Malaysian digital media company SAYS has made the WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces alongside Zappos, AIESEC International and WD-40. The only other Malaysian company to have made it to the list is Mindvalley.
WorldBlu determines the list by conducting the WorldBlu Design Assessment, a survey completed by employees of a company. The survey evaluates a company’s practice of the WorldBlu 10 Principles of Organisational Democracy.
To be listed, an organisation has to achieve an overall combined score of 3.5 / 5 or higher. Despite an increase in workforce to over 30 employees, SAYS has managed to improve its 2013 score of 3.9 to 4.1 this year.
“Gone are the days of stifling an employee’s creative potential in fear of chaos and disturbance. We believe the workplace is one of the best places to cultivate creativity in this day and age,” says Sam Wee, General Manager at SAYS.
“SAYS chooses to practice processes that are anchored on this belief. Everyone here deserves a workplace that liberates their creative minds… This freedom-centered workplace design has been the source of happiness and success at SAYS,” he says.
