CLP Power Hong Kong Limited was named as the most attractive employer in Hong Kong at the Randstad Award 2016. The annual award, which celebrated its fourth year in Hong Kong and its 16th edition globally, was held at the Asia Society.
The Randstad Award is based on the outcome of the world’s largest survey into employer branding and is the only award which truly represents ‘the people’s choice’. This extensive research surveys over 200,000+ respondents across different age groups, genders and educational levels, and covers 75% of the global economy.
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, education and gender. In Hong Kong, over 5,400 employees and job-seekers between the ages of 18-65 were surveyed.

Taking the win for the first time, CLP Power Hong Kong Limited has consistently ranked third and fourth place over the past three editions of the Randstad Award. A total of 58% of all respondents who knew CLP Power stated that they would like to work for them.
The attractiveness factors are facets of an employer brand which are key when talent looks for new companies or when deciding to stay. CLP Power Hong Kong is best known for offering long-term job security, career progression, good work-life balance and financial health.
Quince Chong, CLP Power Chief Corporate Development Officer noted, “On behalf of CLP, I would like to thank Randstad for presenting this prestigious award for us. We are very honoured to be recognised as the Most Attractive Employer by the Hong Kong community for which we have been serving for 115 years.”
“This award is a strong recognition to our entire workforce who have been working tirelessly to serve our 2.5 million customers with the safest, most reliable and economical electricity. Our goal is to make Hong Kong a greener and smarter city.”
“We strive to create a positive working environment for our employees so that they can perform at their best every day. We take talent development seriously by offering our staff good development opportunities. We will continue to make CLP Power a great place to work and an organisation that our employees can take pride in,” added Chong.
Work-life balance has been gaining importance for employees in Hong Kong every year of the Randstad Award, finally having tied in second place with pleasant working atmosphere this year. Salary and employee benefits have taken a strong lead as the most important factor for employees.
