Better never stops: How Phaidon International went above and beyond for its employees

The company won the Employee Engagement of the Year - Executive Search award at the HKB Management Excellence Awards 2021.

Phaidon International has played an instrumental role in the growth and development of its integrated employee network since its inception in 2004, building on its crucial pillars of learning and development to support the success of its employees.

With its efforts in promoting the right motivational culture and providing the appropriate strategic learning, the company has ushered in a wave of key business-critical successes and amplified the satisfaction of each employee.

“We witnessed the effect that investment in culture and career development had on keeping our employees engaged and switched-on - setting up our regional team to become agile, adaptable, and reach our targeted goals,” said Jamie Thorpe, Executive Director, Head of Phaidon International North Asia.

Since January, it has seen a 45.5% decrease in its employee attrition rate.

Phaidon International’s employees emerged more resilient and fueled for growth against the backdrop of uncertainties. Its diligent and proactive employee engagement initiatives have been recognised, as the company clinched the Employee Engagement of the Year - Executive Search award at the HKB Management Excellence Awards 2021.

Going above and beyond for its employees, the company has crafted a multi-dimensional Learning and Development program that equips and empowers its talent experts with the skills needed to enhance their careers. This year, it has also strategically implemented different programs and training for all members of seniority across the Hong Kong business.

Phaidon International ensures that all employees are equipped with business-nuanced skills and capabilities. It has also implemented mechanisms to recognise, reward, and motivate its workforce, such as the Hong Kong office constructing numerous weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual incentives that were tailor-made to drive team results and successes.

For them, the events of 2021 created a much-needed space for reflection, renewed business optimism, and future growth, which is underpinned by its newest Hong Kong office launch earlier this year.

HKB Management Excellence Awards honours Hong Kong’s most outstanding business leaders. The prestigious awards programme is on the lookout for trailblazing individuals, innovators and teams whose initiatives have brought tangible business gains for the success of their companies.
