QI Group named Employer of the Year at HR Asia Awards 2023

The 2023 award is themed ‘Celebrate Diversity and Inclusion’

The QI Group, the parent entity of global lifestyle and wellness company QNET, has been named Employer of the Year for the ninth consecutive year at Hong Kong’s HR Asia Awards 2023.

This year’s highly anticipated award is themed ‘Celebrate Diversity and Inclusion’, recognising companies for their commitment to embracing diversity, championing equity, and fostering inclusion in the workplace.

Rooted in the philosophy of the company’s founders, Raise Yourself To Help Mankind (RYTHM), QNET is committed to cultivating an environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to contribute, grow, and succeed – regardless of nationality or demographic.

Malou Caluza, CEO of QNET, said: “We are incredibly honoured to win this award for the ninth year in a row. It demonstrates our mission to empower people who have been integral to our company’s success since we started in 1998.

“With over 800 people from over 50 nationalities in the QNET family, we recognise that diversity, equity, and inclusion spark creativity and innovation and create a healthy working culture.

“When people feel like they belong in the workplace, they can thrive. And I’m proud to be recognised for our efforts to support our greatest asset: our people.”

Covering 15 markets across the Asian region, the HR Asia Awards evaluates organisations demonstrating high employee satisfaction, welfare, development, and excellent workplace culture.

During the judging process, nominee companies are subject to a holistic assessment of their HR policies according to industry and market benchmarks.

Some of QI Group’s award-winning, people-first policies include:

  • Two-way and omnichannel employee communications, including regular general assembly sessions where employees can directly interact with senior management and implement the WorkVivo intranet platform, one of the world’s best digital employee engagement systems.
  • An equal opportunity policy that welcomes and cultivates a diverse and welcoming workplace, valuing all individuals and developing talents equally.
  • A supportive employee development programme where people on every level of the organisation are offered learning opportunities that provide personal and professional development. This includes an e-learning platform, QiLearn, which offers more than 30 professional and personal development courses and regular workshops and seminars conducted by senior management and external professional trainers.
  • Team building and leadership training programmes, such as QI Rising, spearheaded by the company’s founders and C-suite to develop employees’ capabilities and skills.

HR Asia named QI Group one of the Best Companies To Work For In Asia for the first time in 2015, recognising the organisation for its excellent employee engagement and workplace practices, which enable employees to realise their full potential.
