“Top Employer” certification awarded to BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg for the third year running

February 9, 2018

The BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg has been awarded the prestigious “Top Employer Luxembourg 2018” 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. The BNP Paribas Group was also certified at the national level in Italy, Belgium, Poland, Turkey, France and Spain (Cetelem), thus obtaining the “Top Employer Europe 2018” label.

In Luxembourg, particularly high marks were awarded for four of the audit criteria which even improved compared to 2017: workforce planning, talent strategy, learning and development, and career management.

Commenting, Patrick Gregorius, Head of Human Resources at the BNP Paribas Group in Luxembourg, said: “We are particularly proud to have been awarded the Top Employer Luxembourg certification once again, and even more so to have improved our results compared to last year. This seal of approval is a reward for our continuous efforts to create a positive working environment for our employees and thus ensure a high level of client satisfaction, as we firmly believe that happy employees make happy 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.
