Nestlé Côte d'Ivoire, Nestlé Nigeria and their regional offices in Central and West Africa were named Best Employers by the Top Employers Institute, the international authority which rewards excellence in human resources management.
The global certification program distinguishes organizations based on the results of a rigorous survey of human resources best practices. The survey covers areas such as people management strategies, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, diversity and inclusion.
This recent "Top Employer" distinction obtained by Nestlé in the sub-region comes in addition to the inclusion of the Company at the top of the Bloomberg 2021 Gender Equality Index for the transparency of its reporting on gender and promotion of equality between women and men in the work environment.
Naturally, this recognition is the culmination of the intensive efforts made by the Company. Nestlé has achieved this leadership position thanks to a series of courageous and unique management decisions in the industry. Today, Nestlé has created no less than 900 jobs and continues to contribute to the income of thousands of others including small traders, carriers and wholesalers in the sub region.
The Top Employers Institute is the international certification body that recognizes excellence in HR practices. Their mission is to accelerate the impact of HR strategies to improve the world of work.
