Facebook is the brand Malaysians would be proudest to work for

June 1, 2018

Which brand would you be proud to work for?

Facebook apparently.
The social media giant has captured the hearts of Malaysians in YouGov’s latest survey. Huawei meanwhile claimed the Number 1 spot as the brand with the most improved reputation as an employer.

YouGov, the international Internet-based market research and data analytics firm came up with a ranking ‘Employers Brand Reputation’ score. YouGov asked Malaysians for a year whether they were proud or embarrassed to work at 368 different brands.

The social media giant tops the Employer Reputation rankings with a score of 51.7, comfortably ahead of the others on the list – auto manufacturers Mercedes Benz (43.7) and BMW (43.2) are in second and third positions respectively. Online retailer Lazada takes the fourth spot (41.9) followed by financial services brand Maybank (41.1).

The rest of the list is made up of international brands. Messenger service WhatsApp takes sixth place (40.9), followed by Apple (40.0), and Google (38.1). Auto manufacturers Honda (37.5) and Toyota (36.0) round out the top ten.

YouGov has also published its top ten improvers, which is topped by Huawei. The telecommunications giant increased its score by +11.3 points over the past year, comfortably ahead of second-placed McDonalds (+6.6). Car maker Proton is third (+6.5) followed by social media platform Instagram (+5.7), and auto manufacturer Perodua (+5.4).
It is interesting to note that there are only 4 Malaysian brands in the rankings.
