Starke Ayres (Pty) Ltd is recognised as a Top Employer 2023 in South Africa

We proudly announce that as a member of the Plennegy Group, Starke Ayres has been recognised as a Top Employer in South Africa.

Being certified as a Top Employer showcases our dedication to a better workplace, and we show this through striving to implement best practice HR policies and people practices that are aligned with our values of People, Ethics and Sustainable Business.

The certification process involved evaluating all our HR policies and practices against the industry's best standards. By attaining the certification, we are acknowledged for our dedication to implementing effective and fair HR processes. Our certification is more special because there were no Agriculture Industry standards, and we were assessed against all other Industries.

The programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics, including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Compensation and Benefits, Learning, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, well-being and more.

Companies must consistently improve their HR practices to maintain the Top Employer certification. This will foster a culture of continuous learning and development within all our businesses.

The Certification emphasises our commitment to all our employees’ well-being and development.

The Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in People Practices. Participating companies are validated, certified, and recognised as an employer of choice through the Top Employers Institute Certification Programme. The Top Employer Institute was established over 30 years ago and has certified 2,053 organisations in 121 countries/regions.
