FYI, this story is more than a year old

HR Asia recently conducted a survey to determine the best companies to work for in Asia.

The survey covered over seven markets across Asia, including Mainland China, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. This year, in Singapore alone, 6680 employees from 188 companies participated in the survey.

For Singapore, survey participants agreed on three areas employers in the region achieve:

  1. Meeting or exceeding customer expectation
  2. Being effective at work
  3. Employees know clearly what is expected of them at work

On the other hand, the 3 areas that score the lowest in the survey (i.e. the ones which the employees feel their companies can improve on) are:

  1. Employees feel that they do not really know what is going on in the organization
  2. Employees feel that they do not get supported by the companies in pursuing their own professional development
  3. Employees doubt that if they will be rewarded for their good performance

One of the big winners was Equinix Singapore which took home an award for the interconnection and data center services industry.

The company's vice president, human resources of Equinix APAC, Hester Shum, comments on the win, "Equinix is the leading global interconnection and data center company, and we have always been focused on growing together with our teams.

“This HR award recognizes our dedicated efforts and belief around the development of our culture - 'The Magic of Equinix', which captures the imagination and energy of our people, and makes us more collaborative, creative and open-minded.
