SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 21 December 2020 – In a year marked by a
pandemic and continued global uncertainty, 32 companies across Singapore have
been named among HR Asia’s Best Companies to Work for in Asia.

 

HR Asia’s Best Companies to
Work for in Asia Awards recognises companies that have shown world-class
employee engagement and workplace excellence, while displaying demonstrable
empathy and care for their employees.

The awards is Asia’s
largest, covering over 300 thousand employees across 11 markets. Employees rate
their employers using the proprietary Total Engagement Assessment Model (TEAM)
survey, which covers collective consciousness, workplace sentiment, and team
dynamics — making the HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards the
only awards programme that is entirely employee driven.

 

In Singapore, over 180
companies were shortlisted, with the final 32 named as winners. Award winners
include six-time consecutive winner Far East Organization, four-time
consecutive winners British American Tobacco, Mazars LLP, and Mundipharma
Singapore, three-time consecutive winner Borouge Pte Ltd and SAS Institute Pte
Ltd, as well as the two-time consecutive winners City Developments Limited,
Coach Singapore Pte Ltd, Evonik (SEA) Pte Ltd, NTUC First Campus Co-operative
Ltd, Sanofi and
Zuellig Pharma Singapore.

“The survey in Singapore
this year has once again highlighted the leading role played by Singaporean companies
in promoting employee welfare and engagement. Singaporean companies
consistently score higher than regional peers in such areas as group dynamics
and team cohesion; and this year is no different”, said William Ng, group
publisher and editor-in-chief of Business Media International, the publisher of
HR Asia.

 

“In times like these,
we ask the all-important question: what separates the absolute best of
employers from the good ones? Over the past 11 years of running Asia’s largest
HR media brand, and 7 of those years surveying thousands of companies and
millions of employees for the HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia®; we
distilled the shortlist of answers to only one: empathy,” added Ng.

(Asia) Pte. Ltd., Borouge Pte Ltd, Certis, Johnson
and Johnson Pte Ltd, Lazada Singapore Pte Ltd, and SAS Institute Pte Ltd.

But throughout this difficult period, we've been there for our customers," said Wendy Moore, vice president of product marketing for Trend Micro. "I'm delighted to see us recognized again for doing what we do best: Protecting global organizations through innovative, cloud-first and platform-based security.

Providers are positioned into four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries and Niche Players.
