  • 0-2 yrs employees are happiest with their current workplace and are less likely to stay.

 

Methodology

The process of selecting the top 100  involved an online survey targeted at workers in all sectors through social media, email and our extensive database of professionals and experts across industries.The survey captured questions on work experience, salary parameters and working conditions. The survey focused on Gender, Age, Employment Status, Monthly Salary, Current Organization of Employment, Reasons for Commitment to Current Employer and others

Respondent Categorization

The categorization of respondents for the Best 100 Companies was based on the premise that employed respondents are better qualified to provide accurate and unbiased views on their current or past organizations.

All respondents were classified according to Age Bracket, Seniority Level, Monthly Salary and duration at the company. Only seniority level had a weighting and impact on the final results, with the senior level carrying the most weighting and entry-level carrying the least. The Business Owner level carried no weighting so as not to make the results biased.

Nominations by current and former employees had a higher weighting than those who nominated companies based on hearsay or public perception. The final scores per company were then normalized to take account of companies who have thousands of employees. Only companies confirmed to have more than 50 employees were considered in the final result.

The major work parameters responsible for the satisfaction ratings indicated above were centered primarily on Monthly Salary, Work/Life Balance, Career Growth and Advancement, Welfare Benefits and Job Security in order of importance.

 

How to rank as one of the best 100 companies to work for

The top 100 companies to work for are determined by the general public, industry experts and current employees. This is how your organization can also rank high on the list;

 

  • Nurture a sense of pride

Build your brand into one that your employees will be proud to be associated with, support them with incentives and policies that will encourage them to embody your vision, mission and values.

  • Overhaul your company culture

Your company culture is what determines whether employees will love going to work or absolutely despise the experience. Create a culture that harnesses the strengths of all individuals and promotes an enriching work environment.

Provide opportunities for employees to expand their skills and grow into new roles and opportunities because if they can’t grow with you, growth will take them away from you.

  • Provide a competitive salary & benefits package:

One thing that the top 10 companies have in common is the competitive salary & benefits package they offer. Giving remuneration that is in sync with industry standards is a sure way to endear current and future employees to you.

  1. It’s funny. Never think working with known companies in the country means staff is satisfied. I can’t comment on some companies I am seeing here, but don’t be deceived

  2. The list is quite colorful not judt due to the logos but very one sighted selection as major employment creating companies are totally passed by in your listing. In example ASHFOAM, DURAPLAST, NESSTRA GHANA. All part of the Hitti Group of Companies giving employment to over 4000. So in your next survey you may consider a broader and more in depth approach?
    Thanks

  3. This survey is based on social media information. I think you want to say the top 100 companies who’s employees show signs of good living.

  4. Is this report skewed in favour of companies based in Accra? Hey you can’t leave out Otuasekan Rural Bank! What? Check the stats. Be serious guys.

  5. Great to see this report and hoping it will be the first of many detailed analysis into the job market and employment sector in Ghana. It would be interesting to know what percentage of the top 100 companies is actually Ghanaian owned and/or managed. Congratulations to those who made the grade. Keep us the good work.

  6. Great Job Jobberman, keep up the good job.But why no food processing companies or restaurants ,hotels we need to know about them too.Thank u

  7. Please if you think a company is doing well in that regard, you have to take part in the survey. answer the questions they ask. if the result is not true, then the employee’s answers to the questions are not true. This is not the fault of jobberman.
