Bureau Veritas awarded for second year running Top Employers United Kingdom certification
Birmingham, 14 March 2014: For the second year running Bureau Veritas UK Limited has been officially recognised by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings and has been awarded the exclusive Top Employers United Kingdom 2014 certification. Out of a strong field, Bureau Veritas was ranked in the top twenty of companies receiving certification.
The annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world. Those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. Crucial to the Top Employers process is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard in order to achieve the certification.
