DUBAI, UAE: Today, Great Place to Work® announced its 2022 Best Workplaces in Asia. The list is based on over 1 million survey responses across Asia and the Middle East, representing the experience of more than 4.7 million employees in the region. We are very excited to be recognizing 8 Multinational, 15 Large and 21 Small and Medium companies from the Middle East.
This recognition is based on confidential survey data assessing employee experiences of trust, innovation, company values and leadership. Companies are also evaluated on how well they are creating a For All™ workplace experience, inclusive of all employees no matter who they are or what they do.
Employees at winning workplaces are having a far superior experience than the global average. According to Great Place to Work 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 Best Workplaces in Asia 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.
“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Asia for putting the well-being of their employees first,” said Michael C. Bush, Global CEO of Great Place to Work.

Great Place to Work identifies Best Workplaces in Asia™ by surveying over 1 million employees in Asia and the Middle East about the key factors that create great workplaces for all and analyzing company workplace programs impacting over 4.7 million employees in the region.
To be considered, companies must first be identified as outstanding in their local region by appearing on one or more of our Best Workplaces lists in Greater China (including mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), India, Indon
Companies rank in three size categories: Small and Medium (10-499 employees); Large (500+); and Multinational.
