- Orange named a top employer in the United States, Canada and Brazil
Orange Business Services, a leading global operator and integrator of communications solutions for multinational corporations, has been named one of the Top Employers in the United States, Canada and Brazil by the Top Employers Institute, an independent organization that certifies employers around the world for excellence in the total work environment they create for their employees. Last night in Amsterdam, the Orange group was also awarded for the first time the global certification "Global Top Employer 2016".
Top Employers certification is awarded to a select group of employers who demonstrate forward-thinking HR practices, have exceptional employee offerings, and foster an employee environment that promotes the personal and professional development of its employees; comparing them against an international standard.
“Providing a happy environment for your people to work in and knowing they have a good work-life balance is really important to Orange,” said Mark Kenealy, senior vice president, Americas, Orange Business Services. “I am a firm believer that employee satisfaction leads to customer satisfaction, and our recent customer surveys show this to be true. I am delighted and honored we were awarded these distinctions.”
Top Employers assessed Orange Business Services according to nine key criteria, ranging from talent strategy and leadership development to compensation and benefits.
“Optimal employee offerings and HR best practices ensure that people develop themselves personally and professionally,” said Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink. “This, in turn, enables companies to grow and develop, maximize organizational performance and attract and retain the best talent. Our comprehensive research concluded that Orange Business Services provides an outstanding employee environment and offers a wide range of creative initiatives – from benefits and learning and development opportunities to well-thought-out career management programs – that are truly aligned with the company’s culture.”
In addition to the Americas, Orange Business Services has received Top Employers certifications in many countries around the world, including Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Mauritius, Russia, Singapore, South Africa and the UK.
