HONG KONG, March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Otis Hong Kong set a new employee milestone when it received three employee-focused awards – Employer of Choice, Appreciation Culture and Employee Engagement – at the prestigious Employer of Choice Award 2020 ceremony. Otis Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: OTIS) is the world’s leading elevator and escalator manufacturing, installation and service company.
The Employer of Choice Award 2020, organized by JobMarket, is the seventh installment of the award program. It honors organizations, business leaders, and HR professionals who were outstanding in talent management in the workplace. JobMarket awards companies who had excellent achievements backed by quantifiable results.
"We are honored to receive these awards from JobMarket," said Joseph Armas, Managing Director of Otis Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. "The awards provide important recognition of Otis’ ongoing efforts to create an inclusive culture that encourages and celebrates the diversity required to innovate, connect and thrive in a taller, faster, smarter world."
Otis sees its over 69,000 employees as its greatest asset and a key business differentiator. To help employees reach their highest potential, Otis encourages its employees to pursue personal and career development goals, financially supports academic aspirations through its Employee Scholar Program, and closely monitors employee well-being via its "Your Wellness, Our Priorities" program.
"The awards show that our ‘people-oriented’ approach is working well," said Marie Chow, Director, Human Resources, Otis Hong Kong Macau and Taiwan. "Our industry leadership is due to our employees going beyond meeting our customers’ needs. Hence, we have spared no effort to support our employees’ development in every way and keep a close eye on their well-being."
The 2020 awards had a special significance for Otis. As regular employee communications became even more important during the pandemic, especially for field professionals, the company rolled out new initiatives built on its ongoing digital transformation efforts. For example, company-issued smartphones with digital support tools kept field professionals connected and able to carry out onsite jobs effectively. The program "Your Wellness, Our Priorities" took care of employees’ well-being from physical to mental health. Otis also worked with experts to host a stress management seminar and other initiatives to support employees and their families.
