Amadeus awarded Top Employers United Kingdom 2016 Certification

Amadeus has announced its certification by the Top Employers Institute as one of the leading employers in the UK based on its exceptional employee offerings, and to be officially recognised as a leading employer. The certification means that Amadeus’ UK office, headquartered at Gatwick airport, makes employee development a priority which results in an excellent working environment that nurtures talent and ambition.

The annual, international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises top employers around the world based on the conditions employers create for their people. Certified Top Employers must provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and strive to continuously optimise employment practice.

• Talent Strategy 
• Workforce Planning
• On-Boarding
• Learning & Development
