The founder of Taiwanese restaurant group Wowprime Corp (王品) was voted by Taiwan’s salaried workers in an online survey as their top choice if they sought a job change and a new boss.
E-Job, a platform initiated by the Council of Labor Affairs to help people find jobs and aid bosses in finding employees, found in its latest survey that Wowprime chairman Steve Day (戴勝益) was the boss that Taiwanese workers most wanted to work for last year.
The E-Job poll conducted between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31 found that 17.62 percent of respondents chose Dai as their new boss and his restaurants as their top choice for a workplace change.
Dai has expanded his business empire in 14 years to 11 restaurant brands in Taiwan, making Wowprime the largest restaurant group in the country, with 160 stores and 6,000 employees.
Dai was followed by Yulon Group (裕隆集團) chairman Kenneth Yen (嚴凱泰), as the second most desirable boss, and Cher Wang (王雪紅), chairwoman of smartphone maker HTC Corp (宏達電). Yen won 14.88 percent of the votes, while Wang garnered 14.15 percent of votes.
Other desirable bosses included Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (台積電) chairman Morris Chang (張忠謀), Delta Electronics Inc (台達電) chairman Bruce Cheng (鄭崇華), Hon Hai Group (鴻海集團) chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘), Acer Inc (宏碁) founder Stan Shih (施振榮) and Asustek Computer Inc (華碩) chairman Jonney Shih (施崇棠).
