In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic posed challenges for societies across the world. It unleashed a new era of change for companies worldwide, whose survival and growth could influence the lives of millions of employees and their families.

David Plink, CEO of Top Employers Institute, remarked: "In addition to the adverse impacts on global health systems and economies, businesses faced the significant hurdle of supporting their people in adapting to new ways of work. In our research, we were glad to see that Top Employers put their employees first from the outset of the global health crisis. They responded and adapted quickly to the ever-changing situation."

He added that despite the challenges, it was business as usual and Top Employers were held to the same high standards as with every previous year.

"We also saw great opportunities and positive changes, including increased focus on well-being, a greater need work-life balance, and a reduction in time spent commuting," said Plink.
