|GOOD WORKPLACE AWARDS 2023|
According to international studies*, companies with higher employee retention rates outperformed their peers by 22% in terms of revenue growth, 26% in terms of customer satisfaction, and demonstrated higher effectiveness in innovation and competitiveness. About 94% of employees would stay longer if their employers invested in their career development, and 54% if they felt valued and appreciated, which goes to show the importance of leadership, career growth, workplace culture, conditions, and perks in talent retention.
Talent retention is not only essential to business growth, it is key to economic development and sustainable development. That’s why the theme of this year’s "New Work Summit: Good Workplace Awards” Annual Forum is “Talent Retention - for Business & Economic Development and the SDGs". The forum will provide a platform for industry leaders and GWA 2022 winners to disseminate their best practices in talent retention, help set new and innovative standards and solutions, and award the GWA 2023 winners.
Good Workplace Awards will be organized by Nito on Friday, 26 May 2023 in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia in partnership with EuroChamber, Zorig Foundation and the Business Council of Mongolia.

|Member Insight: EuroChamber's Interview|
|Interview with U.Bolortuya, Managing Partner, Tsogt and Nandin LLP|
What is your company’s most significant accomplishment in the past year? What is your company’s priority for this year?
We have successfully overcome the post-pandemic difficulties. We accepted and were open to the need to change from the traditional way to the new normal in terms of finance, management, and human resource policies. That helped us to succeed during this period. This year, we aim to standardize our legal professional services and bring them to the next level. By doing this, not only "lawyer-client" but also "lawyer-lawyer" relationships should be standardized - it could increase productivity and reduce risks caused by uncertainty.
What is a good experience at your company that you would like to share with others?
We have been providing legal services in the business sector for over 20 years. We aim to provide business-oriented, down-to-earth advice and services by understanding the real needs of our clients while prioritizing professionalism. We provided legal services in many areas. We have many experiences such as - participating as an expert in several international arbitration disputes, successfully resolving major tax disputes, being responsible for legal issues in the establishment of a private stock exchange, and participating in due diligence investigations in large transnational transactions.

Please tell us what kind of book/ movie/ drama or any other art that made the deepest impression on you recently.
"Soyoliin urtuu" (Cultural station) magazine. I felt that it was a work that interestingly expressed who we are (Mongolians) through the historical research of cultural studies and allowed us to look at our culture and traditions from a different angle.
What has been the most significant benefit of being a member of EuroChamber Mongolia?
I am open to presenting specific problems faced by businesses at the policy level and participating in solving them as an individual or as an organization. Also, the activities of working groups are held regularly. These activities serve as a channel for obtaining a wide range of information and networking. This makes it easier to sense the market and business environment and to make decisions in one's own activities.
