DUBAI, September 5, 2022

Eight multinational, 15 large and 21 small and medium companies from the Middle East have been recognised in the 2022 Best Workplaces in Asia launched by Great Place to Work.
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, it said. 
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, said a statement.
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, it said. 
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.
"During an incredibly challenging time for the region, these companies created equitable workplaces by providing flexibility and supporting their employees through strife. The Best Workplaces in Asia embody the mission of Great Place to Work and are indeed making work great work For All."
Commenting on this year's Best Workplaces in the Asia list, Ibrahim Mougharbel, Managing Director for the UAE, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait, Great Place to Work Middle East, said: "Despite the challenges we have faced during the pandemic, we are proud to witness even more continuous growth in employee culture awareness among leaders. Our Best Workplaces™ for this year have persevered through the time of unprecedented upheaval and have continued to persevere post-pandemic and we are here to celebrate them. We are therefore not celebrating companies; we are celebrating heroes."
