“Our terrific achievements are directly related to our staff’s talents and wellbeing,” said Professor Thomas Coffman, Dean of Duke-NUS, in an interview published with the ranking. “So, we’ll always have a relentless focus on that, moving forward.”

Duke-NUS ranked 106th overall and sixth in the education category, the highest ranking achieved by a local university. Among the measures that have contributed to the School’s strong showing are its emphasis on mental and emotional wellbeing, enhanced learning and development pathways, overarching staff recognition framework and flexi-work policies.

Ms Karen Chang, Senior Vice-Dean and Group Director of the Office of Corporate Services, said: “Our people are our greatest asset, and we keep them engaged by developing clear strategies that include workforce priorities such as talent development, recognition, wellness and work environment.”
