Audrey Widjaja, Partner and Practice Leader, Talent, Rewards & Performance, Aon Greater China said: "As Chinese companies grapple with a multi-generational workforce and increasing competition for talent from start-ups, they must transform their people practices. Best Employers invest in continuous dialogue by combining data, analytics and digital technology to create feedback loops that drive self-sustaining improvement enabling staff to maximise their potential."

 

Peter Zhang, Chief Executive Officer, Aon Consulting, Greater China, said: "A 5% increase in employee engagement is linked to a 3% increase in revenue growth in the subsequent year, according to Aon's research. When organisations have high engagement levels, employees say positive things about working there, strive harder in their jobs, and stay for the long term driving business performance. As Chinese companies aim to capture global markets, they must have agile HR practices that enable them to work different to enhance both customer and employee experience."
