Bureau Veritas certified as a top employer for the ninth year running!

Jan. 25 2021

Leading testing, inspection and certification firm Bureau Veritas has been officially recognised by Top Employers Institute as a Top Employer 2021 in the United Kingdom, for the ninth consecutive year.

The award means Bureau Veritas is one of very few UK organisations to be certified for its exceptional standard of employee conditions for almost a decade.

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR topics, with businesses assessed against criteria such as Talent Strategy, Culture, Talent Acquisition, Learning and Development, Compensation and Benefits, Leadership Development and more.

Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work and exhibits this through excellent HR policies and people practices that make a difference.

Commenting on what it means to be a Top Employer, Katie White, HR Director at Bureau Veritas, said: “I am so pleased that Bureau Veritas has once again been recognised as one of the UK’s top employers, and for the ninth year in a row. This year has been particularly difficult for all businesses but at Bureau Veritas we continually focus on our people and striving to make this a great place to work. I am particularly proud that we have continued to invest and put more support in place for mental health and wellbeing, training and strong focus on talent management and retention. I genuinely believe that when people are engaged in their work, this has huge benefits for the business, our clients, but most of all for our employees.

“I’m looking forward to 2021 where we can build on many of the initiatives we have started in 2020, working collaboratively with our teams to create more exciting opportunities and ensure Bureau Veritas remains a workplace of choice for both current and future employees.”

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), Bureau Veritas has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”

This year, the programme has certified and recognised more than 1,600 Top Employers in 120 countries/regions across five continents.
