The Corporate Research Foundation (CRF) recently awarded Capgemini the title “Top Employer 2008 in Belgium” in its annual listing of attractive employers.
Active in 8 countries, the CRF conducts scientific and objective research into best business practices in human resources, leadership and strategy. The organization works with leading business journalists, analysts, academics, industry experts and trade associations to compile a list of top employers in each country annually.
The 2008 Belgian edition, published in collaboration with Jobat, gave Capgemini top marks for secondary terms of employment, promotion opportunities and training. Our primary terms of employment and working environment also scored well.
Suggested areas for improvement included the employee turnover rate and the proportion of female staff. Capgemini Belgium employs 110 people over the age of 50, a clear indication that many choose to spend their entire career with the company. Building on our successful Senior Leadership Program for experienced employees, Capgemini recently created the Emerging Leadership Program to highlight career opportunities for promising employees with 4-6 years of experience.
“We aim to offer all of our employees real career prospects,” says Paul Verbruggen, Vice-President of HR at Capgemini Belgium. “As we outsource more of our programming work to countries like India, the opportunities for Belgian employees will shift away from purely development-related work. As a result, our training programs focus on so-called soft skills, such as communication, intercultural cooperation and managing diversity.”
