See you again in 2022!
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.

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:

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.
