Zoetis was recently recognized with a Best Practice Award as part of the Alpha i High Quality Workplace Index from China Business Network, a well-known Chinese news source. Acknowledged especially for our commitment to social responsibility by advancing animal health and public welfare, Zoetis was one of twelve employers awarded in the Best Practices category, aside other highly reputable global corporations.
“It is a great honor to be recognized as a High Quality Workplace in China,” said Mike Wang, Senior Vice President, Greater China Cluster. “This recognition is a testament to the commitment of our colleagues and their focus on our customers and the animals in their care.”
In order to be considered for the award, Zoetis Human Resources colleagues submitted a self-assessment; 50 Zoetis China colleagues completed a survey focused on benefits, colleague development and engagement; and the company presented two case studies demonstrating how Zoetis brings value to society in China. The cases submitted were “Zoetis Academe,” a training program for pig farmers that has improved the breeding industry in China by guiding more than 10,000 people since 2009; and the “World Veterinary Day 5K Charity Run,” an annual fundraising event organized by Zoetis to protect the health of stray animals and promote pet adoption.
