Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield Germany is Top Employer 2020

Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) Germany has once again been named Top Employer 2020 in Germany by the Top Employers Institute. The independent Top Employers Institute certifies companies worldwide that place their employees at the center of their entrepreneurial activities and offer them an outstanding working environment.

URW Germany shows itself as a pioneer in the field of human resources through future-oriented thinking with regard to its employees and continuous investment in employee development.

“Our success is based on the commitment, passion and talents of our employees”, explains Bruno Bittis, Director of Human Resources at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield in Germany. “The renewed Top Employers certification is both a pleasure and an incentive for us. It confirms our ambitious efforts and encourages us to be one of the best employers all around Europe for years to come.”

Compared to last year’s edition, URW has improved in all ten categories of the survey in Germany. In particular, results in the areas of Talent Acquisition as well as Career & Succession Management have been encouraging, showing double-digit growth rates. As in the previous year, excellent results can be seen in the fields of Talent Strategy and Performance Management.
