ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
Best employers in Thailand chosen
The global human resources consulting and outsourcing firm this year named eight organisations in Thailand in its fifth study, part of the biannual Aon Hewitt Best Employers in Asia Pacific. They are Advanced Info Service Plc, Akara Mining Ltd, Unilever Thailand, PTT Chemical Plc, Swensen's (Thai) Ltd, Sizzler (SLRT Limited), The Westin Grande Sukhumvit and McThai Co.
More than 60 organisations registered to participate in the study, representing a mix across 20 different industries covering more than 65,000 employees.
Napas Sirivarangkul, project manager of Aon Hewitt Best Employers in Thailand, said the organisations chosen differentiated themselves with highly engaged employees. "This year, we found that engagement among Aon Hewitt Best Employers is 84%, which higher than the rest," she said.
The best employers promote a performance-driven culture in which leaders are working closely with managers, as well as human resource department, to create and foster an environment that instils continuous improvement and accountability to achieve high performance goals.
Managers not only have a clear grasp of the goals and the skills to convey them to their departments, they also proactively set stretch goals and show discipline in providing performance-based feedback and coaching.
Employees of awarded organisations believe they receive clear and inspiring strategic direction from leaders.
"They also see evidence that leaders in their organisation 'walk the talk' _ delivering on promises and commitments made to employees."
Ms. Napas said managers and employees have a clear sense of their role and accountability. The leaders and managers are always there to listen to employees' new ideas and suggestion so the employees have a sense of ownership in the tasks.
