Edward Elliott, HR Director UK, Ireland and the Nordics at AkzoNobel, comments: “To have been recognised for our focus on colleague development, engagement and wellbeing for ten years in a row is an outstanding achievement that we are incredibly proud of. It shows our continued dedication to making AkzoNobel a brilliant place to work and creating a culture that supports people in their work and wellbeing. This means making every effort to further improve our organisational health and to ensure everyone feels listened to.
“Being officially recognised as a Top Employer underlines the value and strength of our people-focused campaigns, which, in 2021, included Wellfest – a month-long virtual wellness festival designed to support colleagues’ health and wellbeing during lockdown.”
AkzoNobel as a global business has been recognised in a total of eight countries, with repeat certifications in Brazil, China, the Netherlands, the UK and the US, as well as three new titles in France, Germany and Sweden, meaning the company can also be classed as a European Top Employer due to its certification in five European countries.
“We’ve put People. Planet. Paint. at the heart of everything we do and have an unwavering commitment to investing in people and people-driven initiatives. We’re growing together, building our capabilities and doing everything we can to remain at the forefront of our industry,” concludes Edward.
