CHEP Recognised as Top Employer in Saudi Arabia

Certified for the 4th consecutive year as a Top Employer in Saudi Arabia by the Top Employers Institute, CHEP, part of the Brambles Group and the global leader in supply chain solutions, also stands among the exclusive group of 17 elite organisations worldwide to achieve the coveted Global Top Employer certification.

The Top Employer certification is a testament to CHEP’s dedication to fostering a workplace culture that prioritizes employee wellbeing, professional development, and overall job satisfaction. This recognition is a result of the company’s continuous efforts to align human resources practices with global standards of excellence.

Commenting on the achievement, Victoria Pickles, Human Resources Vice President for CHEP Asia Pacific, India, Middle East, Türkiye and Africa said, “The dual certification – both national and global – demonstrates our relentless efforts in enhancing employee experiences, supporting career development, inspiring innovation and fostering a workplace culture centred around diversity, inclusion, and sustainability. This achievement reflects our ongoing commitment to creating a workplace where our employees feel that they belong, can thrive, develop, and contribute to our collective success. Being recognised as a Top Employer is not just about the present, it is a commitment to continuous improvement in our future. We learn a lot from the process of benchmarking our efforts and we commit to using this knowledge to nurture our talent, foster leadership and continue to create an amazing place to work.”

Chris Veerasamy, Regional Leader for India, Middle East, and Türkiye at CHEP, added, “It is a special honour to receive the Top Employer certification for the 4th time in Saudi Arabia. This certification validates our commitment to matching the workplace experience with the expectations of our people and global best practices. The outstanding success of CHEP today is indicative to the substantial contributions of our dedicated workforce, tirelessly striving to shape CHEP into an exemplary organisation. In Saudi Arabia, we have attained an outstanding 100% score in talent acquisition, demonstrating our dedication to thorough talent evaluation, fair hiring practices, alignment with our employee value proposition, and a strategic approach to address long-term talent acquisition goals in line with the Saudi Vision 2030. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the engagement of our employees to make our company an employer of choice in the country.”

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Diversity & Inclusion, Wellbeing and more.

In 2023, CHEP surpassed its 2025 goal of 40% female representation on its Board while achieving 36.3% of women in management roles globally. It also continued to improve its safety performance, delivering its best year on record with a 31% reduction of injury rates based on FY20 levels. To better support its diverse workforce, it expanded its range of accessibility schemes and now offers employee resource groups across race, disability, gender and literacy/disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. The company sees the Top Employer achievement as a motivation to continue driving innovation, cultivating employee wellbeing, and contributing to the growth and prosperity of the global workforce.

CHEP has been recognised as a Top Employer in 26 countries around the world, including Australia, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Namibia, New Zealand, Poland, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Swaziland, Thailand, Türkiye, Zimbabwe, the United Kingdom and the United States, while earning regional Top Employer recognition in Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America.
