The Top Employers Institute (previously known as the CRF Institute) awards certifications to companies worldwide that display an excellent commitment to their employees.
One essential component of the Top Employer certification program is that all participating companies are subject to a standardized auditing process. Companies must comply with the high standard requirements to be certified. All results and documentation are forwarded to a centralized body for final evaluation to increase the strength and legitimacy of the certification process.
The Top Employer Institute verifies and audits employee services in the following categories:
- Talent strategy
- Human resources planning
- Training and development
- Performance management
- Executive development
- Career and succession planning
- Compensation and benefits
- Corporate culture
