Orion - best employer

The CRF Institute is a specialist firm that produces the highly anticipated European, Asian and African top employers indices each year. It uses stringent, objective, fact-based research to review the individual HR drivers, policies and practices of organisations in an effort to identify those companies that meet the highest standards in HR. Essentially, a Best Employer seal signifies that a company provides outstanding opportunities for its employees at both a professional and personal level.

The institute has just completed this year’s review of a large number of South African employers. All the participating companies were assessed for their primary and secondary benefits and working conditions; training and development; career development and culture management. Out of a potential score of five for each criteria, Orion scored between three and four-and-a-half for each, demonstrating the strength of its performance in the survey. All research results were audited by Grant Thornton.

Samantha Crous, General Manager: South Africa, with the CRF Institute, says the Best Employers not only look to catering to employees’ current needs, but their future requirements as well. “The outstanding employee offerings that the certified Best Employers have in place for their staff show that they regard talent management as a top priority. They don’t just provide their employees with the things that interest them now, but also with those that will prepare them for their next career step within the organisation. Best Employers clearly show that they appreciate and foster their employees,” she says.
