Media Release: Malaysia’s Top 75 Companies Revealed: Randstad Employer Brand Research 2017
KUALA LUMPUR, 21 MARCH 2017 - The Randstad Employer Brand Awards (previously known as the Randstad Award) is making its second appearance in Malaysia. Recruitment firm Randstad, in anticipation of the upcoming announcement of Malaysia’s most attractive companies on the 19th of April 2017, released the Top 75 Malaysian organisations list.

Commonly known as the people’s choice awards, the Randstad Employer Brand Research awards is a leading voice in employer branding conversations, providing dedicated content to various target audiences, supported by the leading research in employer branding.

After expanding its borders to Malaysia last year, we are proud to say that the Randstad Employer Brand Research is the most representative and inclusive employer brand research in the world. From our 2017 employer branding research, we aimed to garner the public perception of Malaysia’s largest employers based on these three criterias; overall brand awareness, absolute attractiveness and relative attractiveness. This builds an even playing field for all participating organizations instead of creating an upper hand to large multinationals with stronger name recognition than smaller local companies.

Country Director of Randstad Malaysia, Mr Ryan Carroll said, "Each company has made a unique mark of their own on the Malaysian employment landscape. The REBR will differentiate Randstad as a thought leader in the HR world. We thrive to build world-class expertise about employer branding, employees, employers and sectors. We’re excited about doing this for the second time in Malaysia and we look forward to influence decision-makers at the top and live up to the claim of shaping the world of work.”

About Randstad Employer Brand Research

Celebrating its 17th edition globally, the Randstad Employer Brand Research Award is presented each year to the most attractive employer in 26 countries across the globe. It is based on the outcome of the most representative and inclusive employer branding research in the world.The outcome of the Employer Brand Award is based on public perception and focuses on three main areas: overall brand awareness, absolute attractiveness and relative attractiveness. This creates a level playing field for all competing companies instead of giving an advantage to large multinationals with higher name recognition than smaller companies. This award is 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’.The 75 largest companies are selected in each participating country, usually with more than 1,000 employees. This list is presented to a representative cross section of relevant respondents based on region, age and gender. Respondents were asked to identify companies they recognize and indicate if they would like to work for them. This is then followed up with an evaluation of attractiveness factors, such as salary, benefits, work atmosphere and job content, for each of the companies.
