What do the winners stand out for?

World-class workplaces distinguish themselves from other organizations. They listen to their employees and use their feedback and ideas to continuously improve. This has proven to be extremely valuable, particularly over the past year. 

These organizations score high on engagement (7.8), employees are passionate about their work. Customer centricity scores high (7.7), which means that in addition to employees, customers also benefit from a positive organizational culture. Employees experience a great deal of autonomy (7.5), because they are given the freedom to organize their own work. Frameworks and priorities are clear and there is sufficient role clarity (7.3). Now that a lot of work is done at home, these are important conditions for success.

The most honest quality mark for being a good employer

Good employers deserve recognition. That is why Effectory started surveying and rewarding good employment practices 20 years ago. In doing so, we encourage good employment practices and inspire organizations with the knowledge and expertise of other excellent employers.

The World-Class Workplace label is handed out to organizations that score above the national benchmark for good employment practices. It's 100% based on feedback from employees. For applicants, this is the proof that they are joining one of the best employers.
