Ford Mideast and Africa hon­ored with Best Em­ployer Brand

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS -

Ford Mo­tor Com­pany has been rec­og­nized once more as one of the world’s most at­trac­tive em­ploy­ers ac­cord­ing to LinkedIn, the world’s largest pro­fes­sional net­work on the in­ter­net.

Fol­low­ing on from last year’s suc­cess when Ford Mo­tor Com­pany was named one of LinkedIn’s “Top 50 Most In De­mand Em­ploy­ers in Mid­dle East and North Africa”, the com­pany has scooped the top award in the grow­ing com­pa­nies (em­ploy­ers with less than 500 em­ploy­ees) cat­e­gory, tak­ing home the prize for Best Em­ployer Brand on LinkedIn at the re­cent Tal­ent Awards held in Dubai.

The LinkedIn Tal­ent Awards evening was an ex­clu­sive event gath­er­ing ex­ec­u­tives from lead­ing com­pa­nies in the Mid­dle East and North Africa to be in­spired, meet peers and cel­e­brate suc­cess. Since the in­cep­tion and uti­liza­tion of LinkedIn by Ford Mid­dle East and Africa, Ford has in­curred zero agency costs for re­cruit­ment.

“An award in this cat­e­gory, which mea­sures em­ployer brand pres­ence on its LinkedIn Ca­reer page, against over 800 other com­pa­nies, is ex­tremely sat­is­fy­ing,” said An­ton van der Walt, hu­man re­sources di­rec­tor, Ford Mid­dle East and Africa. “The award also takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the en­gage­ment with the con­tent posted on the page. Given that less than 24 months ago, Ford Mid­dle East and Africa had zero pres­ence on LinkedIn makes us es­pe­cially proud of this ac­com­plish­ment.”

Ford is a place where skilled and mo­ti­vated teams cre­ate in­spired prod­ucts that ac­tu­ally make a bet­ter world. By choice, Ford is an equal op­por­tu­nity em­ployer com­mit­ted to a cul­tur­ally di­verse work­force.

Em­ploy­ees are en­cour­aged to be­come brand am­bas­sadors for Ford, to proudly wear the ‘One Ford, One Plan, One Team, One Goal’ badge with honor, which arms the team with the tools to help pro­mote Ford Mid­dle East and Africa’s em­ploy­ment brand and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.
