AkzoNobel has been recognised as a Top Employer in the UK

AkzoNobel, the leading paints and coatings business, has today been recognised as a Top Employer in the UK by the Top Employers Institute for the 12th consecutive year.

The Top Employers Institute programme highlights and celebrates organisations dedicated to a better working world, as judged by their commitment to best-in-class HR practices and people policies. The HR Best Practices Survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Wellbeing and more.

AkzoNobel’s people first approach, alongside its commitment to sustainability as a business and engaging HR initiatives, demonstrating its outstanding dedication to colleagues, were highly regarded by the Top Employers Institute.

AkzoNobel continues to make strides in achieving its sustainability goals and is a recognised sustainability leader in the industry, outperforming its peer average across numerous sustainability rating bodies. These include: being the only paints and coatings company with an AAA rating in MSCI; being listed in the top 1% of all companies assessed by EcoVadis; and receiving a low risk rating by Sustainalytics

Some of our key initiatives include Thrive, AkzoNobel’s wellbeing programme, which is created by colleagues, for colleagues. It is led by a group of colleagues who want to create their own networks and drive their own agendas, covering everything from diversity, equality and inclusion to mental health support and physical health advice. These have gone from strength to strength, with eight networks across the business in the UK.
