Best Workplaces in Taiwan™️ 2021 Awards Ceremony



As we navigate the ever-changing landscape created by the global pandemic, it is important for us to take time out to celebrate every once in a while. At the Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ event we will be celebrating the continued support that organizations have been giving to their employees, whether it is from the office, from home, or a hybrid of both.

The changes created by such a global event can have a huge impact on our well-being – both physically and mentally. But great companies will look after their employees and respond to these changes in a proactive manner.

Our event theme this year is “Well-Being”. During the event, we will share how our award-winning companies look after their employees during this prolonged coronavirus pandemic. Companies with better employee well-being programs and practices are more likely to enjoy better productivity from their team, gain trust and maintain high levels of employee engagement.

Lockdown poses unique challenges, but our awardees have shown us that they’ve been listening and supporting their employees no matter what.

Join us this year to find out which companies are the Best Workplaces in Taiwan™ and to learn from industry leaders how they have been helping their employees during these stressful times.

Date: 24th August, 2021

Time: 3pm – 4pm
