The certification process
To achieve Top Employer Certification, participating organisations are assessed by Top Employers Institute via a rigorous analysis of their HR 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 & Inclusion. The information is then audited independently to ensure the integrity of the processes and data.
Phil Sproston, Region Manager (UK and Ireland) at Top Employers Institute, says: “Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work for their employees, exhibited through excellent HR policies and people practices. The latest data from our benchmarking shows how Top Employers in the UK have continued to develop their people practices and are still innovating as the pandemic evolves. In particular, the last twelve months have seen the introduction of new policies in the areas that matter most to employees, particularly in wellbeing and in equity, diversity & inclusion."
