The annual Randstad Employer Brand Research (REBR) is an independent study commissioned by Randstad and conducted by Kantar TNS. This year, more than 3,000 locally-based employees and job seekers were surveyed in Hong Kong SAR in January 2022. The study measures brand awareness and brand attractiveness of commercial companies among various industries, and respondents are required to rate the organisations on 10 employee value proposition drivers such as ‘attractive salary and employee benefits’, ‘work-life balance’ and ‘career progression opportunities’.

The winners of the Randstad Hong Kong 2022 Employer Brand Awards will be announced on 30 May, 2022.

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

  1. overall brand or company awareness
  2. 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 the 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 independent research is the most representative employer brand study in the world, reaching out nearly 163,000 respondents across 31 markets, including 3,027 who are based in Hong Kong SAR in January 2022.
