Africa’s top 29 Best Places to Work for 2022 revealed

LONDON, Dec. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Best Places to Work organization announced today the top 29 most performing employers in Africa for 2022. The certification program recently compiled its annual list based on the assessment of over 500 organizations operating across the continent.

Findings from this year indicated that the top performing organizations in Africa continued to invest in creating a highly-engaged workforce, with an average engagement score of 83%, compared with a market average of 71%. These organizations are particularly leading the way by creating engaging environments fostering organizational agility, building engaging leaders and demonstrating outstanding people practices and workplace excellence.

The research has also shown that given the present challenges around talent retention in Africa, employees who do not see good career opportunities or agree with their organization’s response to their well-being are three times more likely to leave.

Topping this year’s ranking was Novo Nordisk, the global pharmaceutical company followed by Dell, the American based technology company. Groupe Vipp Interstis, a leading service provider in Customer Interaction operating across different countries in Africa, came in the third position. Webhelp, a leading customer relationship and business process outsourcing company, came in the fourth position followed by Nestle, the leading food producer. To be considered, companies must be identified as outstanding employers at least in one of the countries across the continent.

The ranking was determined based on feedback from employees gathered through anonymous surveys and an HR assessment evaluating the people management practices against the best workplace standards. The top 29 list includes:

  1. Novo Nordisk
  2. Dell
  3. Groupe Vipp Interstis
