11 Mar 2015

IT solutions and services provider Dimension Data has today announced it has been certified as one of the top five employers in the world for outstanding employee offerings, based on annual independent research carried out by the Top Employers Institute.

The stringent criteria that organisations are assessed on include talent management, leadership, training and development and initiatives to attract, retain and engage employee talent.

Dimension Data NZ CEO Jo Healey says, “A service provider is only as good as its team, and the ICT space is no exception. 

“We aim to keep the team productive, engaged and focussed on delivering outstanding client outcomes,” says Healey. “As we continue to transform from a systems integrator to a services integrator, our work in this area becomes even more important, so we’re thrilled to be recognised for it."

Judith Oude Sogtoen, director of International Business Development for the Top Employers Institute, says, “Our extensive research concluded that Dimension Data Global forms part of a select group of employers that advance employee conditions worldwide. Their people are well taken care of.”

She says, “Now that they have received the Top Employers Global 2015 certification, they can truly consider themselves at the top of an exclusive group of the world’s best employers.” 

Brett Dawson, Dimension Data’s group CEO says, “We’re extremely proud to be recognised as one of the top five organisations in the world for our employee practices. Dimension Data’s purpose is to make a difference - first and foremost for our clients, our valuable and talented people, as well as our shareholders and our societies. “

Dawsons adds, “This accolade validates our philosophy of investing in our constantly expanding team of over 26,000 employees and helping them to develop personally and professionally.”

Marilyn Chaplin, Dimension Data’s group executive, human resources adds, “In the highly competitive IT landscape, Dimension Data has a clear strategy to attract, engage, develop and retain talent across all levels of the organisation.”

Chaplin says, “Our innovative Fast-Track programme helps attract and retain young talent in our organisation, and our global Leadership Forum provides a multi-layered approach to support the ongoing development of our leaders.

“The investments we make in our people empower them to grow their skills and stay current in the fast-moving world of technology.”

“Every employee has access to a world-class cloud-based learning platform that affords access to the very latest in education opportunities,” she says. “I believe the winning culture we’ve created is one of our greatest assets and really makes Dimension Data an outstanding place to work."
