Top Employers is dedicated to helping organisations with world-class employee conditions become recognised for the great employers they are, which in turn helps them advance. This strongly aligns with a key objective of the event to bring together the world’s best employer brands and the agencies they collaborate with. We’re thrilled they will be sharing insights at the event on what makes a world class employer brand.”

David Plink, CEO at Top Employers Institute said, “We are excited to be announced as a Regional Community Partner. We cannot wait to meet the Global Employer Branding Community in Lisbon. Along with many of the world’s top organisations who will be present, we look forward to contributing to advancing employer brand excellence through the partnership.

Since the event launch in 2016, leaders have been inspired by learning and networking with many of the world’s top employer brands including Google, Salesforce, adidas, Facebook, Volvo, Heineken and SAP who have presented at the event.

Mr Plink added, “The Top Employers Certification Programme is dedicated to accelerating the impact of people strategies to help enrich the world of work. As a global certifier we focus on people practices and we are privileged to recognise organisations with the opportunity to become a Top Employer in their industry.
