Top Employer Institute recognizes companies with superior human resources practices.

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has been recognized by the Top Employers Institute (TEI) as one of the best employers in Belgium for the first time and, for the 13th consecutive year, as a top employer in Germany in the Engineering category.

Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organization’s dedication to a better world of work through its human resources policies and people practices. The TEI program certifies organizations based on the results of an HR Best Practices Survey, which covers topics such as people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, diversity and inclusion, and more. Only employers who meet TEI’s highest standards receive the award and certification.

“We are extremely proud to receive the award and certification from TEI again, now for the 13th year,” said Kerstin Gutbell, EMEA university relations lead at TE Connectivity Germany GmbH. “The two certifications demonstrate that our employees are at the heart of what we do. We are confident that our values of teamwork, innovation, accountability and integrity, as well as our will to listen, will only help us to further improve.”

These core values have proved even more important as TE and companies globally continue to face the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our employees have remained passionate and collaborate with flexibility and resilience, even through yet another year of challenging conditions,” said Thomas Rathke, director of HR solutions, EMEA Central. “The global connections we have built among our teams are vital to the company’s continued success. TE employees across EMEA and around the world should celebrate this certification alongside their colleagues in Germany and Belgium.”

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organizations across the world, TE Connectivity has continued to show that it prioritizes 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 organizations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”

The program has certified and recognized more than 1,857 Top Employers in 123 countries/regions across five continents.
