India's Best NGOs to Work ForTM

A list of India’s Best Workplaces in the NGOs sector for the year 2021, recognizing organizations that have created a High-Trust, High-Performance CultureTM for their employees. Registrations open for 2022 study.​


All organizations that nominate themselves for India’s Best NGOs to Work ForTM undergo a rigorous assessment. This year 38 NGOs applied for this Study. As part of this assessment, all organizations were evaluated through two lenses. The first lens measures the quality of employee experience through our globally validated survey instrument known as Trust Index©. The survey helps in seeking anonymous feedback from employees and carries 2/3rd weightage. The second lens is called the Culture Audit© – a proprietary tool from the Institute that evaluates the quality of people practices in an organization, covering the entire employee lifecycle. This carries 1/3rd weightage. The Institute undertakes a robust validation process on the data gathered through the assessment process. The cumulative score of Trust Index© and Culture Audit© determines an organization’s inclusion in India’s Best NGOs to Work ForTM. No individual or jury has a say in who makes it to the Top 10 list – only employee feedback and quality of people practice determines if an organization is a great workplace.

The list is published in alphabetical order.

Great Place to Work® funds this study and shares a detailed report on the feedback shared by employees with all participating NGOs.

In line with our vision of making India a Great Place to Work FOR ALL, we are now embarking on an extensive study of the not-for-profit sector under the aegis of the Work with Dignity Foundation.
