Absen has been recognised as one of China’s Best Managed Companies in Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies (BMC) programme.
The BMC programme is a global initiative that identifies and recognises private companies with advanced management ideas and business performance. Key factors in the evaluation of a company’s management ability include strategy, capabilities, commitment and financial strength. This year, the selection criteria also considered resiliency in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Absen was deemed to have shown extraordinary competency in all areas, allowing the company to weather these difficult times.
Absen achieved the #1 global export position for the 11th consecutive year and will next year celebrate its 20th anniversary. Throughout 2020, Absen has continued to make improvements to its management systems, IT systems and end-to-end processes with the goal of becoming a fully ‘customer-centric’ organisation and while being underpinned and guided by a strong corporate culture and sound financial management. The company has also invested in talent development and corporate social responsibility practices.
Zhao Jian, BMC Managing Partner, explained that resilience creates sustainable value for enterprises. Long-lasting businesses and first-class enterprises have experienced several economic cycles, and will have more comprehensive and sophisticated strategies. The greater an enterprise’s long-term mission, the greater its vitality. “Highly resilient enterprises” have developed strong immunity.
Absen Europe’s Head of Brand and Marketing, Alex Couzins, commented: “We are delighted to receive this award again this year, as we know that BMC Awards examines every component of a company, and this is confirmation that we are heading in the right direction. Getting this business accolade will further boost our confidence in continuing to improve our business management as well as our products and services.”
