Using international standards, the BEST Employers� project identifies the front-runners in excellent HR management. The projects’ unique approach is characterised by HR policy based research, objectivity and an independent and selective assessment. Key to the project is that all participants must exceed the objective rating standards in the research.

We are highly optimistic about the future, not only of the company, but also of the country, and believe strongly in ARM’s ability to continue creating value for all our stakeholders.�
