First company in Asia to be recognised for 2019 under Aon’s global evaluation criteria

Singapore, 1 April 2019 – Far East Organization has been named Aon Best Employer Singapore 2019, the first organisation in Asia to be awarded the accolade this year under the professional services firm’s global assessment criteria (https://humancapital.aon.com/reports/global-best-employers/best-employers/countries).

The Aon Global Best Employers Programme assesses and recognises leading organisations worldwide that provide a distinct and compelling work experience across four critical indices: having a high level of employee engagement, a profoundly agile organisation, engaging leadership and maniacal talent focus that delivers strong and sustainable business results.  These indices make up Aon’s employee engagement model, which is designed and backed by over 50 years of employee experience research.

Far East Organization achieved an Engagement level of 83 percent in an organisation-wide employee survey conducted independently by Aon in November 2018. This is above the benchmark scores for Aon Best Employers Singapore (78 percent), Aon Best Employers APAC (81 percent) and Aon Best Employers in the Real Estate Management & Development sector in Singapore (65 percent). A record 99.76 percent of the total eligible employee population participated in the survey. 

In addition to achieving high levels of engagement, Far East Organization also achieved superior levels in the other three indices, namely: Agility (79 percent), Engaging Leadership (81 percent) and Talent Focus (79 percent).

Commenting on Far East Organization’s latest recognition, Na Boon Chong, Managing Director and Partner, Talent, Rewards and Performance, Aon Singapore, said, “Being recognised as an Aon Best Employer Singapore 2019 is testament to Far East Organization’s commitment towards building a differentiated and compelling work experience for its employees. In this competitive and dynamic business landscape, the organisation has demonstrated a clear strength in building an agile future ready organisation, attracting and retaining the right talent and by instilling a strong culture of engagement ownership across individual, managerial and senior leadership levels.”

Far East Organization’s Executive Director and Group Head of HR & IT, Jodie Choo (朱德婉) dedicated this milestone achievement to every member of the Organization who has come alongside to build our community of love and workplace of grace. She says, “The recognition as an Aon Best Employer shows that as a community, we have responded well and are on the right course in the stewardship of the many lives and families entrusted in our care. Our people are at the heart of the delivery of organisational excellence. As a Christian enterprise, the difference that we make to the marketplace must be our work that is marked by this excellence. Our commitment as The Best Employer is for all our people to find resonance in our values, experience the wealth of diverse opportunities offered by our enterprise, and build their future with us.”
