TAIPEI, Aug. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- 97 companies in Taiwan 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, 26,200 employees from 330 Taiwanese 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 97 companies who made the cut off point this year are then named HR Asia Best Companies to work for in Asia 2022 for the Taiwanese 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 Taiwanese employees are policies that foster employees to improve contribution at the workplace, working together and taking ownership of their work, and willingly assisting others who require assistance.
However, the survey has also turned up concerns from employees, chief of which is lack of communication with former employees, checking up on their situation or well-being after they have left the company.
A total of 8 companies are presented with a gold plated version of the statuette 'Harmonia' for winning the award for the 5th consecutive year. These companies are AbbVie Biopharmaceuticals GmbH Taiwan Branch, Allianz Taiwan Life Insurance Company Ltd., Baxter Healthcare Ltd, CTBC Financial Holding Co.,Ltd., DBS Bank (Taiwan) Ltd., Taishin, Financial Holding Co., Ltd., Takeda Pharmaceutical Taiwan Limited, and YungChing Realty.
The WeCare awards are also given out to Allianz Taiwan Life Insurance Company Ltd., ATEN INTERNATIONAL Co., Ltd., Avery Dennison RIS Taiwan Ltd., Avnet Asia Pte Ltd. Taiwan Branch, Baxter Healthcare Ltd, British American Tobacco Services Limited Taiwan Branch, E Ink Holdings Inc., E.SUN Commercial Bank, Ltd., Kimberly-Clark Taiwan, Moet Hennessy Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd., Taiwan Branch, Nova Measuring Instruments Taiwan Ltd., Novartis (Taiwan) Co., Ltd., Takeda Pharmaceutical Taiwan Limited, Yuen Foong Yu Consumer Products Co., Ltd.
2022 Taiwan HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia credits MGR Consulting and Pasona 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 recognises 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 programme and survey in the region for employee engagement.
