Exxaro Resources, one of South Africa’s leading diversified mining and energy solutions companies, has been recognised as a Top Employer in South Africa for 2022.
The Top Employers Institute certifies organisations based on the participation and results of its HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six human resources domains consisting of 20 topics, including people strategy; work environment; talent acquisition; learning; well-being; as well as diversity and inclusion.
Exxaro’s People Strategy is founded on four strategic priorities which include focusing on the workforce of the future; creating sound people partnerships; ensuring employee engagement; and supporting organisational transformation.
Vanisha Balgobind, Exxaro’s Executive Head for Human Resources, said the achievement was a testament to the company’s commitment to creating a culture in which people can thrive.
“It is an absolute honour to be recognised in this way among the leading companies in South Africa. Having received this accolade for the second year in a row and the third time overall, indicates just how important this certification is to us. Our success is built on strong leadership, career growth opportunities and an inclusive company culture,” said Balgobind.
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink said even in the face of the uncertainties and challenges presented by Covid-19, Exxaro has maintained its focus on its workforce.
“In these times more than ever, employers must focus on their workplace culture and giving employees a clear sense of how much they are valued. Culture drives performance and Exxaro have certainly ticked all the boxes in this regard,” he said.
