Methodology and how it works

  • A detailed survey was circulated among the global African talent pool. This study was completed by 13,242 African professionals, representing every one of the continent’s 54 markets. 17% of the respondents were based outside Africa.
  • Of the respondents, 70% are in full-time employment and 30% are students or graduates looking for work. There was a similar 70-30 split between male and female respondents. The survey featured more than 90 questions and took on average 15 minutes to complete.
  • Professionals provided their views on 29 separate attraction drivers that define a great employer, spanning a wide number of areas: reward and benefits, flexible work arrangements, healthcare, training and career development, the importance of an organisation’s commitment to social responsibility, leadership and senior management, financial strength, culture and values and a company’s reputation (its brand image).
  • Respondents proceeded to score 3 selected companies (from a curated list of 500 of the continent’s top businesses) against these criteria. Respondents were only given a choice of companies that operated within their given country of citizenship and then asked to rate three companies from that list. These reviews form the basis of reports, awards and the Top 100 ranking.
