‘Beyond Diversity & Inclusion to Belonging‘, the theme for this year’s event reflects our aspirations for Asia as we gather together for the first time to celebrate great workplaces from around Asia! Organizations need to leverage on the full passion and creativity of all their people to realize the promise of today’s new opportunities, increase agility and inventiveness, and grow their economic success in an increasingly demanding vocal marketplace.
We bring you a brand new program this year, expanding our half-day Singapore Best Workplaces Awards Ceremony to a 2-day program, incorporating site visits, panel discussions and forums with C-suite executives and HR practitioners. They are designed to provide participants with opportunities to discuss, learn and be inspired about how we can build Great Places to Work FOR ALL, right here in Asia.

Opened in 1887, Raffles Singapore is one of the few remaining great 19th century hotels in the world. No visit to Singapore is complete without a stay at Raffles; tradition demands it. Raffles welcomes guests in 2019 as it writes a new chapter after an extensive restoration, breathing new life into the storied hotel. Its restoration was designed to ensure that the hotel retains what is so special about Raffles – the ambience, the service, the charm and the heritage of the hotel.
Experience its legendary service, enjoy its newly opened bars, restaurants and boutiques whilst exploring graceful courtyards and relaxing in cosy social spaces. With enhanced comfort and splendour for the discerning traveller, guests get to immerse themselves in its striking architecture and graceful service for that unique feeling of being somewhere very special in the heart of the business and civic district.

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.
