To qualify for the Top Employer certification, the global nutrition company participated in an HR Best Practices Survey based on six domains, covering key HR themes. The domains are steer, shape, attract, develop, engage, and unite. To be eligible for participation, organisations must meet certain entry criteria, including having formalised HR practices.
“We are incredibly proud and honoured to receive this prestigious title again this year. Being named one of the country’s Top Employers is a true testament to our unwavering commitment and ongoing efforts to ensure our people are empowered, engaged, and fulfilled. Employee satisfaction is a top priority for us,” explained Thilo Naidoo, country director of Herbalife Nutrition Southern Africa.
Ilanda Els, senior human resources manager for Herbalife Nutrition (Africa, Turkey and Germany), agreed, adding, “Herbalife Nutrition is dedicated to empowering and enabling our employees. We make sure to give them the necessary support and tools to not only thrive in their positions at the company but also develop in their overall careers. We understand that our success comes from our people, and thus we go above and beyond to build a team culture that’s as positive and ambitious as we are. Everyone at our company rallies around our purpose in always doing what’s right by working together to build it better daily.”
This year, the prestigious programme has certified and recognised more than 1,857 Top Employers across 123 countries. The certification is a sign that a business has a passion for and commitment to enriching the world of work. This also makes Top Employers a first choice for many prospective employees. As a global leader in nutrition and skincare products, Herbalife Nutrition is proud to join other international and local companies on the list.
“Being recognised by the Top Employers Institute for the third year in a row is a huge achievement for Herbalife Nutrition South Africa, and we would like to thank everyone at the company who works so diligently to make it an inspiring place to work,” concluded Ilanda.
