Dr Adisak Chandprapalert, Managing Director, Aon Hewitt Thailand, said: "CEOs consistently rank people issues as a top challenge in their ability to create business value. Through the Aon Best Employers programme, HR and business leaders can create real impact by focusing on talent outcomes throughout the employee life cycle."

Panuwat Benrohman, Partner, APACMEA Talent, Rewards & Performance, Aon Hewitt, added: "A significant part of driving employee engagement is delivering an exceptional employee experience all around. With users spending an average of 2.5 hours on their mobile devices daily, employees expect a consumer-grade experience from their interactions with their employers. Digital transformation in HR is no longer a luxury; it's a necessity - and Best Employers in Thailand are well-positioned to do that."

Associate Professor of Organization Behaviour Dr Siriyupa Roongrerngsuke, Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University, said: "Over Sasin's 15-year partnership with Aon Hewitt, there has been a quiet revolution in the market - with an increasing number of Thai organisations participating and being recognised as Aon Best Employers. Once again, this year, all Aon Best Employers in Thailand have truly proven to be leaders in driving employee engagement."
