 Starbucks Coffee Malaysia has been named as Malaysia’s best employer at the Aon Hewitt Best Employers-­‐ Malaysia 2015 Awards, receiving the title -­‐ Best of the Best. Starbucks Coffee Malaysia has emerged as Malaysia’s best employer at the Aon Hewitt Best Employers-­‐ Malaysia 2015 Awards, taking home the ‘Best of the Best’ title. This prestigious award was received by Mr. Sydney Quays, Managing Director of Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei from Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri Abdul Wahid Omar, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department during the Awards Presentation and Learning Conference in St Giles The Gardens, Grand Hotel & Residences on Thursday, 19 March 2015. “The Aon Hewitt Best Employers award is one of the most significant recognitions that a company could get in validation to its human resources practices and talent management initiatives. Getting this award means a lot to all of us in the company. It brings pride at all levels of the organization, not only to our partners (employees) but their families as well.” said Mr. Sydney Quays, Managing Director of Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei. Aon Hewitt Best Employers Award is deemed to be one of the most prestigious award in recognizing companies with high employee engagement, compelling employer brand, effective leadership and high performance culture. Starbucks Employee Value Proposition is aimed at retaining, engaging and motivating partners in exchange for their productivity and performance. Known as the “Starbucks Experience”, this includes extrinsic (rewards and benefits, opportunities for career development) and intrinsic elements (management style, work environment and culture). June Beh , Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei Partner Resources & Compliance Director says, “Retention starts from hiring the right talent; hence, we trained our hiring managers to recruit candidates that have the desired attitude. “We also highly invest in the training of every employee including part-­‐
timers, empowering them with the necessary skills and knowledge.” Highly regarded as a truly responsible company, Starbucks believes in leaving a positive impact on the communities in wherever we do business and on the planet we live on. As such, Starbucks is dedicated to contributing back to the community and environment. Aon Hewitt’s 12 years of Best Employers research in Asia Pacific, incorporating insights from over 3,800 registered organizations, supports the striking evidence that a committed and productive workforce delivers stronger business results. The Aon Hewitt Best Employers Study is conducted in twelve countries in Asia Pacific in 2015: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand, as well as in Australia and New Zealand. A comprehensive study is conducted over a 9-­‐month period culminating in a list of best employers for each market and Aon Hewitt is in partnership with TalentCorp Malaysia in announcing the list of Malaysian winners. “Best Employers clearly achieve better business results compared to market. We found that Best Employers in Malaysia achieve significant higher growth in their income profits when compared to market average. This makes becoming a Best Employer a business agenda for Malaysian companies and not just a human resources agenda,” said Mr. Prashant Chadha, Managing Director of Aon Hewitt Malaysia. It is truly a great honor for Starbucks Malaysia to be recognized as a Best Employer and we carry this with pride. As there is a saying at Starbucks “We're known for our coffee, but our people make us famous.” added Mr.Quays. # # # What Starbucks Partners Have To Say … on partner development As a young father, I tend to work harder to benchmark my capacity – and with a reliable and trusted brand like Starbucks, it gives me a sense of relief that my son’s future is secured. We never stop learning. I started off my career in operations. Starbucks then gave me the opportunity to join the Construction and Facilities team. I believe there are many more new opportunities with Starbucks. – Mohindran, 12 years partner, project manager, Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei This April marks my 15 years at Starbucks and despite being 54, I am proud to be a Starbucks partner and will continue to provide a third place and great coffee for my customers! Aside from being a store manager, I am also a Manager Coach Mentor to my partners. I strive to help them develop the necessary skills and knowledge to further advance in their career. There are always opportunity for career growth and development in Starbucks and I am happy to share my experience and train partners. – Margaret Loh, 15 years partner, Starbucks store manager … on coffee and culture My journey started in July 2004 as a full-­‐time barista. I worked my way up till I became a store manager in mid-­‐June 2008. Throughout my years till my tenth year, Starbucks has grown, not only in store volume, but also in internal career opportunities. Starbucks’s mission has been personally embedded in every partner to be a better person. It also fuels our passion towards coffee, and helps us appreciate coffee farmers and the environment. – Ayesha Dahlan, 10 years partner, Starbucks store manager Here at Starbucks, we are all about sharing and creating moments of connection over coffee. I am a certified coffee master and have conducted many coffee tasting sessions and seminars throughout my journey at Starbucks. I am always excited to share my passion and knowledge towards coffee with my customers and partners. The experience is very rewarding for me especially when they appreciate and bond over coffee. – Adi Fisfaisal, 9 years partner, Starbucks learning specialist … on humanity and love When I first participated in GMoS (Global Month of Service) in 2013, I was amazed by the number of participants we gathered to serve our community. The experience definitely inspired me to be a more responsible neighbour and active contributor to the community. I was given the opportunity last year to lead an entire district to create a lasting connection with the community. The initiative allowed me to be involved in community programmes and in return, to share our amazing stories with customers. With love, we serve. – Desmond Soon, 2 years partner, Starbucks store manager I was a full-­‐time barista when I first started working at Starbucks six years ago. As I needed to further my studies, I had to change my position to a part-­‐time barista. I was involved in many CSR projects throughout the years and have been given the opportunity to meet various people and partners. I enjoy bonding with the local community and making a difference to our environment. I realised how serious Starbucks is in preserving their community, and it greatly inspired me and other Starbucks partners. – Low Kah Yan, 6 years partner, Starbucks barista
