"A Great Place to Work® is one where:
you trust the people you work for,
have pride in what you do,
and enjoy the people you work with."
Robert Levering, Co-Founder, Great Place to Work
Our model defines the Employee Perspective of a Great Workplace as one where you trust the people you work for, you have pride in the work you do, and you enjoy the people you work with. This covers the three primary relationships that each and every employee has in their workplace - your relationship with management (fostered through Credibility, Respect, & Fairness), your sentiment to your job or role (manifested as Pride), and how you feel about your colleagues (in the form of Camaraderie).
Organisations who take this model seriously, and think about how they can authentically apply it to every interaction they have with their employees, have discovered just how transformative the process can be. They report increased productivity, collaboration, engagement, and an improved sense of enthusiasm around their workplace.
Our model defines the Manager Perspective of a Great Workplace as one where you can achieve your organisational objectives, in a group of people who are able to give their personal best, while working together as a team or family.
