GroupM Spain has now been recognized for ten consecutive years and GroupM U.K. for its seventh year in a row, while Germany is recognized for the fourth time. Italy and Poland are honored to be recognized for the third time.

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says, “Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2023. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and well-being of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: the Top Employers 2023.”  

The Top Employers programme has certified and recognised 2053 Top Employers in 121 countries/regions across five continents.  

The Top Employers Institute 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, Learning, Diversity & Inclusion, Wellbeing and more.   

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 GroupM Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the U.K.’s outstanding employee conditions and earned a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.
