"A Great Place to Work® is where you trust those you work for, take pride in what you do and enjoy working with others." - as Robert Levering, co-founder of Great Place to Work® once said. The essence of a Great Place to Work® is trust. Only where employees trust their leaders and leaders trust their employees can the foundation for a Great Place to Work® be laid. We have developed an evidence-based methodology that explains how trust, values, leadership qualities and maximizing the potential of all employees increases the innovation and value creation of organizations. Based on this methodology we certify companies as Great Place to Work®.
In order to be certified as a Great Place to Work®, you need the employee survey, the Trust Index®, and the management survey, the Culture Audit. If organizations meet 70% of the minimum criteria, they receive the Great Place to Work® certification, which is valid for one year. The certification is carried out on a monthly basis so that the certification can be communicated promptly after the presentation of the results.
The categories for the "Best Workplaces in Switzerland" award are small companies with 20 to 49 employees, medium-sized companies with 50 to 249 employees and large companies with more than 250 employees. In addition, organizations from the health and social services sector are separately awarded among the "Best Workplaces in Switzerland".
With the Great Place to Work® certification, organizations increase their attractiveness as an employer both internally and externally. They show existing employees what they have in their employer. At the same time, Great Place to Work® certified organizations can position themselves in the market as top employers.
Through the independent assessment of external experts, companies receive a situation analysis of their workplace culture compared to similarly sized organizations in the same industry. This enables our easy-to-understand analysis to highlight the main areas of development and an efficient way to optimize.
On the one hand, the certification helps to shape further measures for the further development of the workplace culture. Moreover, our research shows that Great Place to Work® certified organizations have stock gains twice to three times as high as average companies. A trust-based workplace culture increases value creation and strengthens innovation.
Whoever is awarded the Great Place to Work® certificate may and should present themselves as an excellent organization! A Great Place to Work® values its employees and an excellent workplace culture - this also increases customer attention and loyalty. We offer strong support in communicating the certification and help building a strong employer brand.
