Continues regional expansion with a focus on employees

Illumina, Inc., today announced, for the second consecutive year, Illumina is honored as one of Singapore’s Best Employers in a survey sponsored by The Straits Times and the marketing firm Statista. Illumina was second in Health Care and Equipment Services and placed 27th on the overall list. Conducted in late 2020, the survey queried around 9,000 people employed in all different industries, giving them the opportunity to express their support for 1,700 local companies with more than 200 employees.

“It is heartwarming to be recognized once again as one of Singapore’s Best Employers,” says Derric Lee, Vice President and General Manager of Illumina Singapore. “This award means a great deal and gives recognition for our efforts to create a conducive, inclusive and rewarding environment for employees at any level.”

The survey results are based on employee perceptions from companies in the region. Respondents were asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend or family member, and if they would make the same recommendation for other companies.

Headquartered in San Diego, California, Illumina’s first Singapore facility opened in 2008 with ten employees and a 38,000 square foot facility. Today, Illumina Singapore has increased the number of employees to more than 1,300 and grown to three buildings, occupying ten times the original space—now totaling 385,000 square feet. The momentum continues with an additional facility for research and development which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2022.

“We plan to create a complete ecosystem for employees to develop, grow and thrive,” says Lee. “This ethos means focusing on every aspect of an employee’s time with the company from the first moment they walk in the door. We are always assessing the totality of the workplace experience, including onboarding, office ambience, maintaining an open and collaborative culture, training and development, and care and support. Our goal is to provide employees with the best possible end-to-end experience when they work for Illumina.”
