The auditing survey from the Top Employers Institute highlighted Olam as excelling in each of the assessment categories, which included people strategy, organisation and change, career, digital HR, work environment, employer branding, talent acquisition and onboarding, performance management, learning, wellbeing, rewards and recognition, diversity and inclusion, and sustainability.

This year, the awards were presented at a virtual ceremony and brought together HR leaders and their peers to connect, inspire, and celebrate a better world of work. 221 organisations spanning 32 African countries have been named Top Employers 2021 in Africa for their outstanding HR strategies and people practices.

Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in people practices. To be eligible, the company must have at least 250 local or 2,500 employees globally as well as advanced HR practices. A certification programme that enables organisations to assess and improve the workplace environment.

David Plink, CEO of Top Employers Institute, remarked,

“In addition to the adverse impacts on global health systems and economies, businesses faced the significant hurdle of supporting their people in adapting to new ways of work. In our research, we were glad to see that Africa’s Top Employers put their employees first from the outset of the global health crisis. They responded and adapted quickly to the ever-changing situation.”

He added that despite the challenges, it was business as usual and Top Employers were held to the same high standards as with every previous year. “We also saw great opportunities and positive changes, including an increased focus on well-being, a greater need for work-life balance, and a reduction in time spent commuting,” said Plink.
