Comair Limited certified as one of the Top Employers South Africa 2018

Posted 13 October 2017 · Add Comment

Comair Limited has announced that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings.

The annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. Comair has been awarded the exclusive Top Employers South Africa 2018 certification.

The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. It has just announced the results of this year’s research into the employee conditions of significant employers in South Africa. Comair is one of the select organisations to achieve the Top Employers South Africa 2018 certification and delighted to be officially recognised as a leading employer. 

Crucial to the Top Employers process is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard in order to achieve the certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified Comair’s outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.

The Top Employers Institute assessed Comair’s employee offerings on the following criteria:

• Talent Strategy

• Workforce Planning

• On-boarding

• Learning & Development

• Performance Management

• Leadership Development

• Career & Succession Management

• Compensation & Benefits

• Culture

David Plink, CEO at Top Employers Institute said: “Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that Comair Limited provides an outstanding employment environment and offers a wide range of creative initiatives, from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programmes that are well thought out and truly aligned with the culture of their company.”

Erik Venter, CEO of Comair, added: “We are delighted with this award. It’s easy enough for employers to say that their people are their greatest asset, but living that value requires consistency and investment. A good indicator of Comair’s commitment to that ethos is that more than half of our staff complement of 2 100 have been with the company for more than 10 years. We believe that’s due to stable leadership and finding the right people. That has many benefits, including a war-chest of institutional memory and a sense of family.”

Eve Liebetrau, Human Resources Executive Manager of Comair, concurs and adds: “Comair’s evolution, from simply operating two airline brands, into a diversified travel business, offers us the opportunity to help people build careers in a variety of aviation- and travel-related fields, while retaining the focus required to run an airline profitably, safely and efficiently.”
