For the third consecutive year, food services company Compass Group Belgium has been certified as a Top Employer. The company is one of 72 certified Belgian Top Employers for 2020 and remains the only in its industry with the coveted certification.


Every year in February, the Top Employer Institute rewards a range of companies that offer their employees a chance to evolve, both on professional and personal levels. 

One of those employers is Compass Group Belgium, the food services expert who delivers 150,000 meals on a yearly basis to companies and public institutions (under the Eurest brand), schools and universities (under the Scolarest brand) and care facilities (under the Medirest brand). The group was lauded for the second year running for the excellent working conditions for its 2,000 Belgian employees. 

“It’s probably a cliché,” Marc de Bernardin, HR Director at Compass Group Belgium notes, “but people really do make a difference in our industry. If we take care of our people, they take care of our customers, and that’s how we come full-circle. We make sure we offer a creative and stimulating environment that has a training plan for every employee. That plan holds internal an external training, but also online training, inspirational workshops with top chefs, traineeships, coaching-programmes, internships, mentoring and personalised training programmes. There’s a good reason our company slogan is Passion for food and peopleBoth are essential for our success. This second Top Employer title is both an affirmation of our approach and a stimulant to continue on our chosen path.”
