Employees have made their voices heard about the companies they work for. The Great Place to Work® Institute reached 48,000 employees with its survey, and tonight announced the 20 Best Workplaces™ Belgium at the Docks Dome Event Hall in Brussels. 24 organisations also received a ‘Great Place to Work®’ certificate in recognition of their good employment practices.
Every year, we spend an average of 1576 hours at work. How we work together and get on with our colleagues goes a long way towards determining our experience at work. Good workplaces are organisations in which people trust the management, are proud of their job and enjoy their work. The survey is conducted annually by the Great Place to Work® Institute in collaboration with Vlerick Business School and media partner Jobat / Mark Magazine.
Great Place to Work® looks at companies through two lenses. The Trust Index© survey (employee survey) assesses the extent to which employees experience trust, pride and camaraderie in their company. In addition, the Culture Audit© questionnaire (HR survey) evaluates the employment policies of the organisations. A unique feature of this approach is the fact that the evaluation by the employees takes precedence. Two-thirds of the final score is determined by the results of the company’s own employees.

Great Place to Work® recognises these organisations for their good employment practices and people-oriented organisational culture.

This year, there are 9 more certified companies than in 2018.
