Innovative culture, meaningful work makes SAS a Best Multinational Workplace in Asia

Analytics leader SAS has been recognized as one of Asia’s 25 Best Multinational Workplaces by Great Place to Work®. Building on a culture of innovation, creativity and work/life balance, SAS pairs a world-class work environment with meaningful work so employees feel inspired and energized. 

In 2019, SAS Research and Development (India) Pvt Ltd along with SAS Institute Japan Ltd, SAS Institute India Pvt Ltd and SAS Institute Saudi Arabia were identified to be amongst the 25 Best Multinational Workplaces in Asia.    

“Engaged and inspired employees ultimately result in happy customers and strengthen the foundation of our business,” said SAS CEO Jim Goodnight. “It’s an honor that this global commitment to our employees continues to be recognized, especially in the high-growth region of Asia, which holds great importance to SAS.”

“People’s trust in the leadership at SAS and in each other is high as a result of our unflagging efforts to create a great workplace. With trust being high, collaboration is easy and the pace at which the organization works is sped up thus delivering high-quality products more efficiently. That, in turn, generates pride and camaraderie, fuelling a virtuous cycle.

It takes a village to raise a child. And it takes an entire organization’s involvement to create a great workplace. In my opinion, ensuring that everybody understands the purpose and is on board the journey is a fundamental and key step to creating a great workplace”,said Moti Thadani, Head of Research and Development, India.

“A great place to work is one in which employees – no matter who they are and what they do for the organization – are having a consistently positive experience of trusting their leaders, enjoying the people they work with, and having pride in what they do,” said Michael Bush, CEO at Great Place to Work. “It is an honor for SAS to be recognized by their employees as an organization that fosters respect, trust and fairness.”
