Olam Agri is also recognised as a Top Employer in the African continent for the 3rd consecutive year. This recognition reflects the company’s position as a global employer of choice as it strives to give its 9,600 employees the freedom to flourish personally and professionally in a purpose-driven organisation that supports diversity, inclusion, and collaboration.
The Top Employers Institute, the global authority on recognising excellence in People Practices, recognises an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work through excellent Human Resources (HR) policies and people practices. The programme has certified and recognised over 2,300 Top Employers in 121 countries/regions across five continents. The survey covers six domains including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Wellbeing, and more.
In addition to the Top Employer recognition, Olam Agri has recently received the Great Place to Work® certification for Brazil, India, and Singapore, as well as the Kincentric Best Employers Award for China and Thailand.
Mr. Stephen Adeakye, Head of HR at Olam Agri in Ghana, commenting on the company’s certification in Ghana, said,
“As we celebrate our fourth consecutive Top Employer Certification, we acknowledge the dedicated efforts of our employees and reaffirm our commitment to nurturing a workplace that inspires excellence and innovation. This recognition motivates us to continue our journey toward setting new standards in employee satisfaction and engagement. By consistently investing in employee development, welfare, and satisfaction, we aim to create a workplace that fosters growth and prosperity.”
Olam Agri’s commitment to building a high-performing organisation and an inspiring workplace is supported by 3 Cs of Culture, Contribution, and Career:
1. A culture of excellence: a culture that encourages collaboration and teamwork, rewards meritocracy and entrepreneurial spirit that allows intelligent risk-taking, and a diverse and inclusive workplace built on trust and autonomy. Easy access to senior leadership further empowers employees, eliminating bureaucratic hurdles and fostering agile decision-making.
2. Making a difference: a purpose-driven workplace that has sustainability at its heart. It allows playing our part in strengthening global food security, improving access to better nutrition, enhancing the livelihood of communities, as well as tackling climate change.
3. Opportunity to Flourish: A global footprint allowing truly global careers. This allows people to take on challenging assignments that broaden their experience and help shape and guide their careers matching their aspirations. Everyone feels valued, recognised, and supported to reach their full potential.
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. We have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2024. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and well-being of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: the Top Employers 2024.”
