The 2022 Top Employers have been announced and Wolseley UK has been recognised.
The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. The survey covers six key HR areas consisting of 20 topics including: people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, wellbeing, diversity & inclusion, and more.
Top Employers Institute chief executive David Plink said: “Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organisations across the world, Wolseley UK has continued to show that it prioritises maintaining excellent people practices in the workplace. They continue to meet the challenges of the changing world of work while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of their workforce. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the organisations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”
