FedEx Express has been named a Best Employer by Aon in Singapore. This year, FedEx is also awarded the Best Employer in Asia Pacific after it was named the Best Employer in three out of seven Asia Pacific markets that have announced the results – Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.
“We are extremely honoured to be recognised as an employer of choice in Singapore by Aon. Ensuring that our employees are engaged and feel valued is one of our core focus areas, and this recognition further reinforces our commitment to continue moving in the right direction,” said Audrey Cheong, managing director, FedEx Express Singapore. “Credit goes to our employees who manifest their high level of engagement by consistently fulfilling our Purple Promise to deliver an outstanding experience to customers.”
The Best Employers accreditation program evaluates organisations based on four critical areas: employee engagement, effective leadership, compelling employer brand and high performance culture.
“The rapidly evolving business environment needs organisations to accelerate organic growth, digitise their business, reduce risk exposure and embrace change,” said Jeremy Andrulis, CEO of Aon Hewitt, Southeast Asia. “These themes demonstrate the importance of having a highly engaged, agile and productive workforce. Best Employer organisations like FedEx are able to identify the capabilities they need from their employees and create an environment conducive to their employees’ growth and productivity not just now, but in the years to come. As a result, they outperform the market in employee engagement while continuing to retain the exceptional talent they already have.”
Prior to this year, FedEx Singapore was also in Aon’s Best Employers list in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2008, 2011. In 2016, the company received a Special Recognition for Commitment to Engagement by the Aon Best Employers – Singapore program.
