People Come First – How PCF Singapore’s Workplace Culture Provides Strength Through the COVID Crisis

Share This Page To:

Often, the dedication and commitment of PCF’s frontliners are overlooked, but they continue to be buoyed forward by the indelible leadership and vision of its leader, Victor Bay. Even as the COVID Crisis affected the world over, including Singapore, these special individuals shone through for their communities and supported each other. In the midst of their challenges, PCF achieved Great Place to Work-Certification™ through the voices of their employees.

We invited Victor Bay to share how he motivates his team and continue to engage these educators and caregivers to inspire, nurture and care for the young and old alike. This webinar entitled “People Come First – How PCF Singapore’s Workplace Culture Provides Strength Through the COVID Crisis,” is hosted by our very own Evelyn Kwek.

The PAP Community Foundation (PCF) is a charitable foundation founded by the People’s Action Party (PAP) Singapore in 1986. 

PCF is committed to nurturing a multi-racial, fair, just and inclusive society by providing educational, welfare and community services. It is the largest preschool operator in Singapore with an enrolment of over 40,000 children and provides quality and accessible preschool education through 360 Sparkletots preschools island-wide. PCF also operates 7 Sparkle Care senior care centres that provide centre-based community care services for seniors who are physically frail and in need of supervision.

Philippines Best Workplaces™ 2024 Methodology

Employees respond 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, company values, and the effectiveness of their leaders to ensure these are consistently experienced.

To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified™

standard. Trust Index©️ survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better to ensure the survey results truly represent all employees.

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.

Companies with 10 to 99 people were considered for the Small category.

Companies with 100 employees or more were considered for the Medium category.

Companies exceeding 1,000 employees were considered for the Large category.


To be eligible for the World’s Best Workplaces list, a company must apply and be named to a minimum of 5 national Best Workplaces lists within our current 58 countries, have 5,000 employees or more worldwide, and at least 40% of the company’s workforce (or 5,000 employees) must be based outside of the home country. Extra points are given based on the number of countries where a company surveys employees with the Great Place to Work Trust Index©, and the percentage of a company’s workforce represented by all Great Place to Work surveys globally. Candidates for the 2017 Worlds Best Workplaces list will have appeared on national workplaces lists published in September 2016 through August 2017.
