For the second year in a row, AkzoNobel has been rated as a European Top Employer by the Top Employers Institute.

AkzoNobel has been ranked among the European Top Employer by Top Employers Institute, which certifies organizations who every year are focused on putting people first through their HR policies. In the latest benchmark review, the company was recognized in eight countries: Brazil, China, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK and the US – all with repeat certifications. AkzoNobel qualifies as a European Top Employer because five of the certified countries are in Europe.

The latest 2023 rating marks the second consecutive certification for AkzoNobel in France, Germany and Sweden, the fourth for the Netherlands and the US, the seventh for Brazil, the tenth for China and the 11th for the UK.

“In a year when many external developments impacted our focus, achieving eight certifications shows that we’re on the right track. It’s something to be proud of and we’re all keen to maintain this momentum going forward”, says Jöelle Boxus, AkzoNobel’s Chief Human Resources Officer.

“We ran several people-driven initiatives during 2022 designed to help our employees thrive and build their capabilities,” adds Boxus. “They focused on several key areas to ensure that we continue to create a diverse and inclusive environment which respects cultural differences and offers opportunities for personal development. With People. Planet. Paint. at the heart of everything we do, we’re committed to helping all our employees be the best they can be.”
