We're a Top Employer!

We’re delighted to be recognised as a ‘Top Employer Europe’ for a third successive year in 2020.

Country-level certifications have been granted to our operations in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, the UK and – for the first time – Belgium and Italy.

Our business in Taiwan has also been named a Top Employer 2020, taking the number of certified Imperial subsidiaries this year to a record high 12.

Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in the conditions that businesses create for their people.

Companies participating in its prestigious certification programme have the potential to gain ‘Top Employer’ status following a comprehensive analysis of people development practices.

The Institute’s analysis covers 600 practices across ten areas: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits and Culture. 

Group HR Director, Gert Schrijver, said: “It's fantastic that Imperial has been recognised with the Top Employer certification in so many of our locations.

“This achievement validates our hard work to continuously improve our HR policies and procedures and cements our status as a leading employer.

“I look forward to more of our markets joining the Top Employer network in the coming year to further increase our global coverage.”
