The BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg has been awarded for the 4th time the prestigious
“Top Employer Luxembourg” certification for outstanding working conditions.

Every year the Top Employers Institute, a globally renowned independent organisation, certifies companies providing excellent working conditions that foster employees’ personal development. This year, following an assessment by an independent auditor, the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg once again received this distinction. For the sixth year in a row, BNP Paribas has also received the “Top Employers Europe” label, with certification for 6 countries: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland and Turkey.

In Luxembourg, particularly high marks were awarded for three of the audit criteria which even improved compared to 2018: integration of new staff, workforce planning as well as management and leadership development.

Commenting, Louis de Looz, Head of Human Resources at the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg, said: “We are proud to confirm our status as Top Employer for the fourth year in a row. This award reflects our commitment to acting as a responsible employer. It also recognises how we consistently strive to offer our staff many varied opportunities to learn and grow within an exemplary working environment that prizes respect and team spirit. We believe that happy employees make happy clients. As such, we want all of our staff to have a positive experience of working with us and for our clients.”

Being the bank for a changing world means focusing on the future, readying ourselves for the challenges that lie ahead, and being a driver of innovation. That is why the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg seeks to provide employees with a superior working environment that is open and inspiring and that allows everybody to play their part in the process of change.
