Top 10 Companies That Singaporeans Are Dying To Work For

Jobstreet Reveals The Top 10 Companies

In the search for the Top Companies of the Year, companies were pegged on three underlying factors that employees tend to consider when searching for their next job – career development opportunities and basic salary, calibre of management and leadership team, work environment as well as company culture.

Without further ado, here are the top 10 companies – in ascending order:

10. IBM

As expected, American tech companies are a recurring theme in the list.

First, we have IBM at the 10th spot. This multinational tech company replaces Keppel Corporation from last year’s list to round off the top companies of 2017.

While they are a name that consumers don’t identify with anymore, businesses all over the world are still dependent on their portfolio of products – hardware, software, infrastructure, and cloud computing solutions.

9. Procter & Gamble and DBS Bank

Making a comeback this year is American home and consumer hygiene manufacturer Procter & Gamble, which has successfully retained its spot from last year.

While they continue to have a strong presence as a preferred employer locally and overseas, they are joined by DBS Bank for joint 9th this year.

Being Euromoney’s world’s best digital bank and Aon Hewitt’s leading employer in Asia, DBS is changing the way we look at banks. Besides just empowering employees with fulfilling careers, they are on a mission to create an environment where employees feel connected and valued as they progress in their career within the bank.

They also have a holistic suite of people initiatives in place to help equip staff to be the best, and be the change and difference that they can be at every stage of their lives.
