Our second annual Certification Nation Day has come to an end, but we are still buzzing with excitement from all the celebrations.
On October 20, 2020, we honored a group of amazing companies – the Certification Nation – a league of organizations committed to creating great workplaces for all.
Being Great Place to Work-Certified™ is about more than just bragging rights – it’s a recognition that can only be awarded to companies by their own people.
Celebrations may have looked a bit different this year. But whether these #GPTWCertified companies were able to celebrate in the office or via Zoom, the appreciation for their employees could be heard loud and clear on social media.
Check out some of our favorite moments from Certification Nation Day 2020:
1. ALKU broke out the #GPTWCertified Swag
