Commenting on this year’s shortlist, Kincentric Best
Employers judge Chong Chye Neo said, “It is very encouraging to see good diversity
across different industries, size of businesses and employee population in this
year’s shortlist for Kincentric Best Employers. It is also very heartening to
note that all the shortlisted companies demonstrated a strong employee care
culture, especially in the current pandemic. After a robust debate that
explored various perspectives with judges from diverse backgrounds, we have
selected Malaysia’s best employers; organizations that have exemplified people
culture as a key enabler of their business strategy.”

 

In light of the
current environment of digitalization, globalization and talent shortages,
Kincentric’s recent research and analysis has identified four critical
differentiating factors of leading organizations — employee engagement, agility,
engaging leadership and talent focus. Companies shortlisted for this year’s
Best Employers are evaluated against these four factors, and rank in the top
quartile for employee engagement along with two out of three factors. In 2019,
Kincentric Best Employers in Malaysia scored 86% across all four critical
differentiating factors, excelling beyond the market average of 67% for
employee engagement, 65% for agility, 67% for engaging leadership and 64% for
talent focus.

and insights on employee experience during the pandemic. The pillars are senior
leadership & communication, care & concern, wellness and safety, and
