The institute recognises leading employers around the world, with a focus on those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and strive to continuously optimise employment practices.

Sanral’s Corporate Services Executive, Heidi Harper, said the agency is particularly pleased with the achievement.

“This has now been recognised. An outstanding aspect of Sanral is its ability to attract and keep top staff as well as the fact that its personnel costs remain remarkably low - less than 1.3% of total expenditure,” Harper said.

Speaking at the award ceremony, Sanral’s CEO Nazir Alli said: “We have put in a lot of effort in the past 16 years of our existence to make Sanral an employer of choice.

“This includes providing our staff with security and stability, competitive salaries and benefits packages, encouraging a work-life balance and providing the opportunity for career progression. These are all factors that matter to our colleagues.”

Alli emphasised that what ultimately matters in being a good employer is having staff members that are engaged with their roles and their organisation.

“There are huge benefits for an organisation in terms of staff engagement. Colleagues who are highly engaged produce results and this has shown in the quality of roads the agency delivers and the successive unqualified audit reports we have had,” said Alli, who dedicated the award to all Sanral workers.

The agency builds, maintains and manages some of the best roads worldwide.
