"What makes me return to GESS each year is the flexibility and freedom to flourish as an educator. In the last 15 years, my class parents and my direct head of primary never failed to give me their full support and trust to develop best practices in my day-to-day teaching. This school gives me a place to engage with kids and nurture in them a love for learning!"
Shameer Bismilla, Teacher at German European School Singapore
"At GESS, we have fantastic facilities and nice, caring and professional colleagues! For a start, the HR department and supportive colleagues made my transition from Denmark to Singapore very smooth. I have also enjoyed the opportunities to learn and exchange ideas, especially with people from all over the world who have shared values and goals. I enjoy the multicultural and international environment here and have broadened my horizons by both giving to and receiving from peers."
Ann Preisler, Teacher at German European School Singapore
"At GESS, ideas can be developed, grow and be tested in the classroom. Mutual stimulation and multifaceted cooperation is part of everyday life."

ABOUT OUR METHOLOGY
To be eligible for the World’s Best Workplaces list, a company must apply and be named to a minimum of 5 national Best Workplaces lists within our current 58 countries, have 5,000 employees or more worldwide, and at least 40% of the company’s workforce (or 5,000 employees) must be based outside of the home country. Extra points are given based on the number of countries where a company surveys employees with the Great Place to Work Trust Index©, and the percentage of a company’s workforce represented by all Great Place to Work surveys globally. Candidates for the 2017 Worlds Best Workplaces list will have appeared on national workplaces lists published in September 2016 through August 2017.
ABOUT OUR METHODOLOGY
The Best Workplaces in Asia List
Great Place to Work® identifies the top organizations that create great workplaces in the Asian and Middle Eastern regions with the publication of the annual Best Workplaces in Asia list. The list recognizes companies in three size categories:
To be considered for inclusion, companies must appear on one or more of our national lists in the region, which includes Greater China (covering China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau), India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka and UAE. For the 2021 Asia List, companies ranked on the national list in the Philippines will also be included. Multinational organizations must meet the following requirements:
Multinationals also receive additional credit for their efforts to successfully create an excellent workplace culture in multiple countries in the region. The data used in the calculation of the regional list comes from national lists published in 2019 and early 2020.
