One of the world’s leading international Human Resources certification programs has awarded TNT Express Australia the title of ‘top employer’.
The Netherlands-based CRF Institute presented the Top Employer award at a ceremony in Sydney, making TNT Express one of the first Australian companies to achieve the prestigious certification.
CRF Institute global accounts director Johann Labuschagne said the Top Employers certification was given to TNT Express
following an extensive independent audit of the company’s HR practices, policies and employee offerings.
“Our ratings are reviewed and updated annually to maximise their relevance for participating organisations, their staff and stakeholders.”
“Only companies that offer best-in-class conditions for their employees earn the certification,” said Mr Labuschagne.
TNT Express has undertaken several recent initiatives to raise its profile in the employment marketplace, including its Women in Transport campaign to attract more women employees to the business.
TNT Express HR Director Sue Davies said the Top Employer certification was recognition of the company’s long-term efforts to make it a great place to work.
“TNT Express Australia has been recognised in a number of ways for its contribution towards making its people successful, but the Top Employer accreditation is particularly gratifying,” Mrs Davies said.
“Attracting, developing and retaining quality people has long been TNT Express’ aim, and Top Employers recognises this.”
The CRF Institute has operations in 13 countries on five continents, and has run Top Employers since 1991.
The certification is achieved by auditing 11 key HR areas and assessing the company against five core criteria: primary benefits, secondary benefits and working conditions, training and development, career development and culture management.
A company must meet or exceed 60 per cent of the highest overall score in order to receive Top Employer certification.
