HR Journey continues in 2024: Top Employer Institute recognises once again world-class people practices at BMW Group South Africa.

The Top Employers Institute has once again acknowledged BMW Group South Africa as a Top Employer in 2024. A global authority on recognising excellent HR policies and people practices, the Top Employers certification showcases an organisation’s commitment to a better workplace environment.

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the results of its HR Best Practices Survey and has certified and recognised over 2,000 employers in 122 countries and regions across five continents. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics, including people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, diversity, equity and inclusion, wellbeing and more. BMW Group South Africa is among the Top Employers Institute’s 10 international organisations that build futures and uplift communities through workplace improvement.

On its second consecutive prestigious recognition, CEO Peter van Binsbergen commented: “We are honoured to be recognised again as a Top Employer in South Africa and I am proud of our HR team for this acknowledgment of their commitment to building and maintaining a people-centric culture. As an employer we pride ourselves on building communities, offering continuous development opportunities for South African talents as well as securing jobs through the local investment in electrification and digitalisation. Being certified Top Employer proves our passion for people and sets the right tone for the year – building our success in South Africa for the next 50 years.

Commenting on this award for the organisation in the new year, Julia Modise, BMW Group South Africa HR Director, said: “We understand our position to make a profound difference within the workplace environment and to contribute to the economic and social upliftment of our country. This Top Employer accolade adds value to our efforts and amplifies our passion to achieve extraordinary outcomes for everyone.
