German specialty chemicals company LANXESS has been honored to be awarded Top Employer China 2022.

Shanghai, January 20, 2022 – German specialty chemicals company LANXESS today has been honored to be awarded Top Employer China 2022. This marks the fifth year in a row that the company is being certified by the reputed Top Employers Institute.


“In spite of challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, LANXESS maintained steady growth in China, including the opening of our new APAC Application Development Center and the addition of new production lines. This could not have been achieved without the efforts of our employees. Their health and good career development opportunities now and in the future are important to us,” Ming Cheng Chien, President of LANXESS Asia-Pacific Region, said.


Better and more transparent offering for employees

LANXESS has been trying to expand its offering for employees and make it even more attractive. This year, LANXESS launched the “You Matter” program worldwide. By communicating the idea directly, the company shows that it cares about every employee.


The You Matter program covers six main pillars, including market-based fair pay, XWORK, learning and development opportunities, family and health, financial protection and other benefits. LANXESS has also adopted a series of personal development measures to support the continuous learning and development of employees. By offering leadership training, mentoring and coaching, the company enables employees to fully develop their potential.


“You Matter is the guiding principle of the six pillars. We hope to enable employees to really realize this through a variety of benefits and protections, because You Matter!” Wells Chou, Head of Human Resources Asia-Pacific, said.


LANXESS also wants employees to enjoy a more relaxed life outside of work and to this end offers a wide range of support to balance their work and life. The company encourages everyone to achieve work-life balance through flexible work patterns including mobile working, flexible working time models such as irregular working hours and part-time work, and the new design for the workplace. The flexible approach of working has received very positive feedback from employees during the pandemic.


The Top Employers China certification is independently run by the Top Employers Institute headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, which invites companies with mature human resources functions meeting certain standards to apply for certification each year.
