HONG KONG, June 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore), maker of thousands of innovative products, was once again named one of the 'Best Companies to Work For®' at the 2017 Great Place to Work® awards ceremony in Hong Kong.

This marks the company's second consecutive year to receive this recognition from the Great Place to Work® Institute, one of the leading global research and consulting firms on workplace culture. Introduced to Hong Kong just last year, the rankings are based on results of employee surveys looking at workplace excellence, management and the role of trust in the workplace culture.

"We are very honored to be placed on this annual list once again. When Gore came to Hong Kong more than 30 years ago, we were determined to bring with us our distinctive company culture, one that harnesses our Associates' diverse talents and perspectives to achieve greater success," said Stevy Yao, Gore's Asia Pacific leader.  "We pride ourselves as an enterprise with a distinctive team-based culture that encourages innovative spirits, inspires collaborative work and nurtures our talents. We are happy to see that three decades later, Gore continues to realize the vision of our founders, and today, is again among the Best Companies to Work For ® in Hong Kong."

Associates, as Gore refers to its employees, are encouraged to play an active role in charting their career paths and helping their fellow Associates grow. Sponsors and leaders – not bosses – guide Associates in maximizing their talents and interests to meet business needs.

Bob Fisher, Gore's Asia Pacific and Japan leader added, "At Gore, we place a great deal of value in the diverse capabilities and talent our Associates bring to the enterprise. We believe in providing a work environment that fosters personal initiative, creativity and hands-on innovation so that Associates can perform at their best. Gore's unique perspective on workplace culture and talent development is the backbone to the enterprise's business results and successes in Hong Kong and around the world. "

Gore is regularly recognized globally on best workplace lists. In March of this year, Gore marked its 20th year on the U.S. 100 Best Companies to Work For® list, published annually in Fortune magazine. This makes the enterprise one of a select few Great Place to Work Legends™ that have appeared in every edition of the rankings since the list began in 1998.

Gore has facilities and offices located in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taiwan, and is primed to grow in Greater China.
