Fashion retailer H&M Hong Kong has received Asia’s Best Employer Brand Award at a ceremony hosted by the Employer Branding Institute, World HRD Congress and Stars of the Industry Group.
Presented at the Pan Pacific Singapore, the award recognises organisations in Asia for excellence in building their brand as an employer of choice.
The jury for the seventh edition of the award – leaders, researchers and academicians – judged companies for their development initiatives, employee hiring, training and retention practices, and HR innovation.
“I am thankful that H&M’s effort to provide a fun, creative and dynamic workplace is being recognised,” says H&M greater China manager Magnus Olsson. “People are our success, and we are committed to being a good employer.”
He says H&M’s corporate culture is based on a range of values: believing in people, being one team, constantly improving, being straightforward and open-minded, encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit, keeping it simple and being cost-conscious.
