For the fifth consecutive year, the Company is awarded the certification of HR excellence assigned by the Top Employers Institute

Lidl Malta, the leading supermarket chain on the Maltese islands, has been recognized as a Top Employer for the 5th consecutive year, having been awarded the Top Employers 2023 certification. With a growing workforce, which presently stands at over 450 employees, Lidl Malta is committed to offering the best working environment by placing people at the center of its operations. The Company's HR strategy highlights the importance of corporate welfare, continuous training and the development of new services. Every year, through the "Employees' Survey", the Company collects feedback from the employees regarding the working environment, demonstrating the Chain's willingness to listen to its employees. This is just one example of the initiatives that demonstrates Lidl Malta's commitment to always keep up with the times, as a result of which the choice to introduce the smart working on a permanent basis for employees who work at Lidl Head Office came about.


Gianluca Celentano, Lidl Malta Country Director, commented on this significant milestone: "The continuity with which this recognition has been awarded to us over the years is the confirmation that we have undertaken the right path for the development of personnel management policies. In particular, we have dedicated ourselves to the development of specific training projects to meet the needs of the various corporate areas, with the aim of providing the right skills to employees. We confirm our commitment to create the best working conditions for our employees. Being part of a community of excellence for the improvement of HR practices therefore fills us with pride and encourages us to continue enthusiastically in this direction."

The prize is awarded, following an in-depth analysis and a rigorous evaluation process, by the Top Employers Institute, an international certification body for HR excellence. For the year 2023 Lidl Malta has been included among the "Top Employers Malta" and, having obtained the same national recognition in more than 5 European countries, it is also included among the "Top Employers Europe", confirming itself again in both categories. The Top Employers Certification, for over thirty years, has been the official and most authoritative recognition of corporate excellence in HR policies and strategies and their implementation to contribute to people's well-being.

The Top Employers Institute issues the certification to companies that meet specific parameters, verified through a survey that analyzes 400 HR practices on 6 specific areas divided into 20 different topics such as People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Wellbeing and many more.
