Over 6,000 employees from almost 200 companies across Asia responded to a survey that the publication conducted. This covers eight markets covers eight other markets including China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Thailand.
“The HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia is the only program in the market that relies 100% on the input of employees across three key factors: emotional engagement, intention, and motivation (mind), and behavior and advocacy (soul),” says William Ng, Editor-in-Chief and Group Publisher of Business Media International, the publisher of HR Asia.
Good Employers Score Higher
Survey participants were given affirmative statements about their employers and were asked to either agree or disagree with each of the statements. Based on these answers across the survey, the top 3 areas that employees in Asia agree about their jobs are:
- Meeting or exceeding customer expectation (Average score of 4.34/5)
- Employees know clearly what is expected from them at work (Average score of 4.33/5)
- I have good friends at work (Average score of 4.32/5)
IBM scored significantly higher in these areas compared to other participants, which indicates that the global company is more transparent, supportive of employees’ growth, and made more effort to create a good working environment for its own employees.
