SAS Recognised as a Certified Top Employer UK 2020

SAS has been officially recognised by the Top Employers Institute as a Top Employer 2020 in the UK.

Organisations certified as Top Employers dedicate themselves to providing the very best working environment for employees through their progressive ‘people-first’ HR practices.  The Top Employers Institute Global Certification Programme has certified and recognised more than 1,600 Top Employers in more than 119 countries/regions across five continents. 

The HR Best Practice Survey encompasses over 100 questions which cover 600 ‘People Development’ practices across 10 topics: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits and Culture.

This is the latest in a series of awards SAS receives globally each year for being one of the best places to work. CEO and founder Dr Jim Goodnight places great importance on creating a best-in-class workplace culture, and this has been the case ever since the company was founded more than 40 years ago.

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink said: “To become recognised as a Top Employer, an organisation will have to prove that the implementation of their people strategies enriches the world of work of their employees.  The certified participants are a shining example of a dedication to people practices as they continuously commit to empowering their employees for a better world of work. Congratulations!”

Charles Senabulya, VP & Country Manager for SAS UK & Ireland, commented: “This is the third year in a row that SAS has achieved this recognition and it’s achieved through a strong commitment to listen to and work alongside our employees.

“The SAS UKI Management Team includes HR and leadership representatives from across the business matrix.  They work collaboratively and collectively to ensure that there is fairness, consistency and best practice in the employee experience. The aim is to create a strong and positive local community for all where our core values are reinforced every day and where pride and passion are at the heart of what we do and how we do it.”
