Cisco announced that it has clinched the second position in the Best Companies to Work For 2016 award in Singapore, highlighting the company’s focus on combining employee enrichment program and innovative technologies.
Lim Hwa Choo, Head of Human Resources ASEAN, Cisco Systems comments on the win. At Cisco, we believe that employees are at the heart of what makes us successful and our strong focus on employee experience is one of our greatest differentiators.
We’re excited that the Great Place to Work Institute has recognized it in this year’s list of Best Companies to Work for in Singapore, where we clinched the second spot for two consecutive years.
“Flexible work culture is becoming increasingly important in many organizations around the world, and it is something we have always encouraged at Cisco. Our range of innovative technologies provides multiple ways to help our employees achieve work-life balance while delivering the results that the business needs.”
These technologies also enable us to improve our ability to recruit, engage and retain talent, as well as reinforce trust, empowerment and inclusion. This forms the foundation of a culture that we’re immensely proud of.
“Although our technology changes the way the world works, lives, plays and learns, our edge comes from our people. We believe that people are most inspired when they feel their work and ideas really matter. It is the rationale behind “Our People Deal”, our employee-enriching program that helps us shape the experience we want our people to have every day, regardless of their level.”
In an era of accelerated change, people will always remain an organization’s best asset. We played an instrumental role in helping Singapore develop its first Internet connection and have introduced cutting-edge technologies to the country, which would not have been possible without the work and commitment of our people.
It is such an honor to see our efforts paying off with this recognition from the Great Place to Work Institute, and we hope this will continue to inspire our people to be the next game changers in this industry.
