A press release issued on Thursday said the company was chosen based on the largest percentage of positive responses to two assertions within the recently administered Korn Ferry employee opinion surveys:
1. I feel proud to work for the company.
2. I would recommend the company as a good place to work.
To calculate the winners, Korn Ferry analysed the percentage of employees who “strongly agreed” or “agreed” with the two statements to create an overall score.
“These statements are proven measures of strong employee engagement and a healthy employer brand,” said Ben Hubbard, senior client partner, Surveys & Listening, Korn Ferry. “Because these statements are consistently used by companies around the world to benchmark levels of employee engagement, they provide an excellent foundation for our award.”
Fifty-two companies in 47 countries across the globe are recognised as Korn Ferry 2018 Employee Engagement Award winners, including Groupe Renault, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, L’ORÉAL, Luck Companies, Mitsubishi Corporation, and Ralph Lauren. In Thailand, three companies received the award including L’Oreal Thailand, Tesco Lotus and Exxon Mobil.
Mark Royal, Senior Director at the Korn Ferry Institute, said: “High levels of employee engagement will help businesses meet the challenges ahead, contributing to productivity, agility, and attraction and retention of talent. Engagement is a critical business metric, as proven by Korn Ferry research, that shows high levels of employee engagement can boost revenue growth by up to two and a half times.
“An engaged workforce has the power to deliver tangible competitive advantage in the ever-evolving war for talent and discretionary performance.”
“We are honoured to be named the Most Engaging Place to Work by Korn Ferry. We thank all our employees who shared their pride and recommendation of L’Oréal Thailand as a great place to work as part of the survey, they are our soul and source of pride.” said Ines Caldeira, Managing Director, L’Oreal Thailand.
