Liverpool Store Teams
Celebrate Top Employer Certification
THE store teams at Dulux Decorator
Centre across the United Kingdom are celebrating after AkzoNobel's Decorative
Paints UK have been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for
exceptional employee offerings.
As part of AkzoNobel Decorative Paint UK, which includes the store network of
188 Dulux Decorator Centres, the 'super brand' Dulux and the beloved
Dulux dog, is proud to have been recognised by the Top Employers Institute for
the 5th year running.
The annual international research undertaken by the Institute assesses leading
employers globally on several factors, including excellent employee conditions;
nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and
striving to continuously optimising employment practices.
North West Regional Manager, Martin Sagar, comments on the certification:-
"Our store teams are extremely proud to be awarded with the prestigious
status. It's testament to their hard work, talent and commitment to personal
development, supported by the company. We hope to continue to build on our
strengths and look for ways to continue to improve, and ensure we retain this
award in the future."
Responding to this year's results, Brian Chapman, AkzoNobel HR Director UK and
Ireland, said:- "We're delighted to achieve the Top Employers United
Kingdom certification again. At AkzoNobel we have a huge opportunity to achieve
things previously unimagined but we believe we can only win and accelerate
growth if we harness the strength, talent and commitment of our people; together
we can be unstoppable. It's this drive to succeed which makes us focus on
nurturing our employees to make sure we can offer them the best. We talk a lot
about the fact we can only grow our business as fast as we grow our people.
But unlike some organisations we walk the talk. We are committed to
developing all our people to help them achieve their full potential;
professionally and personally."
Crucial to the Top Employers Certification is the completion of a stringent
research process, and meeting the required standard in order to achieve the
Certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers
were independently audited, meaning this research has verified the AkzoNobel's
outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a select
group of certified Companies.
James Gooding, UK Country Manager for the Top Employers Institute:-
"Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves
personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that AkzoNobel provides an outstanding employment environment and offers a wide range
of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to
performance management programmes that are well thought out and truly aligned
with the culture of their company."
