Wing ‘Asia’s Best Employer’ at 2020 World HRD Congress

Company recognised with prestigious award for commitment to its staff.

Wing has again showcased excellence as the winner of Asia’s Best Employer Brand Award from the World HRD Congress at its 11th annual ceremony, which was held virtually in October.

“Through the vision of Royal Group Chairman Neak Oknha Kith Meng, Wing is not only a key agent in extending financial accessibility to Cambodian people nationwide, but this award exemplifies Wing’s sustained commitment to its staff.

“We invest in our people by building up their capacity to become dynamic future leaders through development programmes and by giving them opportunities to grow,” said Wing CEO Manu Rajan.

Bringing together nearly 2,000 professionals from more than 133 countries, the World HRD Congress also recognised Royal Group subsidiaries including Cellcard’s ICT division and Ezecom.

The World HRD Congress operates as an independent non-profit organisation with the goal of making “work and working lives better”.

Lao Sheanghai, Wing’s director of Human Resources, said: “Wing creates opportunities where each employee can share their voice, get involved in new initiatives and stay updated on our business direction from senior management through meetings and cultural and community activities.

“We are committed to our goal of preserving Wing as an attractive career destination for job seekers across the Kingdom.”

The Employer Branding Institute and World HRD Congress congratulated Wing on its success in promoting a positive workplace environment.

“The Congress would like to encourage Wing (Cambodia) Limited Specialised Bank to keep up the good work and share their best practices within the industry to create a better workplace and culture.

“This award will enhance the scope and motivate the employees of Wing (Cambodia) Limited Specialised Bank to do more and achieve their organisation’s goals,” the World HRD Congress said.

Wing has consistently aimed to build the best work place and foster a positive work culture for its employees.

Cambodia’s leading mobile banking services provider ‘creates opportunities where each employee can share their voice’.

As the leading mobile banking services provider in Cambodia, Wing’s staff levels have grown as its business has flourished, with the total number of Wing employees reaching 451 by the end of 2019 – a 22 per cent increase on the previous year.

The company has expanded its staff to 589 this year, despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Wing’s commitment to employee retention and development has led to the successful launch of several capacity-building programmes.

In the past year alone, Wing invested nearly 11,000 hours in training for the development of more than 445 Wing professionals, including for new and long-standing staff members.

On top of that, every year Wing creates opportunities for students from various higher education institutions to join an internship programme and gain valuable, hands-on experience.

As a testament to Wing’s exemplary workplace culture, 75 per cent of Wing interns have progressed to become full-time employees.

Wing also contributes to the community by continuously involving its employees in social and charity events, as well as with donations and environmental, financial literacy and gender empowerment programmes.
