We are exceptionally proud to announce that Tiger Brands has once again been certified for Top Employers South Africa status in 2017. The Top Employers Institute globally measures and certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their employees and following this annual assessment and audit process, Tiger Brands was one of the successful organisations to be awarded the exclusive Top Employers South Africa 2017 certification.
According to Tswelo Kodisang, our Chief HR Officer, “this year, we achieved a score of 73.51% which is a 13% improvement on our 2016 score of 65%. This is a significant milestone and achievement for us on our HR journey, however there is much work still be done. We will continue to strive to improve our performance.”
What does Top Employer certification mean?
The Top Employers Institute is an independent organisation uncovering the employee offerings of significant employers around the world and measuring them against the international standard. As such, only the world’s leading employers become certified as Top Employers.
Crucial to the Top Employers procedure is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process – the Top Employers Institute’s international HR Best Practices Survey – and meet the required high standard in order to achieve the certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified our outstanding employee conditions and earned us a coveted spot among a select group of certified Top Employers.
The certification programme measures HR policies, strategy & practices across 9 dimensions:
- Talent Strategy
- Workforce Planning
- On -Boarding
- Learning & Development
- Performance Management
- Leadership Development
- Career & Succession Management
- Compensation & Benefits
- Culture (values, engagement, employer brand, diversity, networking, well-being, ethics & integrity, corporate social responsibility, exit management)
Tiger Brands earned the certification as a Top Employer because our employee offerings across all measured criteria surpassed the required Certification Cut-off.
The next level
As a certified Top Employer, Tiger Brands can proudly wear the exclusive Certification Seal for a year. “The Certification Seal is not only a recognisable symbol of our successful employee environment over the past 12 months, but also of our commitment to optimise, develop and work with you to become an even better employer,” says Tswelo.
