Johannesburg - Which company is South Africa's best employer?

Deloitte asked employees from 113 firms to answer this question. The top ranked companies in the 2013 Deloitte Best Company to Work For Survey (BCTWF) were announced in Johannesburg on Thursday. They are:

• Old Mutual Life Insurance, which took the laurels as the leading company to work for in the category for organisations employing more than 2 500 people;
• Flight Centre (South Africa), in the medium-sized category for companies employing between 301 and 2 500 people;
• The Unlimited, in the small company category for employers with less than 300 employees.

The survey also recognised the companies who were rated as the best employers in various industry sectors. The top ranked industries for 2013 are:

• The MSA Group - Business & Professional Services
• Novo Nordisk - Chemical & Pharmaceutical
• The Unlimited - Finance Services: Insurance
• Microsoft SA - Information Technology
• DHL International T/A DHL Express - Logistics, Shipping & Transport
• Parsec  - Manufacturing
• Flight Centre (South Africa) - Tourism & Leisure

“The survey this year followed the ‘Business in Africa’ theme, which aptly placed the focus on talent in a changing business environment," said Hein Nienaber, associate director in muman capital at Deloitte.

“Increasing numbers of companies are expanding into the continent.... There is presently little data available on this topic in many African countries.

"The BCTWF Survey therefore offers employers the opportunity to develop insights into what motivates people, what attracts them to their companies, what they value and also collects the hard data required to make these judgements.”

    Well done

    So what happened to companies of previous years that also held that destinction and are not even on the list now? How can this be reliable then? Does company policies change that much?

      Good point, I know one company that lost out after changing policies to the disadvantage of the employees, supposedly because board members wanted that change

      You have to pay a lot of money to Deloitte's to even be considered for the award. Some companies decided to stop paying.

    What about the mining houses?

      Themba Maseko - 2013-10-03 15:35

      some companies do not enter this survey at all, they feel its a waste of time! the survey had 113 companies and the JSE main board has about 500 companies alone, excluding the alternate exchange, which isabout 50. There are hundreds more unlisted companies!

    Cassidian Optronics (Irene Campus) is also the best why was the survey not done there.

      Themba Maseko - 2013-10-03 15:36

      your management did not enter!

  • Craig Brickhill - 2013-10-03 15:31

    Because those companies refuse to pay between 36 and 142 thousand rand to take part. Just a form of advertising and nothing more.

  • Mboneni Happy Radebe - 2013-10-07 17:22

    What about ThoughtWorks???

  • Patrice Masaru Nakiranda - 2015-06-12 22:08

    This is good! But next time name and shame bad companies and force them to improve people's lives!
