Archroma, for the second time in a row, has announced that Archroma Pakistan bagged two awards viz. ‘Employer of the year’ and ‘CEO of the year’ in the multinational segment, in a nationwide contest organised by the Employers Federation of Pakistan (EFP). The award highlights the company’s focused commitment on corporate social responsibility.

The efforts of Archroma Pakistan Limited earned Mujtaba Rahim, ‘CEO of the year 2016’ award.

The EFP has granted the ‘Employer of the year’ award in recognition of Archroma Pakistan’s excellence achieved in the areas of corporate management relating to human resources, industrial relations, observance of labour standards, best practices in finance, ethical marketing management, employee motivation and team work.

“Archroma’s success is first and foremost driven by its employees. We strongly encourage them to continuously challenge the status quo in the deep belief that we can make our industry sustainable. Our best practices in the entire management areas are built with this concept in mind, and have resulted in high motivation within our diverse teams, working as a strong unifying force that leads to strengthen Archroma’s position as a top performing company in Pakistan,” commented Vaqar Arif, head of finance, Archroma Pakistan, on receiving the awards.

Archroma, a global leader in colour and speciality chemicals, “is committed in maintaining the highest standards in occupational health and safety and to fostering environmental protection through recycling and reuse at all it sites in Pakistan,” said the company in a press release.

The award ceremony was recently held in Karachi, at a well-attended gathering of corporate heads, government officials and International Labour Organisation (ILO) representatives and business groups. The chief guest of the function was Nasir Hussain Shah, provincial minister of labour. (VM)
