Thirty-five Hong Kong companies have been named the HR Asia Best Companies to Work For in Asia by the human resources publication, HR Asia.
This year, 10,028 employees from a total of 218 companies across Hong Kong responded to the HR Asia Best Companies to Work For in Asia Survey.
The survey also covers ten other markets across Asia, including Cambodia, Mainland China, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Award winners include six-time consecutive winners New World Development and Tung, Swarovski (five-time consecutive winner), as well as first-time winners Foodpanda, Lenovo, Link Asset Management, and Sino Group.
Unlike previous years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the winners were announced in a special film that premiered on Youtube on 25 September 2020.
Titled ‘Employee First’, the film cum virtual ceremony not only honoured and celebrated the winners of the HR Asia Best Companies to Work For in Asia, but also highlighted a story of strength, resilience, empathy and care amidst the pandemic.
“As early as February, we took decisive actions to replicate the magic formula that made HR Asia Best Companies to Work For in Asia Awards the industry’s standards bearer – into a film. One that pays tribute to the companies that care and uncover the stories behind the challenges faced by these companies and their employees,” said William Ng, group publisher and editor-in-chief of Business Media International, the publisher of HR Asia.
