We are delighted to announce that BP Southern Africa has been officially certified as a Top Employer by the Top Employers Institute. The awards were announced in Sandton last night, and applauded companies that have compelling and differentiated employee value propositions. The Top Employers Institute globally measures and certifies excellence in organisational culture and work environment, and following this annual assessment and audit process, BPSA was one of the organizations to receive recognition.
This recognition has special significance for BPSA as we move towards a culture shift and new ways of working that will drive innovation and customer centricity. “This is very encouraging and underscores our ongoing commitment to cultivate and maintain a positive organisational culture and work environment. As BPSA we pride ourselves with being an employer that nurtures and develops talent throughout all levels of the organisation and always strive to continuously optimise employment practices,” says BPSA HR Director, Lebo Tseladimitlwa.
She adds “As an organisation we believe that this accolade strongly reflects our corporate philosophy and strategy to value and focus on HR development and employer excellence. Similarly, this recognition confirms that we are a progressive and leading company for outstanding talent that any employee would wish to join.”
The employers examined were assessed on the following criteria: Primary Benefits, Secondary Benefits and Working Conditions, Training and Development, Career Development, and Culture Management. Important is the Top Employers procedure for the participating companies’ obligation to complete a stringent research process – the Top Employers Institute’s international HR Best Practices Survey – and meet the required high standard 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.
