​Top Employers Institute, a global organization dedicated to enriching the world of work, and connecting Top Employers throughout the world, has just announced Africa’s Top Employers for 2019. Organisations certified as Top Employers dedicate themselves to providing the very best working environment for employees through their progressive "people-first" HR practices.

As an independent HR certification company, the Top Employers Institute assesses participants through their global HR Best Practices Survey. In order to be certified, organisations must successfully achieve the required minimum standard as set out by the Top Employers Institute.

The HR Best Practice Survey encompasses over 100 questions which cover 600 "People Development" practices across 10 topics: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, Onboarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits, and Culture. The Top Employers Institute evaluates the implementation of these HR practices and reviews how they are supported through Strategy, Ownership, Practices, Measurement, and Technology. 

These companies help enrich the world of work with their outstanding dedication to HR excellence and because of this, they are recognised as an employer of choice.

CEO Top Employers Institute

CEO David Plink says that “We believe that the 2019 Certified organisations demonstrate exceptional employee conditions and encourage the development of these practices by putting their people first. These companies help enrich the world of work with their outstanding dedication to HR excellence, and because of this, they are recognised as an employer of choice.”

209 organisations in Africa officially registered to participate in this year’s Certification Programme. 195 organisations spanning 31 African countries and 23 industry sectors achieved the Top Employers 2019 Certification. 99 certified organisations will carry the South African Certification, while 96 certified Top Employers from other African countries outside of South Africa have also been certified.

Billy Elliott, Top Employers Institute Country Manager: Africa, says that the Certification provides employers with an important quality metric that enables them to position their brands more effectively in the attraction, retention, and engagement of top talent. “The Top Employers Institute is not just about certifying Africa’s Top Employers. We have seen a progression of HR in Africa over the last few years, and it is our role to empower and advance people strategies across the world. We are driven not just to certify but to benchmark and connect outstanding employers around the world,” he said.
