Group Global 2 min read

On Thursday 20 January the Top Employer Institute awarded BESIX Group the certification as Belgian Top Employer for the third time in a row. Each year, the organisation certifies organisations worldwide where working conditions are outstanding, workers are stimulated to develop their talents and a continuous drive to improve working environments is present. BESIX is proud to be counted among the Top Employers in Belgium once again.

The label was awarded after an in-depth analysis of our HR and people practices, focussing on a variety of themes including leadership development, diversity & inclusion, values, business strategy, learning, etc. It’s an acknowledgement of BESIX’s efforts to help shape a better work environment. It shows the company's commitment to realising this change through excellent HR policy and people practices, putting people first. BESIX applies the ‘#WeCare’-principle, focusing on the development and well-being of its employees.

The label is a recognition of the work of the recent years and at the same time an encouraging signal to continue in the right direction.

Pierre Sironval, Deputy CEO BESIX Group: "We are proud that BESIX is among the Belgian Top Employers, for the third time in a row. Similarly to last year, we again obtained remarkable scores on elements such as diversity, openness and inclusion, which shows that BESIX embraces diversity in all its dimensions. Diversity at BESIX can be found in the many different professions and talents we are fortunate to have on board, in the many countries where we are present around the globe, as well as in the very diverse nature of our projects."
Geert Aelbrecht, Chief People Officer BESIX Group: “I'm very proud that BESIX Group has again been awarded the Belgian Top Employer certificate from Top Employers Institute. This award shows that we strive to get better each year, to remain the best possible employer. Our employees, our social partners, our stakeholders and our clients make this happen, every day again. This recognition motivates us every day to create and maintain a work environment that is conducive to harmony and development. Congratulations also to all other companies recognized as Top Employers. All together, we participate to the creation of a global work environment where respect reigns.”
David Plink, CEO of the Top Employers Institute: “Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organisations across the world, BESIX Group 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.”
