Best Companies to Work For

Great Place to Work is one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the company of the people they work with.

"India's Best Companies to Work for" Study is conducted by The Economic Times and Great Place to Work Institute, India (greatplacetowork.in). Around 600 organizations registered for 2012 study, about a hundred more than last year.

The Great Place to Work framework is based on over 27 years of research of the best workplaces across the globe from employees' point of view.

The key trends in the 2012 study suggest that overall employee perception of their workplace culture has not changed significantly from 2011. While individual companies may have done well or poorly in building trust with their employees, the workplace culture in India Inc., as perceived by their people, remains the same.

Positive perceptions about their workplace culture continues to be high for senior management category compared to supervisory staff, with 7% less supervisory staff giving positive feedback about their workplace culture.

The study reveals that 75% of employees are below 35 years of age. While they are the majority in most organisations, their views about the workplace culture are significantly less positive than employees over 45 years in age. Only 20% of employees, on an average, have worked in the same organisation for more than five years. There is a slow but gradual improvement in employee perception as one stays longer in an organisation.

20% of the respondents in the survey across all organisations were women, broadly indicating the percentage of women in the organised workforce. There is no significant difference in the response of men and women to the survey statement. Significantly, lower employee size does not necessarily mean higher employee perceptions.
