Three pharmaceutical companies have put their names on the list of best employers in Korea this year, industry officials said Friday.

Roche Korea CEO Matt Sause (third from left) and company employees commemorate their company’s placing on the top-10 list of 2017 Best Employer Korea.

Roche Korea has placed eighth, Roche Diagnostics Korea ranked ninth, and Hanmi Global took 10th place in the Aon Hewitt’s list of 2017 Best Employer Korea, Roche Korea said Friday.

Topping the list was LG Display, followed by DHL Korea, Dongwha, Lam Research Korea, KLA-Tencor Korea, KT and FedEx Korea.

Aon Hewitt based their selection on categories such as high employee commitment, excellent employment brand, effective leadership, and performance culture. The high rankers have reportedly demonstrated top business performance, too, according to the consulting firm.

It evaluated Roche Korea as having a highly flexible organizational culture, and as a responsible company that is patient-oriented, the Korean branch of the Swiss pharma giant said.

“With our 34th anniversary in Korea, Roche has created a flexible work environment that enables employees to explore various opportunities to change their lives more openly to execute ‘patient-centricity’ values,” the company said.

It has conducted a series of training programs such as job shadowing and job experience for career opportunity (JECO) while recording a high internal recruitment rate of about 50 percent. Around 52 percent of its employees and 67 percent of its executives are also women, it added.

"Roche Korea is establishing a high-level work environment to cultivate talented human resources and contribute to the development of the biopharmaceutical industry in Korea,” said Roche Korea CEO Matt Sause. “We will work toward providing innovative medicines for the healthy lives of Korean people.”
