Recruitment firm Randstad recently announced the launch of the inaugural Randstad Award 2016 in Malaysia and released the list of Top 75 companies in Malaysia. These awards will be presented to the winning companies on April 28, 2016.

The Randstad Award is presented to the most attractive employer in more than 20 countries across the globe. The 2016 edition of the award will cover 25 countries. Consisting of over 200,000+ respondents and covering 75 percent of the global economy, the winner is based on the outcome of the world’s largest survey into employer branding. It truly is the only award representing ‘The People’s Choice’.

The outcome of the Randstad Award is based on public perception and focuses 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 only to large multinationals with higher brand name recognition over the small local players.

In Malaysia, 4,504 potential employees and job-seekers between the ages of 18-65 were surveyed. These respondents were asked to identify companies they recognize and indicate if they would like to work for them. This is then followed up with an evaluation of attractiveness factors, such as salary, benefits, work atmosphere and job content, for each of the companies.

With the Randstad Award being held for the first time in Malaysia, the findings will provide an unprecedented look into, who among the list of employers, do employees in Malaysia regard as the most attractive employer.

Ryan Carroll, Country Director, Randstad Malaysia said, “The Randstad Award is a key element of our global research. This award is coming to Malaysia for the first time and is a significant step for us to showcase the growing importance of the Malaysian market for Randstad. Employer branding has been an increasing focus for employers in Malaysia and this research unveils public sentiment around the country’s top 75 companies.”

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 and gender.
