40 Malaysian Companies Win Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards 2014

Kuala Lumpur, 20 August 2014 – 40 companies from Malaysia were announced the winners of the Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards 2014. The awards, organised by HR trade journal – HR Asia, saw 220 companies competing to be known as the best workplaces in Malaysia and Asia.

The Awards is based on a proprietary survey developed by HR Asia and encompasses employees’ feedback and input, and management comments and presentation. In total, 6,000 Malaysian employees were surveyed to determine their intention and motivation, emotional engagement and advocacy of their respective employers.

Good Employers Score Higher

Survey participants are asked affirmative statements about their employers, and either agree or disagree with each of the statements. Based on these answers across the survey, the top 3 areas that companies in Malaysia are doing right are:

  • 1. Instilling a culture of meeting and exceeding customer’s expectations
  • 2. Aligning employees’ KPI with corporate vision and mission
  • 3. Getting employees to contribute to the success of the organisation

On the other hand, the 3 areas that score the lowest in the survey (i.e. the ones which the employees feel their companies can improve on) are:

  • 1. Employees are not receiving enough recognition at work
  • 2. Lack of transparency in decisions that affect the entire organisation
  • 3. Lack of inclusion in decision making process
