About the certification
As an independent certification company, the Top Employers Institute rates companies on the basis of a global HR Best Practice survey. To obtain the certification, companies must meet the minimum requirements defined by the Top Employers Institute. The HR Best Practices Survey comprises 100 questions that analyse 600 practices from 10 areas of practice: talent strategy, personnel planing, talent acquisition, on-boarding, training and development, performance management, development of executives, career and succession planning, compensation and benefits as well as corporate culture. The Top Employers Institute rates in how far these aspects are supported by the strategic orientation, the integration of executives, adequate applications and their examination and by the use of technologies.
