Being a Good Employer

Four overall winners and 14 industry winners were crowned during a canal cruise through Amsterdam.

The company rewards good Employership practices and aims to inspire and encourage organizations to put their people first.

Strengthening Employership: Effectory’s World-class Workplace Event

The Importance of ESG

Being a World-class Workplace goes hand in hand with a strong ESG policy. To measure this, Effectory launched the new ESG Scan during the World-class Workplace event. The new scan allows organizations to measure six constructs, or themes: sustainable health and safety, diversity and inclusion, fair pay and retention, sustainable culture and innovation, good governance, and trust and top-down management tone. The product is available to Effectory clients from today on.

Christian de Waard, Chief Executive Officer of Effectory, says: “The World-class Workplace label is based on authentic employee feedback, and it’s the most honest label for being a good employer. It’s great to see that the Netherlands has many organizations that prioritize being a good employer. And that is very important in 2023, especially with the tough labor market. It is clear from the results that the winners listen to their employees and act immediately when they receive feedback and ideas. This is what makes an organization a World-class Workplace.”

Sander van Gelderen, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Product Officer of Effectory, says: “Apart from the fact that the event was of course all about the winners, it’s also nice to see that ESG was also an important topic. We have been working with Effectory for a long time to optimize the new ESG scan. I am proud that we can launch this beautiful new product on a day like today. With the scan, we are helping companies to focus on and further optimize their environmental, social and governance policies – an important issue!”
