Nieuwegein, 29 September 2021 - Great Place to Work Nederland examines the degree of trust, pride and pleasure within organisations. Based on the results of the employee survey and the analysis of the organisational culture, it is assessed whether the criteria for good employment practices have been met. Only organisations that achieve the required scores on both components may immediately bear the title Great Place to Work Certified.
“The past year and a half has been a challenging period for everyone, both professionally as well as on a personal level. I am therefore very proud that we can again call ourselves a "Great Place to Work" during this period in which every team member has worked from home a full 100%. I am very happy that we are certified for the second year in a row! The challenge we now face together is defining a new normal. A new balance between working from home, working in the office and on location with customers, where we hold on to our company culture and values.", says Dennis Montanje, Managing Director Softline Solutions Northern Europe.
René Brouwers, director of Great Place to Work Netherlands: "Being a good employer is the way to organisational success - that is the belief of Great Place to Work Netherlands. Organisations that have a culture of trust, pride and pleasure perform better. To excel in this area is an achievement, an achievement to be proud of and an achievement that deserves attention.” Brouwers about the research: "We ask employees' opinions on five values: credibility, respect, honesty, pride and companionship. Those values are linked to performance. We apply this approach worldwide in 60 countries at more than 7,000 organisations.”
