Oil and gas giant Petronas has been named by Randstad as the most attractive employer in Malaysia for 2019, the second time the company has secured the top spot. Petronas is ranked among the largest corporations on the FORTUNE Global 500 and has a head count of 48,000.

According to Randstad Employer Brand Research, the top three most attractive employers remain unchanged from last year — Petronas, Shell Malaysia and Nestlé (Malaysia). The companies received the highest attractiveness scores in a survey on firms that job seekers in Malaysia want to work for.

Singapore Airlines was named as the most attractive employer in Singapore by Randstad followed by Changi Airport Group and Marina Bay Sands. Jaya Dass, Managing Director at Randstad Singapore and Malaysia said, “As more companies invest in the development and well-being of their employees, people in the workforce are receiving a more integrated and meaningful experience whenever they engage with a company.

“In the long-run, we hope that this strategic approach in strengthening the employer brand will help improve the quality of the engagement between companies and workers and the overall productivity and capabilities of the employees.”
