Seven companies bagged  Malaysia’s Healthiest Workplace by AIA Vitality awards

KUALA LUMPUR, 21 November 2017 – Seven companies were named winners of the first ever Malaysia’s Healthiest Workplace awards by leading insurer AIA Bhd. earlier last week.

SAP Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., International Medical University, Top Glove Sdn. Bhd., Datacom Systems (Asia) Sdn. Bhd., GlaxoSmithKline Malaysia, Nestle (Malaysia) Bhd. and Dell Global Business Center were recognised for their efforts in promoting workplace health and creating a healthier environment for their employees.

Winners were identified based on the inaugural Malaysia’s Healthiest Workplace survey in which these companies participated. Carried out by AIA in partnership with RAND Europe and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, this comprehensive science-backed study polled a total of 47 companies of small, medium and large sizes located in urban areas across Malaysia and 5,369 employees between May and July 2017 to gather insights on workplace health and wellbeing.

Anusha Thavarajah, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Bhd., presented the awards to the winning companies at the Malaysia’s Healthiest Workplace Summit held at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur.

The winners for each award category are as follows:

  1. Malaysia’s Healthiest Employees

The Malaysia’s Healthiest Workplace survey uses the scientific measure of “AIA Vitality Age”, which measures all aspects of health, including exercise, nutrition and stress, to calculate a person’s ‘health’ age as a comparison to their chronological age. The Healthiest Employees award is conferred to the winning company of which their workforce is considered healthiest, measured by the average difference between AIA Vitality Age and actual age. This category is based on the survey responses received from the employees of the participating organisations.
