67 companies in Thailand received the coveted HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia 2022 awards.
With the theme, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the awards this year focused on the efforts of companies in promoting diversity and inculcating inclusion in the workplace, while retaining HR Asia’s stringent evaluation criteria.
In all, 17,400 employees from 219 Thai companies took part in HR Asia’s proprietary Total Engagement Assessment Model — ranking their own employers on metrics ranging from workplace happiness and team cohesion to employee advocacy and continued job motivation. The top 67 companies who made the cut off point this year are then named HR Asia Best Companies to work for in Asia 2022 for the Thai market.
“HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia is the only award that is judged solely by the nominees’ employees — making this the most transparent award of its kind. Equally important, with 15 markets, and over 400,000 surveys done each year — the program is also the most extensive awards for employee engagement and workplace excellence across the region”, says William Ng, group publisher of Business Media International, the owner of HR Asia.
The top three workplace initiatives most valued by Thai employees are that the organization has flexible working arrangements, employees are also willing to help those who requires assistance, and employees are willing to put in the extra effort to achieve the goals and objectives of the organization.
However, the survey has also turned up concerns from employees, chief of which is lack of communication when establishing or enforcing corporate structure changes.
The WeCare awards are also given out to Advanced Info Service PLC., B.Grimm Power Public Company Limited, Boon Rawd Group, Phyathai & Paolo Hospital Group, and Suntory Beverage and Food Thailand.
2022 Thailand HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia credits HR Note Thailand as the award’s supporting partners.
“The pandemic has placed extraordinary demands on business leaders and beyond. For some companies, a near term survival plan may seem to be the only agenda for recovery but by investing in employee engagement, employees will feel supported in their jobs and in return will contribute to the overall business operations and post recovery growth,” Ng added.
The HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards recognizes companies that have shown world-class employee engagement and workplace excellence, while displaying demonstrable empathy and care for their employees.
The award covers fifteen markets across the region including mainland China, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam making this the largest recognition program and survey in the region for employee engagement.
