What are the criteria for a "Great Place to Work"?
All employees and managers have their own needs and ideas about what a good workplace is. The Great Place to Work® Institute defines a work environment in which employees
- trust those they work for,
- take pride in what they do,
- and enjoy working together as a team.
As the employees as well as the management of SEC Consult Austria and SEC Consult Germany were surveyed, the results present a holistic picture of the company. The full survey was addressed to the entire team (Trust Index©) and to the management team (Culture Audit©) of both countries.
The Trust Index© asks about the individually perceived situation at the workplace and how it fits into the team, while in the Culture Audit© management provides information about its concepts, measures and programs in the area of human resources.
The questionnaire offered the following response options: "almost completely agree" / "mostly agree" / "partly agree" / "mostly disagree" / "almost disagree". It comprised a considerable 65 items and the questionnaire was only evaluated if at least five of them were answered. The participation rate achieved of 85% in Austria and even 90% in Germany therefore proves how great the interest of all those involved is in evaluating the workplace situation.
