Named One of Eight “Outstanding Employers” in Asia by Hewitt Associates
Spansion LLC, the Flash memory venture of AMD (NYSE:AMD) and Fujitsu Limited (TSE:6702), today announced that Spansion Thailand has received two awards as the result of a “Best Employers in 2005” study conducted by global human resources outsourcing and consulting firm, Hewitt Associates. The company was named one of eight “Outstanding Employers” in Asia out of a total of 244 organizations across China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. In addition, Spansion Thailand, a wholly owned subsidiary of Spansion LLC, was awarded “Best Employer in Thailand,” coming in number one in the manufacturing sector and number two overall. More than 60 companies participated in the “Best Employers in Thailand” study. This is the third year of the Hewitt pan-Asian Best Employers study, and the second time that either Spansion, or its parent company AMD, has received the award.
“This award is a testament to the success of our people-oriented management style and a corporate culture that drives our employees to strive for excellence in all that they do,” said Jesada Faugchun, human resources director in Thailand. “We believe that our employees are some of our most important and valued assets, and see them as critical to our success. That’s why we make every effort to provide a dynamic working environment with opportunities for development and advancement.”
According to the “Best Employers in Asia 2005” study, best employers demonstrate three significant characteristics. First, the best employers have highly engaged and motivated employees. Second, they consistently inspire great performance from their people, and third they implement processes that allow employees to be as productive as possible.
