Introduction

Surekha Ragavan

Editor, PRWeek Asia
Editor, Campaign Asia-Pacific

PRWeek Asia and Campaign Asia-Pacific are excited to launch Best Places to Work in the APAC region, an exciting new opportunity for APAC agencies and organisations to celebrate their talent and workplace initiatives.

The aim of Best Places to Work is to help agencies and brands in-house comms team leaders develop the best possible working environments for their staff while recognising outstanding workplaces and initiatives. Especially at a time where healthy employment practices and compassionate workplace environments are more important than ever, we want to recognise the good work that companies have displayed in these areas.

Entries will be judged in a rigorous two-stage process, ensuring credibility and industry-standard criteria. Some categories that we’ll be exploring this year are diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI), employee support, and learning and development. We’ve also added three new categories—including one that celebrates outstanding teams—so we encourage you to explore those too.

With that, we are excited to have you nominate your workplaces and teams that have shone in the last 12 months. We hope you’ll join us in demonstrating that a sustainable workplace isn’t solely reliant on business outcomes, but also on strong, supportive, and dynamic professional relationships and initiatives.

We look forward to receiving your entries. All the best!

2022 Judges

An independent jury consisting of leading client marketers, agency strategists and other industry experts will form the jury panel.

At all voting stages, the judges are prevented from voting for entries submitted by their own agency in their market/country. The decision of the jury on all matters relating to the awarding prizes will be final and binding. Great care is taken in selecting a judging panel comprising the right balance of specialist knowledge, experience and objectivity. Strict guidelines, designed to eliminate vested interest or breaches of rules of entry, will be followed.
