Sabic named Top Employer Asia Pacific for 9th year

RIYADH, January 26, 2022

Sabic, a world leading diversified chemicals company, has been officially recognized as the “Top Employer Asia Pacific” for the ninth consecutive year by the Top Employer Institute, a globally accredited certification body.

Sabic also received the “Top Employer 2022" awards in five of its key Asian markets – China for the twelfth year, and India, Japan, Singapore and South Korea for the past nine years.

This is a testament to its employee-first approach and commitment to future-proofing its workforce against the challenges of tomorrow through a range of innovative solutions, a Sabic statement said.

The Top Employers Institute program certifies organizations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. The survey encompasses 20 HR topics such as People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being and Diversity & Inclusion and more.

“We remain acutely aware of the continued short and potential longer-term disruptions to the workforce amidst these challenging times and the necessity to adapt quickly to new ways of working across the region. We have evolved our HR strategy to ensure the uninterrupted development of our people through a range of new learning and development platforms. To be recognized as the certified Top Employer for the ninth-year running is a significant achievement as we continue on our transformation journey,” said Mohammed Al-Nafea, General Manager, HR MEAF & Asia Regions.

David Plink, CEO of the Top Employers Institute said, "Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organizations across the world, Sabic has continued to show that it prioritizes maintaining excellent people practices in the workplace. They continue to meet the challenges of the changing world of work while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of their workforce. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the organizations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”

“At Sabic, we strive to build a supportive and nurturing work environment that enables our dynamic and talented team to succeed. Our people are the resource keeping Sabic on track to becoming the preferred world leader in chemicals. Only by providing meaningful development opportunities for employees and equipping them with the right tools to grow, can our business continue to thrive and deliver on its growth trajectory,” Al-Nafea continued.

To encourage the growth mindset of its employees, Sabic also launched an enhanced version of Project Endeavour in 2021, a platform which was first launched in 2020 that provides extensive on-the-job development opportunities for participating employees who express interest to work on a spectrum of business projects.

The initiative has been well received by employees as it provides rich opportunities for cross-functional collaboration, networking, exposure and new learning. The program also effectively creates a win-win for business leaders seeking fresh insights and talent spotting from a larger pool of employees across Asia Pacific.  – TradeArabia News Service
