Top Employer 2022

20 January 2022

Once again,2021 brought us many challenges, but UZ Leuven managed to remain a Top Employer. It's already the 14th time in a row that the hospital received this award. Top Employer is an annual recognition 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.

Both 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, that 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 development, innovation and investment in leadership at the heart of the organisation. UZ Leuven believes in an open atmosphere of trust, 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 20 January the 2022 award ceremony will take place during a worldwide virtual gathering with other top employers.
