Aon Hewitt, a global talent, retirement and health-solutions business of Aon Plc, in conjunction with its academic partner, the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University, has launched the Best Employers 2015 Programme

“You can’t manage your human resources if you don’t measure your employees’ opinions and your HR practices. The Best Employers Thailand 2015 programme combines Sasin’s strength on the theoretical side with Aon Hewitt’s practical expertise in human-resources management and measurement. Participating in the survey will put your organisation on the path to HR success and high performance,” says Dr Siriyupa Rooongrerngsuke, head of the HR programme at Sasin.
“Sasin has enjoyed our partnership with Aon Hewitt for the past 11 years and we look forward to many more years working together.”
Aon Hewitt’s 12 years of Best Employers research in Asia-Pacific, incorporating insights from over 4,300 registered organisations, provides striking evidence that a committed and productive workforce delivers stronger business results. Aon Hewitt’s Best Employers Programme has become the most comprehensive study of its kind in Asia-Pacific. It is conducted in 12 markets: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. The research involves a rigorous process conducted over a nine-month period, which culminates in a solid, credible list of best employers. In 2013, nine organisations that received the eleven Best Employers Awards in Thailand comprised Mc Thai, Advanced Info Service, Advanced Contact Centre, DJL Express International (Thailand), MARS Thailand, Samitivej, Sizzler, TISCO Bank and The Pizza Company, 
While the Best Employers programme recognises organisations that display standards of excellence, the journey to get there is one that Aon Hewitt recommends for every organisation to embark upon. “For organisations that don’t make it to the Best Employers list, but are aspiring to become Best Employers, we want to reinforce that becoming a Best Employer doesn’t happen overnight,” says Gabriela Domicelj, Asia Pacific engagement practice leader and Best Employers Study lead at Aon Hewitt. “It is possible for everyone to become a Best Employer, if you’ve articulated the destination you want to head to, and have planned your journey wisely.”
Participation in Aon Hewitt’s Best Employers programme brings a wide range of benefits for organisations, such as finding out how employees perceive and rate their employer, the reasons why they are attracted to certain employer brands, and the type of organisational culture they value sufficiently to “stay and strive”. The study also provides a benchmark against competitors in the market. Participating organisations gain access to Aon Hewitt’s latest market research insights, along with the best and most innovative “people-practices” of Best Employers, through exclusive access to a participants’ online network and a digital library of best-practice talent-management case studies.
