The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. They believe that optimal employee conditions ensure that people develop themselves personally and professionally. This in turn enables companies to grow and to develop.
The six stages in the certification program included a HR best practices survey, validation of the provided answers, audit from an external auditing firm of the Top Employers Institute's procedures, processes, systems and data, calculate final scores and grant certification, communication of certification outcomes to participants, and insights and feedback session.
As the major part of the certification process, the HR best practices survey covers all aspects of the HR topics, including talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning & development, performance management, leadership development, career & succession management, compensation & benefits, culture and talent acquisition.
