Gold in HR Recruitment Awards 2019
Anchored by the philosophy to “hire for attitude, potential, and image, and train on skills”, Melco’s integrated resorts have been successful in hiring thousands of colleagues and onboarding them to ensure that premium service is delivered to its customers. In a recent global survey conducted by Willis Towers Watson, 80 percent of Melco’s employees reported that they are proud of where they work.
The company’s reputation as a place where people want to work and where colleagues are at the center of the company’s corporate strategy has enabled it to attract and select the best applicants in huge numbers.
Established in 2015 by Human Resources magazine, the Asia Recruitment Awards is the only regional recruitment award. The Best Mass Recruitment category recognizes successful strategies and performance across companies. Candidates for the award are evaluated for their recruitment process, including extensive search, initial screening, recruitment interviews and employee turnover rates, and also had to demonstrate how their employee recruitment strategies enable an effective employee engagement track record for the company.
