Randstad has announced the winners of the 2018’s Most Attractive Employer in Malaysia. Hosted for the third consecutive year and based on the results from the Randstad Employer Brand Research, Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS) has been crowned Most Attractive Employer in Malaysia for 2018.
Ryan Carroll, country director at Randstad Malaysia said: “We would like to congratulate the winners for their consistent performance in ensuring and promoting a powerful employer brand that resonates strongly with employees in Malaysia. In the three years that we have conducted this survey in Malaysia, we see more and more companies starting to evaluate and redesign their employer brand so as to enjoy the benefits it brings to their talent attraction and retention efforts. This is especially true for Malaysia where companies are constantly competing to hire, engage and retain the best people from a very limited talent pool.”
Most Attractive Employer Awards
1. Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS)
2. Shell Malaysia
3. Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad
The awards are presented to the top three companies that have received the highest attractiveness score in the survey that job seekers in Malaysia will want to work for. The winners for this category are selected from the 75 largest employers in Malaysia based on local workforce size.
PETRONAS climbed one spot up this year to claim the award for 2018’s Most Attractive Employer after coming in second for the previous two years. The top three most attractive employers remained unchanged from last year.
Dato' Raiha Azni Abd Rahman, Senior Vice President, Group Human Resource Management, PETRONAS said, “At PETRONAS, we believe that talent is the most fundamental asset to our success as a leading oil and gas multinational. As a result, we have always been able to attract, motivate and retain the best of talents not only in Malaysia but in the countries we operate in. We offer vast career growth opportunities through a structured career, leadership and capability development programmes. We also place a great emphasis on diversity and inclusion as well as the creation of a conducive working environment for our people to flourish. Flexible working arrangements, newly designed workplace, unpaid study leave, extended maternity leave, returnee programmes (upon resignation) and improved medical benefits are some of the changes we have recently implemented. We are humbled by this honour; being able to be one of the top three winners for three years in a row is not an easy feat but we will not stop here. PETRONAS will always strive and raise the benchmark to stand out as the nation’s employer of choice.”
