Fostering a Landscape of Collaboration and Innovation

The dynamic tapestry of today’s business world places collaboration and innovation at its heart. These aren’t mere corporate trends but pivotal forces that drive organizations forward. When embraced, they open pathways to endless possibilities and sustainable success. Let’s dive into creating an ecosystem that champions these values:

Cultivate Psychological Safety:

For innovation to truly take root, individuals need a space where their voices echo freely, without apprehension. This safe harbor, where ideas can be shared without the weight of judgment or fear, is where creative minds flourish.

Champion Diversity of Thought:

A mosaic of perspectives offers a playground for innovation. By weaving together people with different experiences, skills, and viewpoints, an organization can unearth rich, varied, and profound insights.

Equip with the Right Tools:

Seamless collaboration hinges on having the right resources at one’s fingertips. Modern collaborative tools, interactive spaces, and efficient communication channels can supercharge teamwork and idea exchange.

Celebrate the Spirit of Teamwork:

A culture that appreciates and acknowledges collaborative efforts ignites enthusiasm. By spotlighting those who embody teamwork and contribute groundbreaking ideas, others are inspired to join the collaborative journey.

Break Down Walls with Cross-Functional Teams:

Bridging gaps between departments can spark innovative solutions. When diverse functions intermingle, such as finance collaborating with design or sales brainstorming with tech, the resultant synergy can be nothing short of revolutionary.

Advocate for Lifelong Learning:

To stay ahead, one must continuously evolve. Encourage teams to delve into new learning opportunities, be it through courses, workshops, or seminars. New knowledge invariably seeds innovation.

Carve Out Time for Creativity:

Allocating dedicated periods for unfettered brainstorming can birth brilliant concepts. Some of the most iconic products have their roots in such designated creative times.

Embrace External Partnerships:

Innovation often flourishes at the intersection of internal expertise and external insights. Collaborating with academia, industry experts, or even receptive customers can offer a fresh lens through which challenges can be viewed.

Perceive Failure as a Stepping Stone:

Innovation is as much about the missteps as it is about the triumphs. Embracing failures as lessons rather than setbacks creates a resilient culture where risks are seen as opportunities for growth.

In essence, the journey of collaboration and innovation is perpetual and ever evolving. It’s less about the destination and more about cultivating an organizational ethos where these principles thrive. With such a foundation, businesses are not only equipped to adapt but poised to lead in an ever-shifting marketplace.

Great Place To Work identifies Best Workplaces in Asia™ by surveying 2.1 million employees in Asia and the Middle East about the key factors that create great workplaces for all and analyzing company workplace programs impacting 5.9 million employees in the region.

To be considered, companies must first be identified as outstanding in their local region by appearing on one or more of our Best Workplaces lists in Bahrain, Greater China (including China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), India, Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Oman, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, UAE, Vietnam during 2022 or early 2023.

Companies rank in three size categories: Small and Medium (10-499 employees); Large (500+); and Multinational. Multinational organizations are also assessed on their efforts to create great workplaces across multiple countries in the region. They must appear on at least two national lists in Asia and the Middle East and have at least 1,000 employees worldwide with at least 40% (or 5,000+) of those employees located outside the headquarters country.

To determine the 2022 Vietnam Best Workplaces™, Great Place To Work®️ analyzed confidential survey feedback representing nearly 20,000 employees across different industries in Vietnam. Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place To Work For All™️.

85% of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place To Work analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical in their industry. The remaining 15% of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.

To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place To Work-Certified™ standard. To ensure survey results truly represent all employees, Great Place To Work requires that Trust Index©️ survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better. We review any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results. 

Companies with 10-99 people were considered for the Small category, companies with 100-999 people were considered for the Medium category and companies with 1000+ people were considered for the Large category.
