Philippines Best Workplaces™ Insights Report 2021

Spring is the season of new beginnings, a chance to renew from the lessons and struggles of the year gone by.

Yet, the year that passed was unlike any other. 2020 blew a string of calamities and a global pandemic that brought the world to its knees and the Philippines was not spared from its wrath. In fact, hundreds of thousands lost their jobs, many businesses were closed, and many lives were changed. What is certain is this – the past year was difficult to recover from, and we are none closer to spring in its aftermath.

But we all yearn for Hope, and that abounds in the Philippines. Resilience. Spirit. Community. These are the unique qualities that often describe Filipinos, whether they be in the motherland or overseas. And for this reason, we continue to celebrate the Heroes that embody these special traits, and whose compassion and determination have pulled us through the toughest of times.

Great Place to Work® Philippines is proud to Honor the Heroism of Filipino Workers and Employers.

Despite the challenges we faced, many chose to rise from the ashes of 2020 and carried on supporting their companies, providing for their families, and even helping their neighbours, friends, and countrymen in need. The reward these heroes seek is not for themselves, but to see everyone around them, especially those they hold dear, thrive.

The struggles are far from over, but by bringing to light the Philippines Best Workplaces™ 2021, we wish to impart and remind the values that have carried us through the seasons of change – care, trust, respect, camaraderie, and love. May these continue to bind us together and tide us through what lies ahead.

To our Filipino workplace heroes, this is for you.

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.
