India’s Best Companies to Work For – 2018 : Special Categories

About the Study

Every year, more than 10,000 organisations from over 58 countries partner with Great Place to Work® Institute for assessment, benchmarking and planning actions to strengthen their workplace culture.  In India, more than 600 organisations applied to Great Place to Work® Institute to undertake the assessment this year, making it the largest Study in the space of Workplace Recognition. The Institute has an objective methodology of assessing workplace culture, that has been adopted by thousands of organisations, globally. It primarily uses 2 lenses to evaluate and identify the best cultures. 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. The second lens is called Culture Audit©, which is a proprietary tool of the Institute that evaluates the people practices of an organisation, covering the entire employee life-cycle. Using these two lenses, Great Place to Work® Institute has recognised the 100 best workplaces  as ‘India’s Best Companies To Work For- 2018’ from organisations having an employee strength of more than 500. The Economic Times and Great Place to Work® Institute have been publishing the list of ‘India’s Best Companies To Work For’ jointly every year since 2007. Participating organizations also had the opportunity to nominate themselves for additional Special Categories  as part of the Study. We are proud to share the winners below.
