Air Products has been listed in China Top 100 IDEAL™ Employers 2013 by a group of university students who are majoring in natural sciences. Air Products was rated by students in the 2013 WetFeet Career Test, the largest scale student survey for career and employer preference in China. Air Products was ranked at number 79.
China Daily’s 21st Century English Newspaper assembled the survey and it was conducted independently by Universum, a company that specilises in employer branding. Over 64 000 students involved in natural sciences, business, engineering, law, humanities/liberal arts, health and medicine from over 100 top Chinese universities were surveyed. The results of the survey have revealed how students perceive organisations as employers in the country.
Not only was Air Products ranked 79th in the overall survey but it was listed 3rd in the environmental sustainability category.
‘We feel honoured to make the list of China Top 100 IDEAL™ Employers, which is a testimony to our attractiveness to young science students as an employer of choice,’ said Stephen J. Jones, senior vice president and general manager, Tonnage Gases, Equipment and Energy, and China president, Air Products. ‘Talent development is a key component of Air Products’ company strategy. We have been working closely with universities and associations to cultivate talent win many ways, including research and development efforts, best practice and knowledge transfer, scholarships, internship programs and career development programs at Air Products. We look forward to their participation and contribution to build a more sustainable community.’
‘As the competition for talent has grown stiffer over the years with the employment market increasingly becoming a level playing field in China, every company is working hard to be viewed as an employer of choice, said William Wu, vice president of Universum, Asia Pacific as he comment on Air Products for this year’s achievements. ‘Air Products has done a great job in maintaining its strong employer brand, as well as positive associations among natural sciences students. Everyone currently working at Air Products should feel very proud.'
