BEST TECH COMPANY TO WORK FOR AWARD WINNER 2019
Other finalists include HP, Microsoft, Singtel & ShopBack  

Employees at home-grown fintech firm M-DAQ, which develops cross-border payment solutions, are treated as family, to the point that those who leave for other jobs are considered to be taking “sabbaticals”. The firm employs 55 people.
“We keep their employee numbers when they quit, telling them they’re welcome back at any time. And if they return, we give them our Boomerang Award,” said chief executive Richard Koh.  

“When we reach out to those who have left, they’re often very happy to help us because there’s this strong loyalty that lasted beyond the term of employment.”
