Asia's Best Workplaces 2020

Great Place to Work® is proud to release its 6th annual list of the Best Workplaces in Asia.

Great Place to Work® identifies the top organizations that create great workplaces in the Asia and Middle East regions through publishing the annual Best Workplaces in Asia list. This year, the research represents the voice of more than 22 lac employees across 8 countries. 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.

The list recognizes companies in three size categories:

  • Multinational
  • Large (500+)
  • Small & Medium (20 – 499)

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 multinational organizations, the participation criteria is:

  1. Have at least 1,000 employees worldwide, with at least 40% (or 5,000) of those employees based outside the headquarters country
  2. Appear on at least two national lists.

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.

No individual or jury has a say in who makes it to the list – only employee feedback and quality of people practices determine if a company is a Great Workplace in the Asia’s Best sector.
