HR Asia's rigorous assessment process proved Avnet's track record regarding its outstanding employer practices, identifying Avnet as an employer of choice in Asia. In the employee survey, Avnet scored higher than the industry average in worker engagement, providing a healthy workplace culture, and offering employee development opportunities. Avnet and the other winners were selected by a panel of judges sourced from an extensive range of independent industry experts, academics, journalists and government representatives.

Prince Yun, regional president, sales, Avnet Taiwan and South Asia commented, "It is a great honor for Avnet Taiwan to be recognized by HR Asia as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Asia. Avnet has been guiding today's ideas into tomorrow's technology in Taiwan for more than 30 years.

This award is a strong recognition and endorsement of our commitment to employee wellness as well as individual growth and development."

"HR Asia's Best Companies to Work for in Asia award recognizes companies for their workplace and employee engagement practices. Recipients, such as Avnet Taiwan, have and continue to demonstrate their willingness to go the extra mile in ensuring employees are well taken care of and are fully engaged. The award is benchmarked against global best practices and the results are weighed against an extensive country-wide survey of employees. Winning this award is a validation of Avnet Asia's efforts in becoming one of the best companies to work for in the region," says William Ng, group publisher and editor-in-chief of HR Asia.

Avnet recognizes the significance of having a robust talent management strategy and competency-based approach to attract, develop and engage talent in a complex and rapidly changing business environment.
