Tsebo solutions Group has been recognized as an ‘Employer of Choice’ in South Africa. Being certified as a 2023 Top Employer confirms an organization’s dedication to a better world of work through its excellent HR policies and people practices.

For Tsebo, the certification is a natural advancement, as the company has been innovating workplaces and building a legacy for the businesses and employees of the future for more than half a century.


As a leading African Integrated Workplace Management Solutions Provider, Tsebo Solutions Group offers clients improved workplace productivity that supports their success. From city-based corporate headquarters to hard-to-reach remote camps, Tsebo creates, manages and maintains environments that are pleasant to be in, easier and safer to work in and ultimately enhance employee engagement and productivity. The company specializes in Facilities Management, Catering, Cleaning and Hygiene, Security, Energy, Pest control, and more.

Elanie Kruger, Tsebo’s Group Chief Human Resources Officer, says: “We are exceptionally proud of this achievement, which marks another milestone in our over 50-year rich history of caring for people and reimagining the world of work. As part of our high-performance service culture, we are committed to accelerating our people strategies by benchmarking policies with proven HR best practices globally. It supports our values and creates a safe environment where employees feel recognized, are given opportunities to grow and, in turn, shape a brighter future for all.”

It’s particularly important in a services-led business like Tsebo’s, where their over 32,000 strong workforce forms the heartbeat of the company and is their true differentiator in the industry. At its core, Workplace Management Solutions is a holistic approach to an industry of people taking care of people. Therefore, Tsebo’s first priority is the health, safety and well-being of people—including its employees, clients and communities. Developing people to serve people, to uplift society, is not only the company’s purpose statement but the mantra that Tsebo has lived by to achieve its sustainable development goals and growth objectives.

Tsebo Group Chief Executive Officers Tim Walters and Chris Jardine say: “We believe that Tsebo’s solid people practices, passion for developing and upskilling people and drive to embed sustainability in everything we do, have earned us this internationally relevant acknowledgement. With an overall score of over 82%, benchmarked against a globally certified group of more than 2,050 Top Employers, this accolade clearly sets us apart. It assures clients that we are a responsible, ethical employer that equips our employees to provide world-class services and solutions.”


Tsebo’s in-house Learning and Development Academy trains and upskills approximately 40,000 people annually across the continent. The result is a knowledgeable workforce that is in touch with every nuance of clients’ needs – innovating and evolving with clients’ business challenges and requirements.

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organizations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers 600 practices in six HR domains across 20 topics. Participants then submit evidence and are independently audited, where their practices are thoroughly interrogated. The adjudicators were impressed by Tsebo’s use of innovation and technology, which added to Tsebo’s positive results.

“We commenced with a digitization strategy a few years back and identified the needs of our employees, clients and business. Covid-19 accelerated the need to prioritize our digitization journey. It was clear that we needed to change the way we do things, and challenge ourselves to work more innovatively and efficiently, enriching the world of work for our people, and, subsequently, for our clients,” says Kruger.
