SAP NEWSBYTE – January 31, 2019 – SAP Switzerland has been officially recognized by the Top Employers Institute as a Top Employer 2019 for excellence in employee conditions.
Organizations certified as Top Employers dedicate themselves to providing the very best working environment for employees through their progressive ‘people-first’ HR practices.
This global Certification Program has certified and recognized more than 1500 Top Employers in more than 118 countries across five continents.
The Certification Program
The Top Employers Institute Program provides certified organizations with the ability to leverage their employer branding, benchmark their practices against other top performers and globally align their policies.
As an independent HR certification company, the Top Employers Institute assesses participants through their global HR Best Practices Survey. In order to be certified, organizations must successfully achieve the required minimum standard as set out by the Top Employers Institute.
The HR Best Practice Survey encompasses over 100 questions which cover 600 ‘People Development’ practices across 10 topics: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits and Culture. The Top Employers Institute evaluates the implementation of these HR practices and reviews how they are supported through Strategy, Ownership, Practices, Measurement and Technology.
What it means to be a Top Employer
Top Employers are organizations of the highest caliber that have worked hard to create, implement and progress their people strategies. They provide an outstanding experience through strategic and thoughtful workplace programs which create an environment that empowers and develops employees.
“We are honored to be certified as Top Employer 2019 in Switzerland. This proves that our efforts to deliver positive experiences to our employees are going in the right direction. We want to offer all employees an inclusive workplace, where they can bring what they are each single day.” – Enrico A. Palumbo, HR Director SAP Switzerland and Member of the Management Board.
