Great Place to Work® releases its inaugural annual list as Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ 2020

TAIPEI, Sept. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, announces the Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ 2020.

Around the world, many have adapted to the change from working in the office to now working from home. Great workplaces are now extended to our living rooms, coffee shops and even bedrooms. Our celebrations have also extended to the digital world to honour the Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ virtually.  

The ceremony celebrated the pioneering companies being recognised by Great Place to Work® as the Best Workplaces in Taiwan 2020, all of which are leading the way in creating high-trust, high-performing workplace cultures.

The theme of the event was “Better Together”, which is an initiative that was launched by Great Place to Work® globally earlier this year. The Better Together initiative offers guidance and resources to help organizations to navigate the challenges that COVID-19 has brought to our workplaces and lives.

The Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ Awards Ceremony was held virtually via ZOOM and it was a wonderful moment to witness. Attendees from all over the world tuned in to participate and celebrate together. These included not only the awardees but also other organizations and affiliates from around the world. During the event some of the awardees’ outstanding practices related to COVID-19 response were shared, which highlighted a variety of policies and practices that were implemented in order to provide support to employees and their families as well as their extended communities.

The event also delivered a special announcement that MARS INC. was named as a LEGEND in the Greater China region.

This recognition honours an organization that has been maintaining a high-TRUST workplace culture continuously for 5 years. And this organization has been tirelessly promoting workplace culture with TRUST for their employees for five years or more. This is truly an amazing accomplishment. 

This year 25 organizations participated in the survey studies, while 10 companies earned the Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ recognition.

In addition to the excitement of celebrating the Best Workplaces in Taiwan 2020™, the research findings showed that TRUST remains the key winning differentiator, and that the award-winning companies are leading the way in creating a great workplace even when facing the most challenging year in recent history. When analyzing the Trust Index© survey results by dimensions for the Taiwan market alongside the most recent Hong Kong and Greater China results, the results from the Taiwan list are comparable to those of Greater China. This indicates a high level of maturity and sophistication in Taiwanese companies. Among the 5 dimensions measured in the Trust Index© survey, Taiwan scored the highest in terms of Pride, a dimension measuring the relationship between employees and their job, and whether they have strong commitment and pride in what they do. 

Additionally, the event also shared about the certification programme of Best Workplaces for Women™ which is open for all organizations to join. The certification helps to promote practices that make sure women in the workplace have a fair and positive work experience and have the opportunity to contribute to the success of the business while they develop their talents personally and professionally. 

The fact is that COVID is impacting EVERYONE but all the winners of Best Workplaces in Taiwan have shown their commitment in providing support and working together. Mr. Jose Carlos Bezanilla, CEO of Great Place to Work® Greater China commented “We are proud to present the very first list of Best Workplaces® in Taiwan 2020 and even more proud of all of the organizations that are participating. We celebrate their achievements, as much as these special circumstances allow, with this rite that we hope will become the pioneering group of a collection of amazing leaders and great organizations, showing the world the great working culture that exists in Taiwan! Congratulations to all the winners!”

Finally, there were further announcements regarding upcoming events. Next up is the Best Workplaces in Greater China™ 2020 Awards Ceremony, which will be hosted around the end of the year.
