The Top Employers Institute has certified Nestlé Côte d’Ivoire, Nestlé Nigeria and the parent company, Nestlé Central and West Africa Region, as top employers.
Nestle stated that the institute’s award was based on rigorous HR Best Practices Survey, which covered topics such as people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, diversity and inclusion.
Chief Executive Officer of TEI, David Plink, said, “Despite the challenging year we have experienced, which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe, Nestlé in Central and West Africa has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace.”
Regional Human Resources Director for Nestlé Central and West Africa, Fridah Muchina, hailed the accolade as a testament to the company’s commitment to its employees across the region.
“This recognition is proof that we are delivering on the company’s global commitment to promote decent employment and foster diverse and inclusive workplace. It confirms Nestlé’s dedication to facilitate a better world of work for our employees,” he said.
Material Requirement Planner in Supply Chain for Nestlé CWA, Linda Nkrumah, added, “Nestlé provides a conducive environment for work and this fosters work-life balance. As a first-time mother, I had the opportunity to work from home, even after my maternity leave.
“This helped me take care of my little one while working to fulfil production demands at the height of the pandemic. The on-site nursery also means that I can go to work knowing that my baby will be safe and well taken care of.”
According to CEO for Nestlé Central and West Africa, Mauricio Alarcón, “People are our greatest asset. Though 2020 was challenging, it was paramount for us, as a company, to continue to invest not only in our employees’ professional development, but also in their health and well-being. This way, we are all motivated to give our best in a safe, supportive, stimulating and rewarding environment.”
