Singapore, January 27, 2022 – Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), the leading provider of global workforce solutions, was recognised as a winner in the China edition of the HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards, an awards recognition program in Asia organised by Business Media International, publishers of the bimonthly magazine HR Asia. Organisations must be nominated by their employees to be eligible and have workforce practices that demonstrate outstanding employee engagement and excellent workplace cultures. AGS received this recognition due to its localised people-first strategy, which is built on employee needs and feedback.
“Thank you to HR Asia for honouring AGS as a best company to work for in China,” said AGS Vice President, APAC, Sarah Wong. “I am proud to say that we would not have been recognised without our people’s unwavering dedication to their work and their resilience during challenging times. Despite the ongoing and widespread impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, our team emerged stronger and more bonded than before. Together, we created a successful roadmap for our people’s wellbeing and safety whilst maintaining business-as-usual. And it’s the combination of these efforts that helped AGS attract and retain great talent, and drive positive outcomes for our China team”.
AGS’ multipronged people-first approach begins with its employee resource groups (ERGs), employee-led programs designed to foster wellness and celebrate differences among a diverse, inclusive workforce. New hires undergo training on company core values and are introduced to ERGs during their onboarding process. AGS’ ERGs in China are:
Further demonstrating AGS’ people-first strategy, the company ensures employees in APAC have access to wellbeing resources. For example, AGS organised webinars on topics such as, “Loss and Grief Management”, “Getting Quality Sleep”, “Yoga and Meditation” and “Stress Management”. The company also conducted workshops with professionally trained psychologists and held internal chat roulettes to forge connections between employees who may not otherwise get to know one another through daily work activities. In the many waves of COVID-19 lockdowns, AGS sent care packages to team members working remotely, and adapted in-person appreciation dinners and incentive trips to virtual recognition ceremonies. AGS further invested in an online appreciation platform that allows people to reward and recognise coworkers with written thanks and a points system that can be redeemed for gifts.
AGS employees have free, 24/7 access to an Employer Assistance Program (EAP). It offers unlimited access to professional counsellors and work-life specialists who listen and offer advice, confidentially, on topics such as a stressful lifestyle, work pressures, family problems, legal queries, and grief and loss management.
Finally, on top of China’s social insurance programs, AGS provides a housing fund, annual health screenings and complimentary health insurance for its employees and their first child. Employees also enjoy an enhanced benefits package that includes birthday and festive gift cards, and access to many more programs on a stored-value card, such as gym passes, that allow them to select their preferred benefits.
