SINGAPORE — Internet company Bytedance, technology company Dyson and national carrier Singapore Airlines were among the top 20 most attractive companies to work for in Singapore in 2023, according to a study by recruitment agency Randstad.

The study, titled Randstad Employer Brand Research Singapore report, had surveyed 2,753 Singapore-based employees and job seekers in January 2023 and sought to measure brand awareness and brand attractiveness of commercial companies.

Respondents were asked to rate a list of 75 organisations on 10 employee value proposition drivers such as "attractive salary and benefits", "work-life balance" and "career progression opportunities".

The results of the survey showed a mix of companies from various industries in the top 20. Here is Randstad's 2023 list of the top 20 most attractive companies to work for in Singapore, in alphabetical order:

Top 20 most attractive companies to work for in Singapore in 2023

  • Bytedance

  • CapitaLand

  • Changi Airport Group

  • Danaher Corporation

  • DBS

  • Dyson

  • Edwards Lifesciences

  • Emerson Asia Pacific

  • ExxonMobil

  • IBM

  • InterContinental Hotels Group

  • JP MorganChase

  • Marina Bay Sands

  • Medtronic

  • Pratt and Whitney

  • Procter & Gamble

  • Resorts World Sentosa

  • Shell

  • Singapore Airlines

  • UBS

Five new entrants made the 2023 list after the annual list went on hiatus between 2020 and 2022 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine War.

The five new companies are American conglomerate Danaher Corporation, industrial manufacturers Emerson Asia Pacific, oil and gas giant ExxonMobil, hospitality chain InterContinental Hotels Group, and financial services firm JPMorgan Chase.

Readers should also note that the list is unranked as the survey's full results, which would include data determining the rankings of each company, have not been released. Randstad told Yahoo Finance Singapore that the full results will be available in late-July 2023.

Employers must adapt

In the same study conducted by Randstad, 57 per cent of the respondents said it is critical for them to work for an employer that actively promotes equity, diversity and inclusion.

The findings also revealed that 21 per cent of respondents would rather be unemployed than work for an employer that does not align with their personal values, while 44 per cent of workers find it important to work for a company that offers mental health and well-being benefits.

"The world of work has changed significantly since 2020, and so have talent expectations. The pandemic, social movements and technological advancements as well as environmental challenges have altered the way people think about their careers, well-being and values," said Jaya Dass, managing director of permanent recruitment at Randstad Asia Pacific.

"To attract and retain the best talent in this new social contract, employers have to evolve and adapt to their changing needs and aspirations," said Dass.
