Hong Kong, 4 Dec 2020 – It’s no easy feat to cultivate a high-trust, high-performance organisation. According to Great Place to Work®, it takes the commitment of dedicated and motivated employees and leaders to achieve such a lofty goal. We’re proud to announce that Great Place to Work® has named PageGroup Greater China as one of the ‘Best Workplaces in Greater China™’.
This year 38 companies made it to the list. Great Place to Work® applied the survey to more than 108 companies with more than 150,000 employees in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This survey assesses employees' perceptions of leadership, organizational culture and trust, and is decisive for being selected for the “Best Workplaces in Greater China™”.
Regional Managing Director of PageGroup Greater China, Andy Bentote, says, “We are proud and humbled that PageGroup Greater China has been named one of the ‘Best Workplaces in Greater China 2020’ by Great Place to Work. We believe it’s the human element which sets us apart. We commit to truly developing people’s skills through coaching, mentoring and feedback and give them the tools they need to do their job well. We make sure diversity and inclusion is not just an item on our to-do-list, in fact it’s an inherent part of our culture and embedded into our employee lifecycle. Through this we ensure we minimise unconscious bias and our people can really be their true selves at work.
There has been much emphasis on agility while managing challenges brought about by COVID-19 and hence we are particularly pleased to receive this accolade during such a difficult year. The senior leaders at PageGroup always lead by example to embrace the change in our new shared reality. We have adopted virtual interactions as part of the new normal and reshaped our vision to truly focus on Customers, People and the Future,” continues Andy Bentote.
