employer certification.  We are getting so used to it that we barely notice.  This is unfair!   I think we should all be proud of this result.  It demonstrates the importance that we at Umicore place on the engagement of our people.  And it is these engaged employees who deliver innovation and satisfied customers, and who are essential to the further growth of Umicore and the realisation of the Horizon 2020 objectives!”
