Become a Top Employer

The Top Employers Certification programme enables organisations to assess and improve the workplace environment. Established more than 25 years ago, the Top Employers Institute has certified over 1 600 organisations in 119 countries/regions. These Certified Top Employers positively impact the lives of over 6 900 000 employees globally. As a recognised Top Employer, you are provided with branding, benchmarking, alignment and connection tools to further build and solidify your position as an employer of choice.


We are passionate about promoting and celebrating the success of our Top Employers. We will partner with you to leverage your recognition and provide your organisation with the certification seal to communicate your excellence to the world. 


The certification programme helps you measure your progress against other companies who are just as dedicated to their people practices. We will help you benchmark your performance through interactive feedback sessions and insightful reports. 

Accelerate your people strategies by benchmarking policies with proven HR best practices around the world.


As organisations grow, regional processes typically align and HR is no exception. The Top Employers Institute specialises in this alignment of practices and policies through regional reports and programme management. The result is a global workforce who benefit in full from all outstanding people practices.
