Great Place to Work, the global authority in workplace culture and the gold standard of recognition as well as the data scientist behind the annual Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For, released its list of the 25 Best Workplaces in the Philippines for 2022.
This year’s list features more companies than in 2020 and 2021, with organizations categorized under small, medium, and large, depending on the number of employees.
“We are delighted that more companies are getting certified as great places to work. This shows that more Philippine companies and their leaders are committed to building high-trust workplace cultures. We believe that many others will join as they get inspired by the Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM companies who are leading the way in putting their people first and enjoying the many benefits of doing so,” said Antoinette Talosig, managing partner of Great Place to Work Philippines and principal consultant of Great Place to Work ASEAN.
For over 30 years, business leaders, research institutions, and the public worldwide have relied on the Great Place to Work Trust Model as the definitive standard of what it means to be a great workplace.
The Trust Model© serves as the foundation of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which analyzes participating employees’ experiences through five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
Using this lens, the prestigious global consultancy firm has proven that the definition of a great workplace is one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
The 2022 rankings represent the workplace experiences of over 130,000 employees in the Philippines.

“As confirmed by numerous studies, satisfied workers result in greater productivity. And greater productivity means faster growth for our industries and heightened recovery for the economy. It is my sincere hope that more business groups will follow the lead of the top 25 best workplaces in the Philippines,” said Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez.
“We look forward to the day when every sector of our economy will soon be populated by great workplaces, where leaders empower their workforce to reach their full human potential as part of their organization,” he added.
Talosig explained why more Philippine companies are getting certified as great workplaces: “For the past two years, we have weathered numerous challenges in the country, chief of which is the COVID-19 pandemic. We also have increasing rates of unemployment and underemployment, poor working conditions and pressing concerns around employees’ holistic well-being and mental health. What we see in 2022 is that more companies will commit themselves to be Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM to create a supportive work environment for their employees.”
“In 2022, we know what’s important—we must take care of each other in terms of physical, mental, and financial health. We need to be concerned about each working person, not only as individuals but also in terms of their family and community. It’s up to the leaders to ensure that we treat people in a respectful, caring, honest, fair, and equitable way. So, they know we care about them, not just as an employee, but also as a person,” said Michael Bush, global CEO of Great Place to Work.
