How Does it Work?

At Great Place to Work we believe that recognition is earned! Organisations that want to be on our prestigious Best Workplace™ list begin with the Trust Index© Survey and Culture Audit©. Through the assessment process, we capture employee feedback and details about the programmes and practises that make your workplace unique. 

If you meet the minimum 65% threshold on your Trust Index survey you will automatically receive Great Place to Work certification! 

Then based on the specific threshold for your size category and the outcome of your Culture Audit©, you can earn recognition as a UK Best Workplace. You will also get automatic entry into our other awards with accreditations such as Best Workplaces for Women, Best Workplaces in Tech, Europe's Best Workplaces, World's Best Workplaces and Excellence in Wellbeing.
