Through the Aon Best Employers programme, HR and business leaders can create real impact by focusing on talent outcomes throughout the employee life cycle."

Mr. Panuwat Benrohman, Partner, APACMEA Talent, Rewards & Performance, Aon Hewitt, added: "A significant part of driving employee engagement is delivering an exceptional employee experience all around. With users spending an average of 2.5 hours on their mobile devices daily, employees expect a consumer-grade experience from their interactions with their employers. Digital transformation in HR is no longer a luxury; it's a necessity -- and Best Employers in Thailand are well-positioned to do that."

Ass. Prof. Siriyupa Roongrerngsuke, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Organization Behaviour, Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University, said: "Over Sasin's 15-year partnership with Aon Hewitt, there has been a quiet revolution in the market -- with an increasing number of Thai organisations participating and being recognised as Aon Best Employers.
