“Fostering a collaborative environment that breaks down silos and focuses on respecting and inspiring our employees is the cornerstone of BSH – and receiving Top Employers United States of America for the fourth year in a row is a testament to that,” said Marlies van der Horst, Head of Human Resources, BSH Home Appliances Corporation, Region North America. “We know our success depends on our team, and we are committed to providing growth opportunities and outstanding support for employees across every level of the organization.”

Vital 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 to the more than 100 survey questions were independently audited, meaning this research has verified that BSH offers outstanding employee conditions. The criteria for which BSH was audited include:
