This week Cisco was ranked number two overall among 2020 Singapore Best Workplaces™, it was at a virtual awards ceremony attended by Minister for Manpower Josephine Teo with a message by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat.
The award is given by Great Place to Work®, a global authority on workplace culture, which recognizes organizations with the most exceptional workplace culture practices. At the end of a challenging year characterized by business disruptions and remote operations, Great Place to Work® recognized Cisco's open and transparent work culture for instilling exceptional trust among its employees.
The rapid shift in the way businesses worked, brought about by the pandemic, has required massive deployments of innovative enterprise technology to enable secure remote working. During this difficult time, Cisco quickly moved its entire workforce to remote working to keep them safe, while weekly video check-ins helped people stay connected and allowed leaders, including CEO Chuck Robbins, to listen and respond to employees' questions and understand their concerns.
Andy Lee, Managing Director, Singapore, Cisco. said …."2020 was a challenging year for both businesses and their employees. Business continuity was the main priority and we quickly realized this can only be achieved by taking care of our employees. As a technology leader, our people worked extra hard in 2020 to support our customers and partners implement remote operations at speed and at scale. I would like to thank everyone at Cisco Singapore for their commitment and resilience,"
Building a Conscious Culture
At Cisco, Conscious Culture is a way of life where employees are aware of the environment that they are part of, feel accountable, empowered and actively contribute to a diverse and inclusive culture where everyone feels safe and can thrive.
Lekha George, Head of People and Communities, ASEAN and Korea, Cisco said: "We are honored and proud to be ranked second among Singapore Best Workplaces™. This recognition is made possible through the strength of our culture at Cisco and the progress that we have made to empower our teams, instill trust, passion, and a strong sense of belonging even while we were working remotely during the year. Our emphasis on nurturing a Conscious Culture, that creates a shared sense of accountability, pride and purpose for the workplace, has been a critical enabler."
