Great Place to Work® recognized Fcode Labs (www.fcodelabs.com) as one of the best workplaces in Asia. According to them, Fcode Labs ranked 35th on the list of best companies to work for in Asia in the small and medium-sized businesses category. Having become one of the top workplaces in Sri Lanka for 2022 a few months ago, Fcode Labs is certainly thrilled to extend the title further. Not every company gets to do that, and as one that started from scratch just over three years ago, Fcode Labs couldn’t be happier.
It is challenging enough to be recognized as one of the best workplaces in Sri Lanka, much less in all of Asia. GPTW ranking 2022 identifies workplaces where employee satisfaction is as valued as customer satisfaction. The ranking is mainly based on employee opinions. That says a lot about how these workplaces are successful in providing great services all while maintaining a healthy work culture. Fcode Labs is no different. As one of the 100 best companies to work for in Asia, Fcode Labs is constantly looking for ways to enrich employee experiences in the workplace.
Here are some of the main reasons why Fcode Labs’ Great Place to Work® 2022 title is truly well-deserved. Statistics prove that well-paid employees are happier at work and more satisfied with the roles they play in a work environment. For Sri Lankans, extra financial help could not come at a better time. Fcode Labs believe that the work of their employees should in no way be undermined during crisis situations. Pegging all their salaries to the dollar is one way we make sure their staff receives above-average salaries for their hard work.
The global switch to online working made it a challenge for software companies in Sri Lanka to make it to the list of best workplaces 2022. Fcode Labs adapted to the changes and made the shift to hybrid working. This has helped them provide their employees the freedom to work flexibly and without stress while keeping the spirits up. Being a team, it is very important to stay updated and consistent with work. Giving their team the option to work flexibly was definitely a key factor in becoming one of the top workplaces in Asia.
Apart from being a Great Place to Work®, Fcode Labs is also a welcoming and fun place to work. In this one big family, everyone’s opinions, needs and concerns are valid. They also make sure to keep the cheer going by organizing many team-building activities in the office and online. Events like sports tournaments and company trips help strengthen team relationships and boost employee motivation. Building great software is only a fraction of what they do as a company. Positive company culture and good work values define who they are as a workplace; one of the 100 best in Asia too, at that.
The highlight of this achievement was when the Fcode Labs team attended the Great Place to Work Awards Gala 2022, held at Hilton Colombo last week. After an evening of sharing business insights and acknowledging companies for their amazing work cultures, their team walked home with a magnificent token of appreciation. They have made it this far, but they believe the best is yet to come.
