Proudly Certified: AkzoNobel attains Top Employer for 2021

Amsterdam, Netherlands — AkzoNobel’s focus on engagement and employee well-being has paid off, as the company has received Top Employer certification in five markets: The United Kingdom, China, Brazil, United States, and the Netherlands. 

“Focusing on employee well-being, engagement and development have helped ensure our continued success through all the unprecedented challenges in 2020,” said Joëlle Boxes, AkzoNobel’s chief HR officer. “It’s all about making sure our employees feel included and listened to, while also enabling them to bring their best selves to work every day. We’re growing together and building our capabilities so we’re ready for the future.” 

Throughout the company’s three-year ongoing transformation journey, AkzoNobel’s success in retaining and adding Top Employer countries, comes down to its prioritization heath, said a spokesperson. 

The latest Top Employer certification marks the second year in a row for the Netherlands and the U.S., fifth for Brazil, eighth for China, and nine for the U.K. The review by the Top Employers Institute benchmarks companies around the world against best practices in human resources. 

Holding onto all five Top Employee titles demonstrates AkzoNobel’s strong commitment to investing in people and people-driven initiatives. 

AkzoNobel created several key initiatives to help support employees in 2020. 

The Mind Matters health and well-being program helped employees cope with “the new normal” created by the pandemic. 

The company also made significant progress in its diversity and inclusion commitments through training, virtual broadcasts, and the growth of employee networks. 

Despite global uncertainty, employees remain highly engaged. Surveys reveal a significant improvement in “organizational health,” with 87 percent of employees indicating that they care about the company, and 86 percent willing to put in more effort than expected to help AkzoNobel be successful.
