Alstom recognised as a Top Employer 2021 in China

Win testament to prioritising employee journeys at the workplace

26 January 2021 – Alstom has been recognised as a Top Employer 2021 in China. Being certified as a Top Employer in the mobility sector cements Alstom’s dedication to better employee journeys within the world of work as well, and exhibits this through excellent HR policies and people practices.

The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of their HR Best Practices Survey. This survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics such as People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being and Diversity & Inclusion and more.

“At Alstom, we believe that we are only as good as the passion and ambition of our people driving the company. The coveted Top Employer 2021 honour – a first for China – puts Alstom in the company of not just the Asia Pacific region but also the world’s best workplaces. It underscores our strong belief in building the right environment for our employees to continue exceling in their respective domains, while reflecting the company’s approach toward these talents and the opportunities we offer them,” said Olivier Loison, Managing Director for Alstom in China & East Asia.

The concept of a quality work environment has long taken root at Alstom in China since its inception. Besides providing a competitive compensation package and a safe and inclusive work environment, Alstom is also dedicated to building a healthy and engaged workforce in China.

Alstom has increased its efforts to hire more women across the organisation and on the shopfloor and as of today, women employees constitute close to 30% of its workforce in China. The team’s creativity in attracting and retaining talents over the years even garnered nods at the Asia Recruitment Awards 2018 as one of the best staff referral programmes. Alstom is also no stranger to promoting corporate volunteerism and participates actively in community outreach projects such as donating masks to frontline rail workers during the COVID-19 battle.

The Top Employers certification is fully in line with the Alstom In Motion strategy. Through collaboration with Top Employers Institute, Alstom will be able to benchmark its practices and internal processes to those of other companies from a variety of industries and determine its key strengths and lines of improvement. It will also serve to attract new talents, promoting high level of employee experience and giving everyone the means to grow in their career.

“Despite the challenging year we have experienced, which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe, Alstom has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate all the organisations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute programme,” said Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink.
