Umicore Belgium receives Top Employer recognition for the 13th time

Regional website Belgium

Umicore is proud to announce that it has been certified for the 13th time as one of the Top Employers in Belgium, recognised as providing excellent employee conditions, nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and striving to continuously optimise employment practices.

Crucial to the Top Employers Certification is the completion of a stringent international process, and meeting the required HR standards in order to achieve the exclusive Top Employers België/Belgique 2018 Certification. In other words, Umicore provides an outstanding employment environment, and was highly rated on talent strategy, learning & development, compensation & benefits, performance management, leadership development, career & succession management, and company culture among other criteria.

Geert Walschap, HR Director Western & Southern Europe, commented:

“ We have received the Top Employer certificate for the thirteenth time. A unique achievement, with the highest scores for ‘talent strategy’ and ‘company culture’. Magnificent recognition for the two themes that have been worked hard on and that are really important for meeting the challenges of a highly competitive labour market.

It is our ambition to further strengthen commitment amongst our employees. Together with several BU managers we defined six anchor points:

recognition, solidarity, orientation, authenticity, self-development and trust. They form a compass and a solid foundation for our future HR policy!”
