Fabrinet receives 2005 Best Employers in Thailand Award
May 04, 2005
Award sponsored by Hewitt Associates, the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration, and the Bangkok Post
Fabrinet announced the company has been chosen one of the "Best Employers in Thailand 2005" by Hewitt Associates, in conjunction with the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration and the Bangkok Post. The bi-annual award, recognizing the Top 10 employers in Thailand, is based on a region-wide employee survey compiled by Hewitt examining the links between business performance and people practices. Fabrinet is a two-time recipient of this Top Ten designation.
The regional survey, covering organizations throughout China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, is the largest of its kind in Asia. The survey ranked companies based on responses gained from employee questionnaires and interviews with chief executives. Companies were assessed on their ability to engage and motivate employees as well as align staff with strategic corporate objectives. The survey found that the top ranking companies are able to create a positive work environment and future career opportunities for staff, establish productive work processes, and build a sense of belonging among employees towards their organizations.
At the awards ceremony in Thailand on April 20, 2005, Mick Bennett, the Asia Pacific managing director for Hewitt, noted, "One strong lesson we learned from (2005's list of) Best Employers is that they create a strong culture of celebration and recognition."
