The certification is conferred globally to companies for outstanding employee orientation and innovative training programmes.

David Plink, CEO at Top Employers Institute, says: “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.”
