BESIX qualified as Belgian Top Employer 2023

17 January 2023

On Tuesday 17 January the Top Employer Institute awarded BESIX Group the certification as Belgian Top Employer for the fourth time in a row. Each year, the organisation certifies companies worldwide where working conditions are outstanding, workers are stimulated to develop their talents and where equity and inclusion are a reality in the company’s culture. BESIX is proud to count among the Top Employers in Belgium once again.

The label was awarded after an in-depth analysis of BESIX’s HR and people practices, focusing on a variety of themes including people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, diversity, equity & inclusion, wellbeing and more. It’s an acknowledgement of BESIX’s efforts to help shape a better work environment. It shows the company's commitment to excellent HR policies and people practices, putting people first. The label is a recognition of the work already accomplished and at the same time an encouraging signal to continue in the right direction.

Pierre Sironval, CEO BESIX Group: “BESIX is proud to be recognized as one of Belgium's Top Employers for the fourth consecutive year. Our scores in areas such as talent development, work environment, wellbeing, diversity, and inclusion have improved even more than last year, demonstrating BESIX's commitment to these values in our culture. With a diverse range of professions and talents within our team and global operations in various countries and projects, BESIX embraces diversity in every aspect of our group.”
