London/Mumbai/ Kolkata, Mar 21 : Tata Consultancy Services, a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, on Friday announced that it has been named as the Top Employer in Europe by the Top Employers Institute for the second consecutive year.
TCS was ranked first among the 20 companies that were eligible for the award. The company was recognised as an exceptional performer across six core Human Resources (HR) areas; primary conditions, secondary benefits, working conditions, training, career development and company culture, the company said in a statement.
Only companies that have been certified as a Top Employer in at least five individual countries in Europe are eligible for the award.
TCS was certified in eight separate markets in 2014, including the UK - where the company secured the certification for the fourth year in a row - and Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, where it was certified for the second consecutive year. This year also saw TCS certified in France, Sweden and Denmark for the first time.
Ajoy Mukherjee, Executive Vice President and Global Head, Human Resources, TCS said "We provide a platform that helps our 290,000 employees realize their potential and build long-term career. We are delighted to have been rated as the foremost employer across Europe for the second consecutive year and we look forward to building on this success as we continue to grow and develop our talent base across the UK and Continental Europe."
