Advanced Info Service (AIS), the country's largest mobile operator by subscribers, has won the Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise (MIKE) award for 2020.

"In the six years since AIS announced its vision of becoming a digital life service provider, our top priority has been creating a corporate culture aware that using innovation can inform both the forms and the methods of people's thinking," said Kantima Lerlertyuttitham, chief human resources officer at AIS.

"This includes managing knowledge for transfer through digital platforms, bringing a new capability to meet the needs of a digital world, and delivering tangible and sustainable performance."

The award is given for leadership in Thai innovation and technology to support sustainable national development, as chosen by a panel of Fortune 500 executives and business experts.

"It is a source of great pride for the AIS team that this award for companies with innovation, knowledge management and internal HR is also focused on the transmission of information," Ms Kantima said.

"We believe knowledge is the key weapon to upgrade the capabilities of Thais for them to competently guide the country into the future."
