Randstad - one of the world’s leading recruitment agencies - today released the list of the top 20 most attractive employers in Malaysia ahead of the annual Randstad Employer Brand Awards to be held on April 19, 2018. These 20 companies scored the highest attractiveness scores in a global annual survey known as the ‘Randstad Employer Brand Research’.

Ryan Carroll, Country Director at Randstad Malaysia said, “In today’s fiercely competitive talent-short market, a strong and consistent employer brand is crucial to attracting and retaining the right talent. This is the third year that we are doing the research in Malaysia, so we are able to identify opportunities to improve workforce productivity even before they present themselves. Our research aims to help companies identify both their competitive advantage and employer branding gaps, so that they can build and cultivate their own unique employer brand to attract, engage and retain the best talent.”

The Most Attractive Employer Awards will be presented to the top three companies that have received the highest attractiveness score. The winners are selected from the 75 largest employers in Malaysia, based on local workforce size.

The 2018 edition of the research covers 30 countries and surveyed more than 175,000 employees.

about randstad employer brand research.

Celebrating its 18th edition globally, the awards based on the outcome of the Randstad Employer Brand Research are presented each year to the most attractive employers in 30 countries across the globe. It is the most representative and inclusive employer brand research in the world.

The outcomes are based on public perception and focus 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 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’.

The 75 largest companies were selected in each participating country, usually with more than 1,000 employees. This list is presented to a representative cross section of respondents based on region, age and gender. The respondents were asked to identify companies they recognise and indicate if they would like to work for them. This was then followed up with an evaluation of attractiveness factors, such as salary, benefits, work atmosphere and job content and more, for each of the companies.
