Herbalife Nutrition has been recognised as one of the Top Employers for 2019/2020 in South Africa. “The annual international research, undertaken by the Top Employers Institute, recognises leading employers around the world; those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organization, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices,” explains Herbalife Nutrition HR Manager, Ilanda Els.
This award, for which 96 companies were considered, is bestowed on numerous qualifying employers who need to be certified annually. The Top Employers Institute looks at market practices, policies and procedures in compensation and benefits, culture, talent strategy, training and development, leadership development, workforce planning, recognition, talent acquisition, onboarding and performance management. Contenders are then audited to ensure that their minimum requirements are met.
Herbalife Nutrition was recognised as a company which seeks to provide relevant benefits and opportunities for its employees so that they can enjoy a well-balanced work-life. Furthermore, this award acknowledges Herbalife Nutrition as an employer of choice which sets the standard in best practices in South Africa.
“Our employees are part of who we are as a company. There are many initiatives implemented to ensure that our employees see the pivotal part of our organization’s success - where we are being recognised in the market. This is very important in driving essential factors such as engagement. Our employees need to be proud of the organization they are part of,” says Els. "This extends to our philosophy, 'We use it, wear it, and talk it.' We could not have achieved this honour without every employee’s contribution and commitment to building it better for our current and future success.”
