01 February 2019 ,  London

International SOS, the world’s leading medical and security risk services company, has been officially recognised as a Top Employer UK 2019 by the Top Employer Institute. This certification is in addition to the Top Employer certification received by International SOS in South Africa. The Top Employer certification recognises organisations that are dedicated to providing the best working environment for employees, though a progressive ‘people first’ attitude.

Dominik Schaerer, International SOS Regional Managing Director Europe, commented, “We are extremely proud of receiving the Top Employer United Kingdom certification. Supporting our people is of highest priority and this reflects our continual focus on ensuring every employee is provided with opportunities to learn, develop and thrive, professionally and personally. We have a team of people who are truly dedicated to the aims of our business; namely, saving and protecting lives. We, in turn, are committed to providing the best working environment we can and to be a leading employer of choice in the UK.”

Crucial to the ‘Top Employers’ process is a requirement that participating companies must meet the high standard. As such the endorsement is attained through a stringent certification process evaluating internal HR policies and procedures. It is only awarded to companies that achieve the highest standards of excellence in employee conditions.

The process includes participation in the HR Best Practices Survey: a comprehensive analysis of the organisation’s Human Resources environment and strategy and covers 600 HR practices across Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-boarding, Learning and Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career and Succession Management, Compensation and Benefits, and Culture.
