GroupM UK Certified as a Top Employer 2019

London, 31 January 2019 – GroupM UK is proud to announce that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings, for a third year in a row.

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. GroupM UK Limited has been awarded the exclusive Top Employers United Kingdom 2019 certification.

Top Employers certification is highly sought after, although few companies ever achieve this distinction. GroupM is one of only 90 companies in the UK to achieve Top Employer status in 2019, having demonstrated excellence in HR practices and employee conditions. Other renowned organisations which have also achieved certification in the UK this year include SAP, Santander, Pfizer, Bentley, PepsiCo, ASDA, Whitbread, and Harrods.

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 UK Limited’s outstanding employee conditions and earned a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.

The Top Employers Institute assessed GroupM UK Limited’s employee offerings on the following criteria:

  • Talent Strategy
  • Workforce Planning
  • Talent Acquisition
  • On-boarding
  • Learning & Development
  • Performance Management
  • Leadership Development
  • Career & Succession Management
  • Compensation & Benefits
  • Culture

“It’s an honour for GroupM UK to be recognised by Top Employers UK for the third year running. Our staff work hard every day to deliver excellent results for our clients in an inclusive, optimistic and rewarding company culture,” said Tom George, CEO at GroupM UK. “We continue to attract, retain and invest in the best expertise from across the media industry and further afield, due to our excellent benefits, quality training and offering a career path which is second-to-none.”

Top Employers CEO David Plink said that, “We believe that the 2019 Certified organisations demonstrate exceptional employee conditions and encourage the development of these practices by putting their people first. These companies help enrich the world of work with their outstanding dedication to HR excellence and because of this, they are recognised as an employer of choice”.
