NTT DATA Belgium achieves the Top Employer 2023 certification thanks to its people-centric strategy

NTT DATA, a provider of IT and business services, has been certified by the Top Employers Institute in Belgium for the first time since the company is working in the country. This reflects the advance in the commitment toward people that the company has in Belgium, as well as the impulse for a strategic office within the Group.

To achieve certifications, the company has relied on the already recognized nations to lend their collaboration to the eligible countries during this year, thus demonstrating the importance of collaboration and teamwork among the countries in which NTT DATA is located.

At NTT DATA we believe in people and their potential. Work on building a hybrid and flexible work environment that encourages collaboration and where people can trace their own professional evolution, participating in innovative and diverse projects, and most importantly surrounded by excellent professionals with a high human quality”. says Zoubida Belhoussine, People Head at NTT DATA Benelux, France, and Switzerland.

One of the benefits for the employees at NTT DATA Belgium is the Mobility Budget! This benefit is an alternative to the traditional company car and offers our employees the freedom to choose the means of transport of their choice, while also contributing to our goal of reducing CO2 emissions across the organization.

Top Employer Certification

The Top Employer certification, which has been awarded for more than 30 years, aims to give visibility to best practices in human resources in companies around the world. On this occasion, NTT DATA Belgium has obtained an exceptionally high score in the areas such as Business Strategy, People Strategy, and Leadership.

This recognition positions NTT DATA Belgium as one of the 86 certified Top Employer companies in the country, 17 of which are within the IT sector.

Through this achievement, NTT DATA solidifies its position among the best employers, thanks to the implementation of hybrid and flexible work policies that meet the needs of each person; a commitment to diversity and inclusion; its models for attracting and retaining talent; the way in which it supports and onboards new recruits; and the alignment of HR strategy with business strategy.

These initiatives, which impact almost 300 employees based in Belgium, speak to a company culture that puts employees at the center of its strategy and decision-making. They also serve to attract talent, as the company wishes to expand its team in different business units.

In short, this is a commitment to people, which places NTT DATA in a scenario that ensures its growth, offering unique opportunities to all talent at any level and providing value and innovation to each of the customers who trust in the company, with the aim of scaling them towards a more efficient and viable operating model, always supported by technology.

Multinational recognition

The company has been awarded in 12 countries, doubling the number of countries obtaining this certification. Thus, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Spain are joined by Argentina, Belgium, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Romania, in recognition of excellence in the professional environment of companies, and the endorsement of good practices and policies in human resources.

The increase in the number of certified nations has resulted in regional seals being obtained for Europe, Latin America, and North America. Obtaining these regional seals is fundamental for NTT DATA to achieve its goal of obtaining the global seal for the following year.
