ABB is one of just 84 other organisations in the UK, who have been awarded this status.
David Hughes, Country Managing Director, ABB UK said: "Receiving top employer status is testament to the dedication of all our team who make ABB in the UK, a warm, inclusive and rewarding place to work. One of our goals is to make STEM careers accessible and an attractive career path for everyone - certifications like top employer help us reach new audiences and communicate that message."
The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. The survey covers 6 HR domains consisting of 20 topics including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being and Diversity & Inclusion and more. The information is then validated and audited independently to ensure the integrity of the processes and data.
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organisations across the world, ABB has continued to show that it prioritises maintaining excellent people practices in the workplace. They continue to meet the challenges of the changing world of work while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of their workforce. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the organisations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”
Over the last 5 years the company has implemented several leading people development programmes, including a First Line Manager development initiative, apprenticeship scheme, graduate programme and a UK wide wellbeing strategy. As part of its continued journey to sustain Top Employer status, ABB UK is entering the second year of its two-year project, to transform and implement a new digital HR landscape of tools and processes, for its employees and managers.
