Top Employer 2021

25 January 2021

Despite the challenges we've had to meet in 2020, UZ Leuven has managed to remain a Top Employer. It is the thirteenth time that UZ Leuven was awarded this title. Top Employer is an annual acknowledgement for companies with a strong HR policy.  Every year the Top Employers Institute certifies companies worldwide that are dedicated to creating an excellent HR policy and a positive work experience for its employees.

Confirmation and challenge

The certificate is a nice confirmation of a high-quality HR policy, but also a challenge to continue to work on innovation and development and on pushing boundaries with a talent-oriented HR policy. This will enable UZ Leuven to continue to be a real top employer in the future, which allows employees to bring out the best in themselves.

UZ Leuven is a university hospital where patients can count on innovative and high-quality patient care. Passion for our assignment, warm care and respect for one another and for patients is every individual are paramount. The hospital plays a pioneering role both in Belgium and Europe for a reason.

The more than 10,000 employees that make it their daily task to guarantee the best tailor-made care, deserve a top-level HR policy. A policy that puts personal motivation, professional devlopment, innovation and investment in leadership at the heart of the organisation. UZ Leuven believes in an open atmosphere of confidence, resourceful talent management and a positive work experience to bring out the very best performances in every single individual as well as the largest sense of purpose and satisfaction.

On 28 January the award ceremony will take place during a worldwide virtual gathering with other top employers. 


International acknowledgement

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisation based on the participation to their HR Best Practices Survey. The questionnaire relates to 6 HR domains: People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being and Diversity & Inclusion. 

The Top Employers Institute was established 30 years ago and has awarded more than 1600 organisations in 120 countries, spread over 5 continents.
