(MENAFN -Arab News) Unilever, one of the world?s leading fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies with brands such as Lipton, Dove, Clear, Sunsilk among many others, has been declared as the No.1 Employer of Choice for university students in Saudi Arabia, in a recent survey conducted by TNS, an independent research company. The survey was conducted among senior students from different majors across Saudi universities

Yasser Joharji, MD, Unilever KSA, said: ?This is a great achievement after all the comprehensive programs Unilever KSA undertook during 2013. Our efforts have been recognized and this will help in providing us a unique distinction as an employee-centric brand, and also in retaining top talent.

Unilever KSA has been one of the top five Employer of Choice companies for the past four years in the Kingdom

He added: ?Unilever is the No.1 Employer across several other MENA countries, and we believe we have been able to achieve this due to our focus on people, culture, career growth, reputation, as well as work on sustainability and providing a diverse environment. Building a strong and robust employer brand goes a long way in helping the company recruit a strong pool of talent and ultimately achieve the company?s long term vision of doubling its size.

The survey, which was conducted at four of the top KSA universities, involved a detailed review and analysis of employer patterns. Unilever KSA topped the scores

In 2013, Unilever KSA was engaged with university students to achieve this position. Activities ranged from talks by Unilever?s senior leadership members, on-campus activations, career-fair participation and internship programs to, most prominently, the launch of the largest cross university, cross country competition ? The Quest

?Our promise of being an employer of choice goes beyond what we showcase to the students on campus,? Said Ahmad Babatin, HR director at Unilever KSA.
