26.10.2017 - Press release

German-South African company Schauenburg International - Africa Group is part of a selection of companies that has received 2018's Top Employers South Africa certification.

The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices.

The institute has just announced the results of this year’s research into the employee conditions of significant employers in South Africa. Schauenburg International - Africa Group is one of the selected 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 Schauenburg International - Africa Group’s outstanding employee conditions and earned a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers.

The Top Employers Institute assessed Schauenburg International - Africa Group’s employee offerings on criteria such as Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning and Leadership Development, among others.

Florian Schauenburg, Schauenburg International Group CEO:

“We are delighted and proud to recognise this great HR award. This is quite an achievement of the Management team and all employees in our Africa Group and we highly honour this and congratulate. This achievement also strongly reflects our corporate philosophy and strategy to value and focus on HR development and employer excellence. For us humans are the most important capital and asset within our international Group.”

Dr Dieter Kovar, Schauenburg International – Africa Group CEO:

“In an increasingly competitive world, we need to benchmark ourselves with the best. Only attractive employee offerings, facilitate sustainable growth of people and business, making us win the war for talents.”

Tanya Best, Group Human Resources Manager at Schauenburg International – Africa Group:

“To be part of the 2018 Top Employer certification this year is a momentous achievement and truly a proud moment for our organisation. In a competitive market and shortage of skills in South Africa it has become imperative for companies to reinvent the way they attract and retain talent. By becoming a Top Employer allows us to showcase and promote our company for the great company we are.”
