Since 2003, on behalf of the EU Commission, the European affiliate of the high-status worldwide Great Place to Work Institute produces its annual Top 100 and Top 10 of Best Workplaces in the European Union. Out of 1,000 participating companies from 15 different European countries representing a wide range of industries, Cofinimmo has been honoured for its outstanding achievements and has been elected one of this years Top 10 Best Workplaces in the European Union!
This year, the Great Place to Work Institute Europe announced the Top 100 and Top 10 on 17 May 2006 at an Award Event in Berlin; the results were published in the Financial Times on 18 May 2006. The companies are selected based on their effort to create a high-quality working environment, for which their best practices related to the following five dimensions are examined: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride and Camaraderie. The Top 10 of Best Workplaces is the absolute European top, and except for the winner, no ranking distinction is made between the 10 companies elected.
For Cofinimmo, this reward comes after its election as Best Employer of the year 2006 in Belgium and the companys recognition as Investor in People, another important European Human Resources label.
These 3 prestigious awards value Cofinimmos efforts and achievements in creating collaborative, successful relationships among people, which highly contributes to the companys aim for most excellent corporate and commercial performance.
