Two Philippine companies topped the 2021 Best Workplaces in Asia list in two different categories, while seven others joined other Asian companies to complete the 2021 roster, according to Great Place to Work Philippines.
Canva Philippines, the online design company founded by Filipino-Australian Melanie Perkins, topped the Best 100 Small and Medium Business category, while DHL Express ranked first among the Best 30 Multinational Companies (MNC) in Asia.
Great Place to Work surveyed over 3.3 million employees from over 1,000 companies, across 16 countries in Asia and the Middle East to determine the 200 companies from 18 different industries in three categories—Small and Medium (10-499 employees), Large (500+) and Multinational.
Western Union Services Philippines Inc., on the other hand, placed 7th in the Best 70 Large category.
Completing the MNC category are Ericsson Telecommunications, Inc, 7th; American Express International, 9th; Synchrony Global Service, 13th; Paypal Philippines, 16th; SAS Institute, 22nd; and S&P Global Philippines, 25th.
“The Best Workplaces in Asia 2021 List is extra special because this is the first year that Philippine-based companies are being recognized with this gold standard of recognition,” said Antoniette Mendoza-Talosig, managing partner, Great Place to Work Philippines.
“With these Philippine companies performing very satisfactorily among the best workplaces in the region, Filipinos have excellent opportunities to be a part of organizations that are committed to fairness, pride, innovation and employee well-being. We hope that this also serves as an inspiration for other Filipino companies,” she added.
For businesses listed among Best Workplaces in Asia, 81 percent of employees said they experience well-being at work, defined by factors such as feeling cared for and believing their workplace is a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work in. INQ
