Whirlpool wins top employer awards in UK and Europe

Whirlpool UK Appliances, whose brands include Hotpoint, Indesit and Whirlpool, has won the top employer accolade for the fourth consecutive year.

The award was given to Whirlpool UK by the Top Employers Institute, which also recognised Whirlpool EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) as Top Employer Europe, with certification for 2021 in five countries – UK, France, Italy, Poland and Russia.

The awards are based on the results of Top Employers Institute HR Best Practices Survey. This assesses each company in areas, such as people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, diversity and inclusion,

Andrzej Tuleja, general manager, UK and Ireland, at Whirlpool UK Appliances, said: “We are thrilled to have been recognised as a Top Employer once more. Our colleagues are integral to our business and ensuring we provide a safe working environment that supports and nurtures our colleagues is of utmost importance. 2020 was an unprecedented year for us all. We are therefore delighted that 2021 has started with an amazing recognition of the hard work and dedication that Whirlpool invests in its colleagues for now, and the future.”

Commenting on the award, Top Employers Institute chief executive David Plink said: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced – which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe – Whirlpool UK has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”
