Recognition endorsing Worldline’s global leadership in HR best practices

Worldline participated in the Top Employer audit to assess its Human Resources best practices and level of long-term commitment and efforts in setting exemplary managerial and people practices within the company.

In 2023, the Institute recognised more than 2,000 Top Employers in over 120 countries/regions across five continents. This is an in-depth external audit of Human Resources and People Management practices. The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey* which covers six HR domains, consisting of 20 topics.

Worldline is proud to be certified in a total of 16 countries. These include Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, India, Italy, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the Group’s joint venture in Germany, PAYONE, with specific recognition on three best practices: Ethics & Integrity, Business Strategy and Employer Branding.

A new Employee Value Proposition acknowledged

This recognition follows Worldline’s new Employee Value Proposition (EVP) which was built in close cooperation between several departments and Worldliners. The new EVP was defined in response to employee feedback, the business and the market whilst taking into account Worldline’s purpose and ambitions as a business at the heart of global payment technology industry. It aims to further attract candidates by raising awareness of the employee journey they can expect whilst better defining applicant targets.

A commitment to improvement

Worldline is highly conscious of encountering fresh challenges in the future, especially within the identified areas where improvements can be made and as such continues to deploy dedicated action plans.

“When you join Worldline you enter into a technology company that offers a unique digital, business, international and purpose experience. I am very proud of all of the countries included in this year’s prestigious Top Employer lists. Our inclusion is a demonstration of our strong, long-term people focused vision. Worldline’s values of Innovation, Cooperation, Empowerment and Excellence resonate in everything we do, from our long-term PayTech strategy to the smallest of daily interactions between colleagues.” says Philippe Mareine, Chief People Officer and Head of Corporate Digital Acceleration at Worldline.

“Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2023. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and well-being of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: the Top Employers 2023.” said Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink.
