13 Singapore firms win Best Companies to Work in Asia Awards

Thirteen companies from Singapore were announced the winners of the Best Companies to Work for in Asia Awards 2014.
The awards, organised by trade journal HR Asia, saw 113 companies competing to be known as the best workplaces in Singapore and Asia, and encompass employees' feedback and input, as well as management comments and presentation.
In total, 3,000 Singaporean employees were surveyed to determine their intention and motivation, emotional engagement and advocacy of their respective employers.
"This is one of the most scientific and extensive surveys on employee engagement and workplace practices in this region.
"Since embarking on the project last year, HR Asia has discovered that many of these companies -- both local and international -- have workplace practices that are on par with the best in the world," Tan Sai Hup, Chief Operating Officer of Business Media International, the publisher of HR Asia, said when announcing the results here.
The Awards will cover 12 markets across Asia, with Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong being the first three to announce the results.
Survey participants are asked affirmative statements about their employers, and either agree or disagree with each of the statements.
Based on these answers across the survey, the top three areas that companies are doing right are: Setting clear work expectations, Creating a harmonious work environment and Providing recognition and praise at work.
On the other hand, the three areas that scored the lowest in the survey (the ones which the employees feel their companies can improve on) are: Employees are not being informed of what's happening in the company, Lack of employees' confidence in senior management and Trusting employees to do work without interference.
The award winners include AIA Singapore Pte Ltd, CEVA Logistics Singapore Pte Ltd, Coca-Cola Singapore Beverages Pte Ltd, Dairy Farm Singapore Group, Genesis Retail Pte Ltd, Jurong Health Services Pte Ltd, Kronos Incorporated,
Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, Park Hotel Group, Pertamina Energy Services Pte Ltd, Singapore Exchange Ltd, Singapore Marriott Hotel and the Fullerton Heritage Singapore. (BERNAMA)
