Fairness for Employees

Any employee accused of wrongdoing or corruption will have the right to defend themselves and present their case. The inquiry results will be documented and reported to the management to ensure a fair process of considering appropriate disciplinary measures and to prevent unjust dismissals.

Employee Satisfaction

The company conducts an annual employee satisfaction survey, covering various topics such as organizational goals, sense of belonging, career opportunities, remuneration, welfare, and a safe working environment. The survey results are carefully analyzed to identify areas for improvement and enhance employee well-being in a timely manner. This approach aims to foster a happy work environment, increase productivity, and reduce turnover or relocation rates within the company. The survey is conducted at least once a year, typically at the end of each year.

In 2022, there were 316 voluntary and anonymous respondents out of a total of 481 employees, representing a participation rate of 66%. The 2022 Employee Satisfaction Survey revealed an overall average score of 72%, which is an improvement from the 2021 score of 64%. Across all topics, the satisfaction level was rated at level 4 (very satisfied) out of 5, with the highest average score observed in the areas of Commitment to Development and Growing with the Company. This positive trend can be attributed to the improved situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak in 2022, which allowed for the organization of more activities and training sessions (activities that required gatherings were omitted in the previous year). Consequently, employees had more opportunities to build relationships and exchange ideas with executives. The survey results indicated that most employees share the company’s vision and values and take pride in driving its growth. Employees expressed satisfaction with the company’s efforts in employee care. The company continues to value employee feedback and uses it to continuously enhance human resources management.

The following details the participation in the survey, classified according to the organizational structure:

When comparing this turnover rate with industry standards, it was discovered that the company’s resignation rate was lower than that of the industry. Additionally, all employees who voluntarily resign are interviewed to gather insights into the reasons behind their decision. These interviews serve as valuable feedback for the company’s ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of employees’ lives and promote further development.
