Ford Mideast and Africa honored with Best Employer Brand
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.
