Softline VIP also placed second overall, in the medium company category (301-2,500 full time employees) for a second consecutive year.
“The survey provides detailed feedback that is generated from our employees directly, via a neutral third-party mediator. It ultimately gives us an unbiased insight into our operations as a business and our success as far as our human capital strategy is concerned, which is the primary motivator for our participation in the event,” says Van Heerden.
The annual ‘Deloitte Best Company to Work for Survey’ is a coveted title that is regarded by many as a barometer of working conditions in South Africa. Companies continually aspire to excel in the race for skills retention in an increasingly challenging economy where human capital plays a crucial role in the success of a business.
Van Heerden says it is the third year that Softline VIP has participated in the survey. “The feedback we receive is critically analysed and we utilise it to form the basis of an action plan that is intended to better our work processes and to create an environment in which our employees can excel as individuals and as a team.”
“Congratulations to all the winners and we are looking forward to the 2012 Best Company to Work for Survey,” concludes Van Heerden.
