On this momentous occasion, we congratulate and thank every Top Employer for their dedication and contribution this year.”
The Certification Process
To achieve Top Employer Certification, participating organisations are assessed by Top Employers Institute via a rigorous analysis of their people practices.
The HR Best Practices Survey, completed by the HR team, covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics across the business and employee lifecycle, including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being, and Diversity and Inclusion.
The information is then validated and audited independently to ensure the integrity of the processes and data.
This year, Top Employers Institute has certified 2,053 Top Employers in 121 countries and regions across five continents.
To be eligible for participation, organisations must have at least 250 local or 2,500 international employees, as well as advanced, formalised HR practices.
