EY chosen as Hong Kong’s most attractive employer
Hong Kong, 22 April 2014 - EY announced today that it has been chosen by business undergraduates in Hong Kong as the most attractive employer, according to global employer branding consultancy Universum’s Hong Kong Top 100 IDEAL Employers 2014.
“I am pleased and honoured that local young talent has such a high regard for EY as a potential employer. This speaks volumes about the attractiveness of the professional services sector and particularly about EY as a global organization focused on investing in the learning and development of our people,” says Agnes Chan, Hong Kong & Macau Managing Partner of EY.
EY regularly connects with university students in Hong Kong. Its signature campus program EYAcademy is a structured three year program designed to provide local university undergraduates the ultimate EY experience through mentoring, training, teaming, networking and internship in our Hong Kong and Mainland offices.
"I believe EY's purpose - building a better working world - resonates with students in Hong Kong. At EY, we are committed to developing future leaders who are not only capable of achieving business success but also care for our community and environment. Through our campus activities, we get a clear message from Hong Kong's future talent that they want to make a real difference in their community and change the world for the better,” adds Agnes Chan.
Mentoring, training, teaming and networking continue after the students join EY. EY provides professional and on-the-job training for its employees. As a highly globally integrated organization, employees in Hong Kong enjoy plenty of opportunities to work with teams across borders and cultures. EY promotes a culture of inclusiveness and diversity, allowing its people to express their ideas freely and realize their potential to the fullest.
“At EY, we always say “whenever you join, however long you stay, the exceptional EY experience lasts a lifetime”. As the students’ preferred employer, we will continue to provide the enabling environment for their professional and personal development and help them realize their potential," concludes Agnes Chan.
Universum asked the 5,751 university students who participated in the online survey about their career expectations and their perception of future employers. The ideal employers rankings were determined based on the level of employer attractiveness in the recruitment market. The survey took place between October 2013 and February 2014.
