What makes a Top Employer

About Certification

To achieve Top Employers certification, companies must meet the rigorous standards of The Top Employers HR Best Practices Survey - an annual, global study of over 600 HR policies and practices adopted by more than 1,400 leading employers around the world.

Our HR Best Practices Survey

The Top Employers’ survey is continually updated, ensuring that participants are assessed against the latest in HR innovation. Responses are validated with companies required to supply evidence to back-up their answers.
