The list publication comes amid the COVID-19 crisis, which has upended daily life and business operations throughout Europe. Organisations on the list are leading the way amid the pandemic, demonstrating care for their employees, their customers and their communities during this difficult time.
"The COVID-19 pandemic highlights how critical it is for organisations to establish great workplaces for all employees prior to crises," said Michael C. Bush, Global CEO of Great Place to Work. "The trust, care and agility that are the bedrock of Europe's best workplaces help these organisations, their people and their communities survive and even thrive during periods of significant economic and personal stress."
