A Celebration of 2021 Singapore Best Workplaces™

2021 has been a year of constant change, from pivoting business models and restructuring operations to shifting work arrangements in line with evolving safe management measures.

As the COVID-19 pandemic extended into the year, more businesses suffered, fatigue set in and people experienced greater anxiety as more succumbed to COVID-19, remote workers experienced higher stress as the line between work and family life blurred, and on-site employees struggled with health and safety concerns.

Amidst the business uncertainty and constant flux of the year, some organizations have continued to build on strong company values to reinforce a culture of trust, engaged and developed employees to provide innovation opportunities and maximize their potential, and demonstrated exemplary leadership effectiveness with a purpose driven, people first mindset. These organizations stand head and shoulders above their competitors and we are proud to recognize them as Singapore’s Best Workplaces for creating a Great Place to Work® For All™.

On 2 December 2021, we invite you and your employees to join us for a celebration of the 2021 Singapore’s Best Workplaces presented by our Guest-of-Honor, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies, Mr. Heng Swee Keat.

This year’s event will be held at Marina Bay Sands and include a special presentation of our inaugural 2021 Singapore’s Best Workplaces in Technology, as well as a panel discussion moderated by Mr. Michael C. Bush, Global CEO at Great Place to Work®, featuring DPM Heng Swee Keat and some C-Suite leaders from our 2021 Singapore Best Workplaces List.
