Monday 25, January 2021

The company has been recognised by Top Employer Institute as one of the best places to work in six of the European countries in which it operates.

The certification highlights, for the third consecutive year, EDPR's excellence in the field of Human Resources in Europe.

EDPR has once again demonstrated its ability to offer a transparent and open working environment, where the professional and personal development of employees is encouraged and where the latest trends are incorporated.

Madrid, January 25th 2021. EDPR, a world leader in the renewable energy sector and the third largest wind energy producer in the world, has received the title of Top Employer Europe for the third consecutive year as one of the best places to work. This certification values EDPR's excellence in the use of best practices in the field of Human Resources, thanks to a corporate culture that prioritises people above all else.

The continental Top Employer Europe label is awarded to companies that have been certified in at least five European countries. In EDPR's case, these are Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Poland and Romania, a new addition this year.

In a year marked by the health crisis and therefore not without its challenges, EDPR has once again demonstrated its ability to offer a transparent and open working environment, in which the professional and personal development of its employees is encouraged and in which the latest trends are incorporated to ensure the well-being of all its professionals.

EDP Renewables CEO and Chairman of the Board, Miguel Stilwell de Andrade, highlights:

At EDPR we firmly believe that people and their talent are the cornerstone of our company and it is precisely this philosophy that has led us to revalidate the prestigious Top Employer Europe certification. In a difficult year for all of us, we have managed to continue creating the optimal conditions for our team to grow both professionally and personally. We are committed to each and every one of the professionals who make up EDPR and we want to continue to be a benchmark for best practices in the field of Human Resources".

EDPR has retained the title in six European countries by successfully passing the demanding standards set by the Top Employers Institute in its global HR Best Practices Survey. This certification process assesses 600 people development practices in ten areas: talent strategy; workforce planning; talent acquisition; on-boarding; learning and development; performance management; leadership development; career and succession management; compensation and benefits; and culture.

Participating organisations are validated, certified and recognised as an employer of reference through the Top Employers Institute Certification Programme, which has certified more than 1,600 organisations in 120 countries and regions.
