Coca-Cola Peninsula Beverages (CCPB) has been recognised as a top employer by the Top Employers Institute Africa for 2022 for the 12th consecutive year.
The award acknowledges CCPB’s exceptional HR and people management practices among 24 organisations from 31 African countries in the 2022 cohort. Certifications are based on companies’ approach to people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, well-being, diversity, and inclusion. “People are at the heart of what we do, and our priority is to consistently ensure our staff complement is not only always safe but satisfied.”, says Bryn Morse, Culture and People Development Director at CCPB.
Morse’s philosophy is that companies cannot thrive without empowered employees. By creating an enabling environment, CCPB employees are given opportunities to grow and reach their full potential. “Our values and purpose are the main factors that drive a working culture of professional satisfaction and development at CCPB. When we grow and engage our employee, it mobilises and unites team members. Ultimately, we are able to help our employees feel valued and motivated across all levels in the organisation.”
“An environment that enables continuous improvement has always been one of CCPB’s core values. We are proud to have been able to help our employees grow, and this approach will continue to help serve the company as well.”, says Morse. CCPB’s Leadership University, which was established in 2018, has been developed to enhance skills development for employees. The university is open to all employees across the organisation, democratising access to skills development, which is based on CCPB’s belief that “everyone is a leader”.
CCPB’s ethos of “People Are No.1” has guided the businesses in protecting its people, their jobs and keeping them safe at work. To confront the challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown in 2021, CCPB offered constant support to employees to ensure safety and productivity. This included implementing health and safety protocols and policies for continued remote working, employee counselling and medical support.
“We are proud of the resilience our teams at CCPB have shown in response to the ongoing pandemic and lockdown restrictions. We also hope to continue extending this beyond our business and into our local communities, through creating value and making a difference that matters. Our shared purpose and commitment to collaboration has allowed CCPB and all its employees to thrive.”
