In addition, best employers have a total rewards strategy in place that focuses not just on pay but learning and career development opportunities as well. 76% of employees from these organisations feel that they receive appropriate recognition for their contributions.

  • DBS Bank

“Best Employers know that today’s best practices may not be tomorrow’s and are always looking to ensure their HR remains relevant and responsive to the changing culture and work-styles of their organisations.”
