Recently, one of the world’s leading recruitment agencies, Randstad held a survey to find out the top 10 most attractive companies Malaysians would like to work for as well as what are their attractiveness scores in a global annual survey known as the ‘Randstad Employer Brand Research’.
Overall, the survey covers 30 countries and surveyed more than 175,000 employees. The winners are selected from the 75 largest employers in Malaysia, based on local workforce size. The outcomes are based on public perception and focus on three main areas: Overall Brand Awareness, Absolute Attractiveness, and Relative Awareness.
This creates a level playing field for all competing companies instead of giving an advantage to large multinationals with higher name recognition than the smaller companies. The awards are not open for nomination and the results are based solely on the opinions and votes of the local workforce – making it the only award that is truly representing ‘the people’s choice’.
Here is a breakdown on the top 10 employers in Malaysia this year:
10. Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB)
