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."
