Our achievements are driven by our constant pursuit of originality, which inspires the pioneering spirit we’re renowned for.

about randstad employer brand awards

The results of the Randstad Employer Brand Research (REBR) are based on public perception and focus on two main areas:

  • overall brand or company awareness
  • absolute employer attractiveness

The research seeks to understand what job seekers look for in an ideal employer and measures their perception of the commercial employers, creating a level playing field for all of Hong Kong’s commercial companies.

The awards are not open for nomination and the results are based solely on the opinions of the local workforce – making it the only award that truly represents ‘the people’s choice’. A list of the largest commercial companies (based on the number of employees) is presented to a representative cross-section of respondents based on region, age and gender.

The respondents were asked to identify companies whose name they recognise and indicate to what extent they would like to work for them. This was then followed up with an evaluation of employee value proposition drivers, such as salary and employee benefits, work atmosphere, job content and more, for each of the commercial companies surveyed. This would indicate that the results would represent the 'employers of choice'.
