HONG KONG, May 16, 2019 — HR Asia, the continent’s most authoritative publication for HR professionals, has awarded JMATEK with its highest-calibre accolade for best employee workplace. The “HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia” award is testament to JMATEK’s persistent priority on best workplace practices and stellar employee satisfaction.
JMATEK credits this accomplishment to its three pillars of employee engagement — Learn@Jmatek, Rewards@Jmatek and Fun@Jmatek — that support the full scope of workplace productivity. These are expressed through frequent training opportunities, generous performance bonuses and much anticipated fun days.
Workflow at JMATEK follows the Kaizen approach of collective and continuous improvement. Employees are invited to weekly meetings, are encouraged to share insights and are empowered to appreciate their own value in achieving the collective goal. Managers and employees collaborate to create clearly defined frameworks and bonuses within which they can self-regulate and reach their targets.
“At JMATEK, productivity is part and parcel of a culture of mentorship and transparency,” says CEO Naresh Kumra. “Managers empower their teams to take calculated risks to achieve their goals. We‘ve seen, time and again, that trust is a catalyst for growth.”
HR Asia differentiates its award process through its singular focus on the full scope of the employee experience. An extensive survey, designed by academics and consultants, views employees holistically and covers social, emotional and physical wellbeing, in addition to workplace culture and career advancement.
