Great Place to Work® Institute’s methodology is recognized as rigorous and objective and is considered as the Gold Standard for defining great workplaces across businesses, academia and government organizations. All theorganizations underwent a rigorous assessment where they were studied through two lenses. The first lens measures the quality of employee experience through a 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 Culture Audit©, which is a proprietary tool of the Institute that evaluates the quality of people practices of an organization, covering the entire employee life-cycle. 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 Workplaces in Retail 2020.

No individual or jury has a say in who makes it to the list – only employee feedback and quality of people practices determine if a company is a Great Workplace in the Retail Sector. The participating organisation benefited from the Great Place to Work®Research and Actionable Insights.
