Unilever named the best employer in Kenya


The Top Employer Institute, an international certification institute, has ranked Unilever as the Number one employer in Kenya in 2015/16 for the third year in a row.

The Top Employer Institute, based in Netherlands, benchmarks companies against global human resource best practices and its certification is recognised internationally. It certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create to ensure that employees develop themselves fully, both personally and professionally.

“The ‘Winning with People’ agenda is fundamental to the success of our business strategy,” said Marc Engel, Unilever CEO for East Africa. “This is why there is unwavering focus on co-creating a culture and organisation that enables our people to grow and develop as leaders with purpose.”

Unilever achieved top scores after going through stringent validation and external audit processes which involved a research procedure commissioned to critically assess HR management and employee welfare in the organisation.

Ms Salome Nderitu, the Unilever HR Director for Unilever East Africa said: “This is the payoff on the focus the company has given to staff and their wellbeing; it’s also a recognition of our efforts in building a strong Employer Brand and a culture of excellence in HR policy and practice.”

The Top Employer Institute also ranked the leading consumer goods manufacturer as best employer in Africa for the second year running. Overall, Unilever swept the Top Employer board, picking up a certification in Côte d’Ivoire and No.1 slots in Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana, as well as South Africa where the team also took top place in categories like consumer goods and manufacturing for an unprecedented third year running.
