To ensure the development of SABIC's human capital, we focus on recruiting the right talent and building a strong workforce with diverse backgrounds, opinions and ideas. To retain talent, we work on creating a culture of empowered, engaged teams working in an inspiring environment," said Lee Min Yin, Senior Director, Human Resources, Asia Pacific, SABIC. This is the seventh consecutive year that SABIC has earned the 'Top Employers' certification in China and the fourth consecutive year of receiving the certification in India, Japan, South Korea and Singapore - a sound validation of the company's dedicated efforts towards its employees. The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. Participating companies must meet the required high standard in the stringent process in order to achieve the certification, which includes an independent audit. Areas of assessment includes talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits and culture. Within SABIC, periodic organizational health checks conducted at the global level provide performance assessments of its human resource practices and processes, indicating the areas for improvement to support the company's drive to be the employer of choice. A successful initiative SABIC administers during the past five years, as part of talent development and building a strong pipeline for leadership roles, is a platform for its Generation Y employees to work on cross-functional cross-region projects that are beyond their usual scope of responsibility. Such projects allow early-career employees to have opportunities to engage with peers and leaders globally, hence broadening their understanding of the company, heightening their confidence level and widening their personal network. In turn, SABIC's leaders gain an increased visibility and understanding of young talents who are being cultivated within the organization. As one of the world's largest petrochemicals manufacturer and material solutions provider, SABIC's employees are encouraged to make a difference through their work. Its employee value proposition themed 'People Who Can', is designed to inspire current and potential employees to create a more innovative, more sustainable and more exciting future for customers and for the world.
