Great Place to Work® Middle East reveals the ‘World Best Workplaces™

Gulf Cooperation Council, 2023

On November 16th 2023, Great Place to Work® - a global research, training and consultancy firm that recognizes the Best Workplaces™ in over 60 countries worldwide - has revealed the World Best Workplaces™ List for the year 2023’. This year, we have identified the top 25 companies that, according to their employees, offer the best experience for workers of all backgrounds, job types, and geographic locations. More than 6.2 million survey responses were analyzed, representing the experiences of 18 million workers around the world.

By participating in the World Best Workplaces™ List for the first time, Oman and Bahrain have joined the ranks of Qatar and Kuwait, marking a significant milestone for these nations. Their inclusion serves as a testament to their determination in driving positive change, fostering economic growth and enhancing the lives of the citizens.

This year’s list was more competitive than ever, with a 28% increase in companies participating in the global survey from 2022, and a 40% increase in the number of employee surveys received.

The 25 winning companies had a larger percentage of workers reporting fair pay (75%), healthy work-life balance support (84%), and a voice in decisions that affected their lives (81%), compared to a typical global workplace.

At winning companies, 88% of employees would recommend their employer to friends and family — 34 percentage points higher than the global average of 54%.

Commenting on this year’s World Best Workplaces™ List, Jules Youssef, Managing Director of Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain, Great Place to Work® Middle East, said: We are immensely proud to see both Bahrain and Oman represented on the World Best Workplaces™ List. This inclusion not only showcases the business potential and talent within these countries, but also highlights the collective efforts invested in cultivating a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. Congratulations to all winners!”.
