Join the thousands of companies that use the Trust Index© Survey annually, and benchmark your company's culture against the global standard of a great workplace. Comprehensive and easy-to-use, the Trust Index© Survey enables you to analyze your employees' perceptions of the workplace, compare results to key benchmarks, and receive custom recommendations.
Trust Index© Survey
Our decades of research have revealed that a great workplace is one in which employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with. The Trust Index© survey uses qualitative and quantitative data to measure the quality of each of these components of the employee experience and equips you with accurate, in-depth views of the current state of your company’s culture from employees across the organization.
Easy to customize and implement, the Trust Index© allows you to quickly compare internal results between work groups, locations, and other demographics, as well as benchmark yourself against the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®, Best Companies of specific industries, size, countries, and more.
After reviewing results from the survey, a Great Place to Work® culture consultant can work with you to:
- Understand and interpret your results
- Quantify linkages to your business strategy and performance
- Identify high-impact focus areas for your company
- Deliver an on-site presentation of survey findings, key drivers, linkage to business results, high leverage focus areas, and recommendations, drawing on insights from our Best Companies
Combined with our Trust Insights Platform™ (TIP) – a powerful tool that gives managers online access to review their data, analyze the feedback, and take ownership of survey results – a Trust Index© Survey engagement will empower the leaders, managers and employees of your organization to take steps toward becoming champions of positive culture change.
