CHEP, a leader in supply chain solutions, has been recognised as a Global Top Employer for 2023 by Top Employers Institute, a global certifier recognising excellence in employee conditions.
Receiving global accreditation for the first time, CHEP, as part of the Brambles Group, was among only 15 Global Top Employers in 2023 to be recognised for outstanding HR policies and practices worldwide. CHEP and Brambles have also expanded the number of regions and countries where they are accredited, earning the Top Employer seal in Asia Pacific for the first time while retaining Top Employer status in Europe, Latin America and Africa, along with 25 countries across every region.
Patrick Bradley, Brambles Chief People Officer, said: “Becoming a Global Top Employer in 2023 is a great moment of pride for CHEP. It recognises the ongoing efforts we have made to build a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace that offers employees a purposeful and fulfilling experience. We continue to take strides towards our “Workplace Positive” goals as part of our 2025 Sustainability Strategy, to deliver a truly inclusive environment that fosters innovation, growth and agility.”
The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics.
Among the categories where CHEP excelled against peers were People Strategy, Leadership, Diversity & Inclusion and Sustainability.
In 2022, CHEP achieved 33% of women in management roles globally and reached 40% female representation on its Board. Following an increased focus on employee health, safety and wellbeing, the company recorded an 18% improvement in its Brambles Injury Frequency Rate (BIFR) performance, reflecting targeted efforts to reach Zero Harm across its global operations. Top Employers Institute CEO, David Plink, said: “Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: an exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2023. Amongst this community of outstanding organisations, CHEP has proven its commitment to employees on a global scale. This consistency in people practices across the globe characterises an exclusive group of companies that have achieved a global certification through the Top Employers Programme. We are proud to announce and celebrate these companies and their achievement in 2023.”
