A survey of more than 240,000 students from 12 of the world’s largest economies named Grant Thornton one of the 50 'World’s most attractive global employers'. The recognition is an output of the Universum Annual Student Survey.

Dato’ NK Jasani, Country Managing Partner of Grant Thornton Malaysia said "Thank you to the students who voted. This is fantastic recognition and is testament to all of our people around the world. Grant Thornton member firms are based in 130 countries with more than 40,000 people who make up the Grant Thornton global organisation.”

"At Grant Thornton Malaysia we strive to develop and maintain a positive workplace culture for our people,” said. “Our firm aims to provide a workplace where our people can unlock their potential for growth, both at work, at home and in their community.”

“We place emphasis on training and professional development. We encourage and provide facility for our employees to take up professional qualifications and upgrade their skills. In this regard, we participate in the various schemes promoted by TalentCorp.” 

“Grant Thornton Malaysia also places importance for social, sports and family activities and we have a vibrant staff committee to manage such fun and engaging activities for our employees.” 

In 37th position on the Universum list, Grant Thornton is “distinguished as an ideal employer.

The research was conducted by Universum, a leading global research and employer branding consultancy. To be considered in the World’s Most Attractive Employer ranking, an employer must be in the top 90% of the Universum Ideal Employer ranking in at least six of the twelve largest economies. The results are then weighted based on the gross domestic product of each market.
