This year, more than 3,250 applications from across the country were scrutinized by Mediacorp editors in eight areas: (1) physical workplace; (2) work atmosphere and social; (3) health, financial and family benefits; (4) vacation and time off; (5) employee communications; (6) performance management; (7) training and skills development; and (8) community involvement.
