BSH certified as a UK top employer

BSH has been awarded with the Top Employers Europe 2016 Certification.

The owner of brands such as Bosch, Neff, Seimens and Gaggenau, was recognised by the Top Employers Institute for its “exceptional employee offerings in the UK”.

The annual, international research recognises leading employers around the world, in particular those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and strive to continuously optimise employment practices.

To be recognised for the Top Employers Certification, companies are assessed on HR policies and procedures for talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning & development, performance management, leadership development, career & succession management, compensation & benefits, and culture.

Dennis Utter, global business director for the Top Employers Institute, said: “Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that BSH Home Appliances provides an outstanding employment environment, and offers a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programmes that are well thought out, and truly aligned with the culture of its company.”

Manfred Normann, chief financial officer, BSH Home Appliances, said: “It is fantastic to be recognized for our employee offering within the first year. We recognise and value all of our 1100 employees across the UK and Ireland. We are delighted we scored highly for our workforce planning, leadership development, performance, management and culture. While the Certification Seal is a great accolade it also enables us to benchmark our offering against other companies and provides inspiration on how we can continue to improve our employee environment and engagement for the future. We are committed to develop and work to become an even better employer.”

Andreas Meier, chief executive, BSH Home Appliances, said: “We are the only home appliance company to be recognised this year and this is a considerable achievement.”
