Company also Recognized as Top Employer in United States, Canada, Brazil, Chile and Mexico
NEW YORK, Feb. 29, 2016 /CNW/ -- Dimension Data, the global IT solutions and services provider, today announced it has been certified as one of the top employers in the world for outstanding employee offerings for the second consecutive year. The company was also recognized as a 2016 Top Employer in North America with certifications in the United States and Canada, as well as Brazil, Chile and Mexico.
The stringent criteria of the annual independent research carried out by the Top Employers Institute includes talent management, leadership, training and development and initiatives to attract, retain and engage employee talent.
Dennis Utter, Global Business Director for the Top Employers Institute said, "Optimal employee conditions ensure that people can develop themselves personally and professionally. Our comprehensive research concluded that Dimension Data provides an outstanding working environment and working conditions, and offers a wide range of creative initiatives - from secondary benefits and working conditions, to performance-management programs that are well thought out, and truly aligned with the culture of their company."
Brett Dawson, Dimension Data's Group CEO said, "We're very excited to be recognized as one of the top organizations in the world for the second year running. The scale and speed of technology is shifting paradigms, companies and brands, products, processes and even entire business models. Digital technology in particular, holds fantastic potential for organizations and is the key that will unlock their potential. However, to stay ahead of the competition, and accelerate our client's ambitions, we must be the best at what we do. Without our growing team of over 31,000 talented people around the globe, this would not be possible."
Marilyn Chaplin, Dimension Data's Group Executive, Human Resources said, "HR is no longer seen as a transactional, box-ticking, paper-heavy administrative department. The digital explosion is impacting the way we attract, retain, and manage talent. I believe that making the right investments in our people at the right time is vital. In today's fast-moving digital world, we're committed to continuously upskilling our talent to enable them to keep pace with changes in our industry."
"The practices we have in place are designed to support our greatest asset – our employees who so successfully meet the needs of our clients with unparalleled dedication and expertise," said Denise Messineo, Senior Vice President, People and Culture, Dimension Data Americas. "The Top Employers certifications reflect our ongoing commitment to ensuring these employees have access to the right tools and resources to consistently hone their expertise at all phases of their career."
