The “Best Place to Work in Asia” award is a highly esteemed international accolade presented annually by HR Asia, the premier magazine on human resources in Asia. It aims to assess and recognize businesses with outstanding HR policies, attractive remuneration packages, and the most exemplary working environments in the region.
