Great Place to Work® aims to make the process of participating in our best companies program as simple and straightforward as possible. There are 5 basic steps:
Take a minute to register for a Best Companies list competition and we will follow up with you to provide more detailed information to assist you through the process. You can find out more about eligibility requirements and deadlines for participation on this site, or our staff would be happy to walk you through the process personally after you register.
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 programs 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 analyse the data after your employees have completed the survey and you have submitted information about your programs and policies. We look at the results and judge them according to our global, standardized 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 analysed, we will rank a portion of those that apply in one of our our Best Companies 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 Company 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 Companies-specific executive events, conferences, and presentations.
