Technip was awarded this week with the Top Employer Europe 2012 certifification, the France-based engineering and construction company said on Wednesday.
Delivered by the CRF Institute, the independent certification underlines the quality of Technips human resources (HR) policies and the consistent working conditions offered to its employees, the company said.
The outstanding HR policies and practices that Top Employers such as Technip offer their staff show they regard talent management as a top priority, said David Plink, CEO of the CRF Institute.
They provide their employees not just with the things that interest them now, but also those that will prepare them for their next career step within the organization, Plink added. Top Employers clearly show that they appreciate and foster their employees.
The CRF Institute, a specialist in the field of international research into HR management and working conditions, recently completed this years research into the HR policies and practices of a large number of employers across all European countries.
The organizations examined were assessed based on criteria including primary and secondary benefits and working conditions, training and development, career development, and company culture.
This year, nine organizations received the special award, identifying them as high achievers in HR excellence. To get certification, organizations were required to be successfully achieving the criteria set in a minimum of five European countries.
Technip said it was successfully certified as a Top Employer Europe in nine countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.
All over the world, our HR teams are striving to stimulate the [companys] talents, helping our people to reach their maximum potential, regardless of their origin, gender or age, said Thierry Parmentier, Technips human resources director.
We are also committed to maintain a safe and comfortable working environment, fostering employees welfare. The Top Employers Europe 2012 certification is proof that we are on the right tracks to become a Reference as an employer.
