International SOS recognised as a Top Employer in the UK for 2020

11 February 2020 ,  London

International SOS, the world’s leading medical and security risk services company, is proud to be recognised as a Top Employer UK 2020 by the Top Employer Institute, for the second year running. The Top Employer certification recognises organisations that are dedicated to providing the best working environment for employees, though a progressive ‘people first’ attitude. International SOS was one of 82 companies in the UK to have been awarded this certification.

Dominik Schaerer, International SOS Regional Managing Director Europe, commented, “We are thrilled to be recognised with the Top Employer United Kingdom certification for a second consecutive year. Engaging our employees with our company’s core purpose - to save and protect lives - is of utmost priority. This award is acknowledgement of the personal contributions and commitment of all our employees working in the UK.

Crucial to the ‘Top Employers’ process is a requirement that participating companies must meet the high standard. As such the endorsement is attained through a stringent certification process evaluating internal HR policies and procedures. It is only awarded to companies that achieve the highest standards of excellence in employee conditions.

This year’s process included a comprehensive analysis of ‘People Development’ practices across key areas including Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-boarding, Learning and Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career and Succession Management, Compensation and Benefits, and Culture.
