“Increasing numbers of companies are expanding into the continent and these companies are becoming aware of the need to understand the perceptions of their employees towards their institutions and what value in the employer/employees relationship,” he said.
Sellschop said the survey looks at several parameters such as remuneration, work-life balance confidence in the organisation, operational effectiveness and job satisfaction.
“The survey also looks at the employees in terms of operational effectiveness and employee relationship with immediate supervisor the sense of inclusion in the organisation, overall job satisfaction and career development prospects among others,” he said.

The survey brought to a close a comprehensive process of analysing input of employees from 17 companies to ascertain which company they consider to be the best employer to work for.
The survey will expand into Tanzania and Uganda early next year before it spreads to the rest of the East African countries.
