Pfizer Ltd awarded the Top Employers United Kingdom 2016 Certification

Pfizer is delighted to announce that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings. 

The annual, international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. 

Erik Nordkamp, Pfizer UK Country Manager said, "I am extremely proud that we have been awarded the Top Employers certification. For me, it is a key priority to ensure that we create the best environment possible to allow our employees to thrive at work. Our colleagues come to work with the common goal of trying to improve the health of people in the UK and around the world. This shared goal helps to create a positive, thriving culture and colleagues feel engaged, empowered and proud to work for Pfizer. I am pleased that this has been recognised and that Pfizer has been identified as a leading employer in the UK."

Crucial to the Top Employers Certification is the completion of a stringent research process, and meeting the required standard in order to achieve Certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified Pfizer’s outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a select group of certified companies. 

Eleanor Nickerson, Director of UK Operations for the Top Employers Institute: "The Top Employers Institute examines the HR practices and offerings that each participating company puts in place for its people, to create and maintain optimal employee conditions. Our in-depth examination concluded that Pfizer Limited provides an outstanding employee experience, with high quality initiatives that engage, reward and motivate employees, ensuring that people can develop themselves personally and professionally, and build a rewarding career."
