Africa is an exciting and unpredictable place to be doing business. Many companies are alert to the opportunities that exist in our dynamic developing markets, but building stable brands within this volatile climate is not for sissies.
Since 1991, the Top Employers Institute certifies excellence in the conditions that international companies create for their people.

The first five Global Certifications have been awarded to Valeo, Technip, Dimension Data, JT International and DHL Express.
