December 2019 - Kincentric,
a Spencer Stuart company, has named 6 organisations as
Best Employers in Singapore for 2019, as part of Kincentric's global Best
Employers program, which recognises leading employers that strive to
continuously spark change, inspire their people and accelerate business success.

Best Employers, the leading employer benchmarking
program, measures and recognises extraordinary employers that demonstrate
workplace excellence. Formerly a part of Aon, the Best Employers program is now
offered by Kincentric, a new business unit of Spencer Stuart, following the
close of Spencer Stuart's acquisition of this business from Aon on July 1,

Findings from this year's study show that Best
Employers in Singapore continue to invest in creating a highly engaged workforce,
with an employee engagement score of 77%, compared to a market average of 61%. In
today's uncertain business environment, Best Employers are also better
positioned to manage change, with 78% of employees in Best Employers believing
that their organisation is highly agile, innovative, inclusive and responsive
to changing needs (compared to 59% market average). Furthermore, 79% of these
employees agree that their senior leadership has communicated a clear vision
for the organisation (compared to 60% market average). Best Employers are also
strongly committed in nurturing and developing their employees professionally,
with 84% believing that their organisation is supportive of their learning and
development (compared to 66% market average).

Stephen Hickey, Culture & Engagement APMEA
Practice Leader at Kincentric, said, "Through Kincentric's Best Employers
program we are celebrating and recognising organisations who excel in their
efforts to create a working environment where their people feel heard, are
highly connected and inspired to do their best every day. Best Employers are creating
the workplace of the future through their high employee engagement levels,
strong organisational agility, engaging leadership and exceptional talent
focus. We congratulate all of our Best Employers in Singapore who have achieved
this recognition."

Best Employers are awarded based on their ability
to exceed others in four measurable 'people factors' that are crucial if organisations
want to excel: employee engagement, organisational agility, engaging leadership
and talent focus. Participating organisations work with Kincentric's team of
experts to understand the views and perceptions of their employee population.
Using Kincentric's state-of-the-art technology platforms, knowledge and
consulting experience, employee opinions on these factors are analysed and
compared to applicable benchmarks in Kincentric's robust database to determine
which organisations come out on top.

For 20 years, the Best Employers certification has
recognised leading employers across the world, backed by over 50 years of
employee research and a global database of over 15 million employees. To find
