The following is written by Alison Sharp, HR Director, UK&I and EMEA, at Experian.
We are thrilled to announce that Experian has been officially certified as a ‘Top Employer’ by the Top Employers Institute in the UK and Spain.
The annual research programme recognises leading employers around the world. Awarding only those that provide the kind of conditions where their employees can develop, both professionally and personally, nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation.
This recognition is not only testament to the incredible work undertaken throughout the business, but also builds on ‘Top Employer’ status achieved in Experian South Africa and Bulgaria – awarded over the last couple of months.
So, what makes Experian such a great place to work? An inspiring working environment, unlimited development opportunities and rewards that recognises your contribution and commitment are just a few. But above all else, it’s our people. And it’s our people who have made this recognition possible. By listening to them and encouraging new ideas, they have continued to help us develop our working culture and pushed the boundaries to create the best possible working environment.
A key part of this is embracing diversity at all levels. Different approaches, different solutions and different views helps create an inclusive environment that people are proud to work in. We want everyone to bring their whole-self to work, creating a place where everyone has the freedom to explore and share interests, no matter what their individual story is, without fear of judgement. The more inclined we are to bring our rich outside world into our work, the more we will expose others to new perspectives and different thinking, which in turn makes Experian a great place to be.
Today, we will celebrate our success, but the hard work doesn’t stop here. We have set ourselves the challenge to not only keep our Top Employer status next year, but also improve our overall performance against the institute’s tough certification criteria, continuing our development of Experian as an outstanding place to work.
We asked our people what makes Experian a great place to work.
