2022 Asia’s best workplaces revealed: DHL Express, Cisco and Hilton come in top 3


These results are based on a survey of employees across Asia and the Middle East.

Great Place to Work has announced the 2022 Best Workplaces in Asia. DHL Express, Cisco and Hilton have taken the top three spots in the multinational category.

The rankings are determined by surveying over one million employees across Asia and the Middle East about the key factors that create great workplaces for all, including employee experiences of trust, innovation, company values, and leadership, and analysing company workplace programmes.

According to the data, 88% of employees at the Best Workplaces in Asia on average reported having a positive employee experience. For the average global workforce, only 55% of workers report a similarly positive experience.

The report said the results show that “investing in people is a proven path to business success. Those that can create a fair work environment that fills employees with pride will outperform the competition.”
