Unilever Ghana PLC has been adjudged the number one Top Employer for 2022 at the Top Employer 2022 Awards.
A media release issued in Accra said the awards follows the HR Best Practices survey that assessed HR domains including people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, sustainability, and diversity and inclusion, among others. In his remarks, the Managing Director of Unilever Ghana PLC, Mr George Owusu-Ansah, said, ‘this award gives expression to our commitment to always put our people first in all we do as a business. Our people will always remain our number one priority as an organisation.’
He said the Top Employers Institute had certified and recognised over 1,857 Top Employers in 123 countries across five continents since its inception.
