Building an environment that nurtures individuals in their careers and personal lives is key to Zuellig Pharma’s people-first approach. The recent HR Asia’s Best Companies To Work For In Asia Awards is testament to this. Following Singapore’s win last year, our Indonesia, Taiwan and the Philippines teams were proudly recognised for their winning corporate culture during this year’s HR Asia Awards.

As part of nurturing leadership and functional capabilities of our people, continuous learning and development is critical. Resources and opportunities are constantly provided to employees in an effort to help them enhance competencies for their present role and beyond. Employees are given the opportunity to gain cross-functional experience, undergo training and are exposed to the executive leadership team as part of a mentorship programme. All this, together with the establishment of a robust performance management system, helps to identify and develop talents to become the next generation of business leaders.

Jen Garcia, VP HR and Corporate Communications, Zuellig Pharma Corporation shared, “There is something magical about working for a company like Zuellig Pharma. People always seem to have a spring in their step, a twinkle in their eye and a willingness to go out of their way to help. I’m not sure what came first – great people practices or simply great people. I’m happy that our successes are finally being recognised.”

Jason Chen, Head of HR and Compliance, Zuellig Pharma Taiwan, added, "This award recognises our efforts at creating a culture around quality solutions and experiences. We are building a great place to work and grow personally and professionally, so that we can continue to find ways to make healthcare more accessible.”

"Our success relies on the capabilities and engagement of our employees. We are passionate about what we do and with a can-do attitude, we are always able to find a solution to any problem we face," says Lanny Anggraeni, VP Human Capital at APL.

Mohd Fauzi Wahab, VP HR, concluded, “Zuellig Pharma is currently going through an exciting phase of transformation. This award not only shows that we are diverse in many ways, but that we are on the right path to building a rewarding future. Human Resources is central to driving this transformation by constantly grooming our capabilities. We are committed to building a great place to work, so that we can continue to make healthcare more accessible.”
