The 2018 Best Workplaces in Asia build inclusive workplaces where employees feel proud of their accomplishments and create strong bonds with colleagues and leaders while achieving business goals. These workplaces are distinguished by their extraordinary levels of trust, pride, and camaraderie. Putting their people first is a key priority for these organisations and it is this commitment to providing strong, caring, and innovative cultures that are celebrated in the Best Workplaces in Asia list.

More than 1,200 organisations participated in the survey process, representing the voices of more than two million employees across nine countries. The 65 companies that make up the 2018 Best Workplaces in Asia list outshined the rest in their commitment to caring for their employees and providing environments where they can thrive. An impressive 92% of employees at this year’s best say that their company is a great workplace.

Since 2015, Great Place to Work has identified the top organisations that create great workplaces in the Asia/Pacific and Middle East regions through publishing the annual Best Workplaces in Asia list. The list recognises organisations in three size categories: Small & Medium (20-500); Large (501+); and Multinational. To be considered organisations must appear on one or more national lists in one of the nine countries represented and meet the minimum global quantitative threshold on the Trust Index©survey. The survey period for the 2018 Best Workplaces in Asia list took place between 2017-2018.

DHL (Keells) Ltd. contributed to DHL Asia’s ranking as the No: 2 Best Workplace on the Best Multinational workplaces category of the Asia List. 99X Technology Ltd. was the only home-grown company to be recognised from Sri Lanka in the Best Small and Medium Workplaces category. 

Commenting on Best Workplaces Asia List 2018, Kshanika Ratnayaka, Great Place to Work in Sri Lanka CEO stated, “We are very proud to see these 2 Sri Lankan Organisations recognised again on the list of Best Workplaces in Asia. They are an inspiration to organisations all over Sri Lanka. We commend their effort in building Great Workplaces FOR ALL and enabling employees to maintain good relations with managers, peers and job.”

DHL (Keells) Ltd. hosts ‘My Talent World’ – an integrated online learning portal that offers employees a variety of e-learning courses and content for all stakeholder groups. This practice bridges short-term capability gaps, while providing employees with details of their employee development reviews, succession plans, individual development plans and the completion status of CIS (Certified International Specialist) Training in their roles.

99X Technology Ltd. incorporates ShoutOut Boxes as one of the ways to actively listen to employees. ShoutOut Boxes have been made accessible to every employee to raise their suggestions, ideas, pain points or concerns – directly or anonymously – which are then diligently reviewed by the Top Management themselves (CEO and two members of the Management Team) once in every two weeks. 

Great Place to Work is the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace culture. Through proprietary assessment tools, certification programs, including Best Workplaces lists, Great Place to Work provides benchmarks, framework, and expertise needed to create, sustain, and recognise outstanding workplace cultures. Great Place to Work provides culture consulting services to businesses, non-profits, and government agencies in over 50 countries across six continents and provides many opportunities for recognition.
