Top Employer certification recognizes the accomplishments of organizations that are providing the highest standards in employee conditions. The first step in the certification process is participation in the HR Best Practices Survey: a comprehensive analysis of an organization’s Human Resources environment. After completion of the HR Best Practices Survey, the Top Employers Institute determines which organizations have reached the required standards to be certified as Top Employers. It then validates its findings, including with the support of a third-party audit, before confirming certification. Regional and global certifications offer additional recognition to employers focused on advancing employee conditions within their entire organization, and the world.
