Getting Great Place To Work Certified™  is more than just badges and bragging rights. You are part of a company that puts its people first. 

This milestone is your chance to celebrate your employees, join a global community of exceptional companies and put your company name on the map of desirable workplaces. 

Many companies ask us: “How can we use our Certification throughout the year, not just the initial announcement?” 

Here are some fun ways we have seen other workplaces spread the love throughout the year: 

1. Get it published at your local news!  

Share your Certified status with your local media and explain what getting Certified means to your organization. This is your chance to showcase how you care for your employees and it does not stop at just being certified, it’s your organization’s continuous commitment to greatness.  

2. Throw a Virtual Party 

Some of you may be navigating the landscape of remote work and various locations, the best way to elevate the camaraderie is by organizing a virtual celebration. Imagine a virtual party with music, games and shout-outs to your employees. (Bonus points for picking a theme and coordinating Zoom backgrounds!)

3. Spread the Word on Social Media!

Give your social media followers a sneak peek at your company celebration. Share office party pics to your Instagram story, create a reel or video for Instagram & Facebook. Use our hashtag #GPTWCertified to join the conversation with the rest of the certified community globally.  

4. Acknowledge your People

Noticed someone making the workday a little brighter for their coworkers? Take the opportunity torecognize employeesacross your company for helping create a great workplace. Tributes from managers are flattering, but peer recognition is even better. 

Organizing a Secret Santa-style matching system invites employees to think thoughtfully about how they recognize their colleague. One-to-one appreciation also gives every employee time in the limelight. 

5. Help your People Give Back

With everything happening in the world, support your employees’ generosity by matching donations to charitable causes of their choice. 

6. Reward your Customers

Pay the love forward to your clients or customers. Show them how important employee happiness is to you by giving away freebies or discounts on the day you become Certified orCertification Nation Day. Run a hospitality business? Give everyone a free latte!

Great Place To Work identifies Best Workplaces in Asia™ by surveying 2.1 million employees in Asia and the Middle East about the key factors that create great workplaces for all and analyzing company workplace programs impacting 5.9 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 Bahrain, Greater China (including China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), India, Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Oman, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, UAE, Vietnam during 2022 or early 2023.

Companies rank in three size categories: Small and Medium (10-499 employees); Large (500+); and Multinational. Multinational organizations are also assessed on their efforts to create great workplaces across multiple countries in the region. They must appear on at least two national lists in Asia and the Middle East and have at least 1,000 employees worldwide with at least 40% (or 5,000+) of those employees located outside the headquarters country.

To determine the 2023 Indonesia Best Workplaces™, Great Place To Work®️ analyzed confidential survey feedback representing nearly 20,000 employees across different industries in Indonesia.

Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place To Work For All™️. 85% of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do.

Great Place To Work analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical in their industry. The remaining 15% of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.

To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place To Work-Certified™ standard. To ensure survey results truly represent all employees, Great Place To Work requires that Trust Index©️ survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better.

We review any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results.
