Dimension Data has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings.
The annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. Dimension Data has been awarded the exclusive Top Employers South Africa 2016 certification.
The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. It has just announced the results of this year’s research into the employee conditions of significant employers in South Africa. Dimension Data is one of the select organisations to achieve the Top Employers South Africa 2016 certification.
Crucial to the Top Employers process is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard in order to achieve the certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified Dimension Data’s outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.
The Top Employers Institute assessed Dimension Data’s employee offerings on the following criteria:
* Talent strategy;
* Workforce planning;
* On-boarding;
* Learning and development;
* Performance management;
* Leadership development;
* Career and succession management;
* Compensation and benefits; and
* Culture.
Samantha Crous, regional director: Africa and Benelux for the Top Employers Institute, comments: “Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that Dimension Data provides an outstanding employment environment and offers a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programmes that are well thought out and truly aligned with the culture of their company.”
Linda Fine, human resources executive at Dimension Data MEA, says: “As an organisation, we are honoured to be recognised for the seventh consecutive year as a Top Employer in South Africa. We believe that our people are our differentiator, and all the systems, policies and processes we put in place are to ensure we enable them to accelerate our employees ambitions whilst accelerating the ambitions of our clients and delivering exceptional business value to them.”
