EMC has been recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Asia 2016 by Great Place To Work at the Institute’s Asia Conference held in Sydney on March 16, ranking #4 on the Best Multinational Workplace list. The study considers the 60 best Asian companies based on five key metrics of workplace culture – credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. This follows EMC’s 6th place position on the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list in 2015, up 12 places from 2014.
EMC was recognised for creating a great workplace built on trust, as rated by employees in seven countries across Asia. The company received high marks from employees for its steadfast commitment to living by its 10 core values and supporting employees throughout their career with EMC: including a talent acquisition strategy that ensure employees fit well into the EMC culture and are equipped for success right from the start. It also rated highly for its flexible work practices; providing friendly work environments with facilities that support employees’ mental and physical well-being; and its collaborative, cohesive energy towards achieving and exceeding results.
EMC runs a number of programs designed to drive the continuous improvement of its corporate culture including employee volunteerism, learning and development, and an accelerated programme of career development for women. In 2014, EMC launched ‘YouDefine EMC’, a worldwide initiative aimed at highlighting how each employee contributes to EMC’s success. This has been embraced by teams across Asia maximising positive impact within regional communities and strengthening dialogue and connections between EMC employees around the world.
For EMC in India, talent development and engagement has been a constant journey. Over the past couple of years, this has seen an increase with continuous focus from the leadership team and active participation by employee groups. The teams have utilised the feedback from the survey to identify areas for improvement. This led to sub teams focusing on Corporate Social responsibility, employee engagement, learning and development, reward and recognition, awareness on benefits and leadership communication. Each of these areas were led and managed by employees and resulted in a highly engaged and happy workforce.
