AstraZeneca named South Africa’s ‘top employer 2021’  

AstraZeneca has been recognised as the top employer in South Africa and Kenya based on its dedication to a better world of work, exhibited through excellent human resources policies and people practices.

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey, covering topics such as people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being and diversity, and inclusion.

The Chief Executive Officer, Top Employers Institute, David Plink, said, “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), AstraZeneca has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme.”

Also, President, African Cluster (South Africa, Sub Sahara, and French Speaking Africa), Barbara Nel, noted, “None of what we have achieved this year would have been possible without the tremendous efforts of all our teams, despite personal challenges faced.

According to the pharmaceutical firm, achieving the ‘Top Employer’ certification is a testament to “each individual within our region” working with absolute determination and passion to make a difference in the world.
