Jakarta, November 8, 2023 – PT Energia Prima Nusantara (EPN), a subsidiary of PT United Tractors Tbk (UT), received its first award at the Stellar Workplace Award 2023. This recognition is presented to EPN for its commitment to enhancing employee well-being. The award ceremony was held at Hotel Le Méridien in Jakarta on September 8, 2023, and Sukendi, the Head of the Human Capital and General Services Department, presented the award.
Under the theme “New Gen Engagement & Branding,” this award aims to create a positive image in the value proposition to attract and develop young talent. In this occasion, EPN received the Stellar Workplace Recognition in Employee Commitment and Stellar Workplace Recognition in Employee Satisfaction categories. These awards were given to EPN for having a high employee commitment index in going the extra mile to contribute positively to the company. Furthermore, EPN was recognized for having a high employee job satisfaction index, with positive employee feedback regarding the company, colleagues, and customers.
Estiarty Haryani, the Head of the Planning and Development Agency at the Ministry of Manpower of the Republic of Indonesia, emphasized that Indonesia’s demographic landscape is changing rapidly, with the working-age population (15-64 years) increasing and peaking in 2050.
“Indonesia’s demographic bonus makes it one of the countries with the largest workforce in Asia. However, at the same time, the dependency ratio is increasing due to the growing elderly population (age 65 and above). Additionally, low levels of education and productivity contribute to Indonesian workers’ relatively weak bargaining position. This presents a unique challenge for organizations in the future,” said Estiarty Haryani.
Today’s workplace is dominated by Generation Z, which is known for its flexibility. Therefore, EPN continues to adapt to create a comfortable environment for its employees. Work-life balance is crucial in the modern working world, allowing employees to balance work and personal life.
“This award further motivates EPN to improve the quality of the working environment that supports employee development. Effective leadership, clear guidance, conflict minimization, team motivation, and creating a harmonious work environment are all vital aspects,” said Sukendi, Head of the Human Capital and General Services Department.
Through this award, EPN reaffirms its commitment to creating a workplace that inspires, supports, and motivates employees to enhance business operations, productivity, and the achievement of targets.
