SAS in top three "Best Workplaces in Belgium" for the third time running
Successful 360-degree view of career planning and development
(Mar. 16, 2011)
– SAS Belgium captured second place in the Top 10 Best Workplaces for companies with fewer than 500 employees. It is the third time in a row that the leader in business analytics has achieved a top-three ranking. In Belgium, this research program is conducted by Vlerick's HRM Centre in conjunction with the Great Place to Work® Institute Europe.
"Being nominated as one of the Best Employers in Belgium for the third time in a row now, is of course important for SAS. This again confirms that our HR strategy and corporate culture really work. Our continuous attention to all aspects of our employees – sharing knowledge, offering development possibilities en creating opportunities to find and develop new competencies – results in happy and loyal employees. And happy employees make satisfied customers!"
SAS' program was particularly highly regarded by the jury.
For Els Brusselmans, HR Manager for SAS Belgium & Luxembourg, this recognition confirms that it's all about employees' knowledge and well-being. "We create the environment and offer our people the tools and support to help them be successful. From the first day at SAS, employees are invited and motivated to build their talents to the highest level and to take ownership of their further personal development. Lifelong learning is a way of life at SAS and ensures the future success of our organization and of our employees!”
Best Workplace rankings are based on two criteria:
- The response of workers at the Great Place to Work Trust Index©, a staff survey developed by the Great Place to Work Institute.
- A presentation submitted by the company that describes the strategy and actions the company uses to establish itself as a "Great Place to Work."
SAS is not only recognized as Best Employer or Top Employer in Belgium. SAS' HR policy also gained wide recognition in other countries. The company was again No.1 in the U.S. on FORTUNE magazine's annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list. Since the beginning of the awards in 1998, SAS has appeared on the list; this year was the eighth showing in the top10.
