– Far East Hospitality, Singapore’s leading operator of hotels and serviced residences, is honoured to be named the Aon Best Employer – Singapore 2016.
The award by Aon Hewitt, a global human resource consulting and outsourcing company, is one of the world’s most coveted award covering best workplace practices. It serves to help organisations identify areas of improvement in workplace culture and recognise those who have effectively implemented best practices in employee engagement.
“We are humbled to be conferred the Best Employer Singapore 2016. We could not have done it without the support and dedication of our Far East family,” said Mr Arthur Kiong, CEO of Far East Hospitality. “In the process of being considered in this award, we had the opportunity to look at our employee engagement practices and affirm how they align with our core values. This achievement will motivate us to continue working towards employee engagement excellence.”
As the hospitality management arm of the listed Far East Orchard Limited, Far East Hospitality also manages properties in Malaysia: Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur and Sri Tiara Residences. Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur is the latest addition to the management’s portfolio and the first Oasia property outside of Singapore since the announcement of the Oasia brand expansion earlier in 2015.
“Workforce expectations are beginning to shift. Employees no longer seek only monetary remuneration. Instead, they look out for growth opportunities, recognition and careers with a purpose. At Far East Hospitality, we recognise this trend. As such, we restructure and adapt our HR strategies to meet these changing workforce demands,” said Mr Kiong.
“We strongly believe in developing our people both professionally and personally, and we hope to instil the same principle with our global teams. Our talent and retention efforts remain competitive as we continuously meet our people’s aspirations.”
