The Top Employers awards, run by the Top Employers Institute, recognizes excellence in people practices, based on independent research conducted by the Corporate Research Foundation (CRF).
"ARM has built its reputation for inspiring change by promoting rapid innovation in the technology sector," said Jenny Duvalier, executive vice president of people, ARM. "Our business thrives because the best people want to work for us in the UK and around the world, and we are continually striving to ensure that positive momentum. There is no simple formula to HR excellence; it is about exactly the right balance of rewarding effort, nurturing talent at all levels and giving people the authority to take that next creative step. We call our policy 'Enabling the Extraordinary' because that is exactly our goal."
ARM was awarded the Top Employers UK 2014 certificate at the awards ceremony held at Old Billingsgate, London.
"In 2013 we've seen trends of the last couple of years starting to come to fruition with many Top Employers starting to reap the results from the coaching, mentoring, and apprenticeship programs they've implemented," said Eleanor Nickerson, manager of UK operations for Top Employers Institute. "We're seeing a heavier focus on succession planning, in particular with companies developing their current and future leadership. Many of our certified companies have developed creative and inclusive leadership programs that help to develop their top talent and ensure that it's a win-win situation – you have engaged employees who have an exciting and rewarding career path ahead of them, and organizations with talented, long-term leadership that's aligned with their business."
Elements of ARM's 'Enabling the Extraordinary' people policy highlighted include:

About Top Employers Institute
The annual international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognizes leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions; nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organization; and which strive to continuously optimize employment practices.
