Matahari Department Store wins retail award
Matahari Department Store has won the retail category of Warta Ekonomi magazine’s Most Admired Company Award for Indonesia.
It received the award in a ceremony at the Pullman Jakarta Indonesia hotel. The awards are given to corporations most admired by employees across Indonesia.
“Employees are one of the most crucial factors in running a company,” says Matahari corporate secretary/legal director Miranti Hadisusilo. “Matahari is committed to maintaining the relationship between the company and its employees by creating a motivating and rewarding work environment.”
She says the company ensures equal opportunities for recruitment and career development.
Warta Ekonomi’s intelligence unit did research in March and April to determine the winners. Firstly, it listed the best-performing companies according to their financial statements. Next it surveyed public- and private-sector employees.
With such considerations as corporate reputation and global competitiveness, the survey participants were asked to name their “dream companies” for their career.
The survey involved 5000 respondents in the greater Jakarta area, Bandung (West Java), Makassar (South Sulawesi), Medan (North Sumatra) and Surabaya (East Java), as well as 1000 from other parts of Indonesia.
