with great workplaces around the
world for over 30 years.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on building, sustaining, and recognizing high-trust, high-performing workplace cultures. We have crafted our perspective by learning from great leaders, surveying millions of employees, and examining thousands of the best workplaces around the globe. We thrive on sharing the insights we’ve gleaned from our work with companies of all industries and sizes in order to help organizations around the world build, sustain and scale their great culture.

The Great Place to Work® Trust Model© is built on 30 years of research and data collected through our Trust Index© Employee Survey, which is taken annually by millions of employees worldwide.

In the United States, Great Place to Work® produces the annual Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list and over a dozen other Best Workplaces lists in partnership with Fortune including the Best Workplaces for Millennials, Women, Diversity, Small and Medium Companies, as well as for many different industries.

Great Place to Work® also provides executive advisory and culture consulting services to businesses, non-profits, and government agencies in over 40 countries across six continents.

By giving all companies the ability to assess themselves using the most reliable and comprehensive definition of a great workplace, we are able to serve our mission to build a better society by creating great workplaces for all. Today, we’re using our decades of data to create a new global standard for what people can expect from their work experience.

Better workplace, better performance.

Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer and patient satisfaction than their peers. What’s more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience, and efficiency.

Whether via the Great Place to Work® Certification Program and Lists, our world-renowned Trust Index© Employee Survey, or through our comprehensive suite of High-Trust Culture Consulting services, the companies we work with understand the firm link between a positive employee experience and strong business performance.
