BSH Home Appliances named Top Employer for sixth consecutive year

BSH has been recognised as a Top Employer for 2021 by the Top Employers Institute – this is the sixth consecutive year the manufacturer has earned this status.

Top Employers are organisations of the highest calibre that have worked hard to create and implement their people strategies. Through strategic and thoughtful workplace programmes, they have created an environment that empowers and develops employees.

The certification recognises employers that have dedicated themselves to providing the very best working environment for employees through progressive ‘people-first’ HR practices. Each company awarded Top Employer status goes through a rigorous analysis of its human resources management and employee conditions.

The Best Practice Survey companies take part in encompasses over 100 questions covering a range of topics including; learning and development, career and succession management, and talent strategy and acquisition. The Top Employers Institute then evaluates the implementation of these practices and reviews how they are supported through strategy, ownership, practices, management and technology.

Gunjan Srivastava, CEO of BSH Home Appliances, the home of Bosch, NEFF, Siemens and Gaggenau brands, said: “We are delighted to be one of a select number of UK organisations to be rated as a Top Employer. To be recognised for the sixth year running after a challenging year in the industry is something we are extremely proud of.

“In 2020 we became the first company in our industry to hold this title for five consecutive years and we are so pleased to carry this over for another year.

“We continue to put a key focus on the development of employees here at BSH and to have this work recognised by the Top Employers Institute is testament to the hard work of everyone at the company.”

This comes after Whirlpool UK was also named the Top Employer in the UK – for the fourth consecutive year.

The Hotpoint, Indesit, Whirlpool and KitchenAid parent company was certified by the Top Employer Institute for 2021. In addition, Whirlpool EMEA was also awarded Top Employer Europe.
