Demonstrates Melco's reputation as a company people want to work for
MACAU, April 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited is excited to announce that the company won the first place Gold Award for Best Mass Recruitment at the Human Resources Asia Recruitment Awards 2019. To be able to attract and select the best applicants in huge numbers requires a company to have the reputation that it is somewhere people want to work for and where colleagues are at the center of the company's corporate strategy. Anchored by the philosophy to "hire for attitude, potential, and image, and train on skills", Melco's integrated resorts have been successful in hiring thousands of colleagues and onboarding them to ensure that premium service is delivered to its customers. In a recent global survey conducted by Willis Towers Watson, 80 percent of Melco's employees reported that they are proud of where they work.
Established in 2015, the Asia Recruitment Awards is the only regional recruitment award. The Best Mass Recruitment category recognizes successful strategies and performance across companies. Candidates are evaluated for their recruitment process, including extensive search, initial screening, recruitment interviews and employee turnover rates. Candidates for the award also had to demonstrate how their employee recruitment strategies enable an effective employee engagement track record for the company.
Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, "This award is a testament to our efforts and dedication to ensure an employer brand which attracts the type of individuals who are committed to delivering excellence and the best and most memorable experiences to our guests, from top to bottom.
