KUALA LUMPUR, 4 December 2012 – PwC Malaysia was named Malaysia’s Top Graduate Employer of the Year 2012 at the Malaysia’s 100 Leading Graduate Employers Awards held recently. PwC also took home the award for Top Graduate Employer in Accounting and Professional Services, the firm’s 4th win in the history of the awards since it started in 2008.
The awards celebrate and recognise both the strength of employer brands on campus and excellence in graduate recruitment.
Patrick Ng, PwC Malaysia Partner and Assurance Human Capital Leader said: “We’re proud to win this award for the third time, and thank all those who voted for us. Our firm is built around developing meaningful relationships that deliver value. And we believe that’s how we can deliver a great PwC Experience to all our people - from before they join us at their interview, and right through each step in their career.”
“We know that today’s graduates are different from those of generations before. So, we constantly look at ways to meet their needs, and make the most of their energy and passion. For example, we try to understand what Generation Y graduates seek from their employers through our Millennials at Work http://www.pwc.com/my/en/publications/millennials-at-work-2012.jhtml survey. The findings help validate or improve how we engage our people and future employees.”
"Graduate recruitment is becoming increasingly competitive. This recognition strengthens our brand on campus and attracts good graduates to join us. Having a good talent pool is important in making sure we deliver the best we can for our clients," he added.
Over 12,000 students and fresh graduates took part in this year’s survey, which determined the ranking of Malaysia’s 100 leading graduate employers for this year.
Conducted by GTI Media and powered by Trendence, Europe’s leading research institute, the annual online survey was held over a period of six months from March to September 2012.
