Best Workplaces™ Lists

Great Place to Work® Institute’s research and recognise leading workplaces in more than 90 countries worldwide. Based on data representing over 10 million employees, these best companies competitions form the world’s largest and most respected study of workplace excellence and people management practices.

Great Place to Work®‘s methodology is recognised as rigorous and objective, setting the standard for defining great workplaces for business, academia and government use. The findings are published annually in prestigious media channels across the globe, such as FortuneHandesblatt, and Le Figaro Économie. They represent the definitive employer-of-choice and workplace quality recognition any company can receive.

The unparalleled insight into workplace culture gained through this study enables us to support you in your efforts to develop your workplace, thus setting your business apart from your competitors. That’s why our best companies lists are much more than publicity and rankings. The reports and feedback you get are intended to provide practical knowledge and tools to help you truly transform your workplace.

We distribute our Trust Index© employee survey either on-line or in paper format.  (Note that all employee surveys are completely anonymous.)  You also submit information about your organisation’s programmes and policies through our Culture Audit©. Two-thirds of your results are based on the Trust Index employee survey and one-third on the Culture Audit management questionnaire.

Our best companies evaluators analyze the data after your employees have completed the survey and you have submitted information about your programmes and policies.  We look at the results and judge them according to our global, standardised Great Place to Work® Model©.

Most organisations decide to use the benchmarks, analysis and survey results generated through this assessment process to measure the health and success of their workplace and pinpoint potential activities that will help them improve their culture and business results.  The Trust Index Feedback Report and other survey results can be provided within weeks of the survey closing.

Once an organisation’s results have been analyzed, we will short list a portion of those that apply in one of our our Best Workplaces™ lists. Not all applicants find themselves on the list, but all organisations have access to the Feedback Report and other survey results.  Successful organisations will be notified if they are recognised as a Best Workplaces™ and their companies will be recognised by that country’s media partner. In many countries, recognition also is available through prestigious gala awards ceremonies and through Best Workplaces™ specific executive events, conferences, and presentations.Workplaces™
