What is a Great Place To Work certification?
The Great Place To Work certification is a national recognition offered to companies that demonstrate exceptional organizational culture.
A Great Place To Work certified company is one where trust prevails at all levels of management. Employees have a sense of pride in the organization and in their own achievements, enjoy the work environment and the people they work with.
In other words, it’s a great place to work!
Certification is awarded based not on an organization’s employee benefits, but rather how the employees feel about working there.
How does the certification process work?
Companies must follow a 3-step certification process.
1. Poll the employees :
The purpose of the “Trust Index” survey is to assess employees’ level of well-being and to better understand their experience of working at Roy. Our employees had 2 weeks to answer 60 confidential questions.
2. Write a Culture Brief :
We then filled out the Culture Brief. This is a questionnaire in which we explained our best practices as an employer brand for making the workplace conducive to our people’s well-being and development.
3. Assessment of the business and certification :
After submitting all requested documentation, the experts at Great Place To Work assessed our application to determine whether our organizational culture met the high standards certification requires. We had to achieve a positive score of at least 70% on the Trust Index survey.
