Rolex is the brand that people in Hong Kong would be proudest to work for, according to a new survey.

YouGov released the latest ranking list of the YouGov BrandIndex, which asked respondents in Hong Kong whether they would be proud or embarrassed to work at 290 brands. These rankings were based on a year’s worth of data to 30 April 2018.

In a list populated by a sprinkling of upmarket brands, Rolex, the luxury watch manufacturer tops the Employer Reputation rankings with a score of 28.5. It is ahead of hospitality provider, Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts (+24.7), and payments provider VISA (23.0). Sports goods brand Nike is forth (20.7), and banking giant HSBC rounds out the top five (20.2).
