The Great Place to Work® Institute evaluates the degree of trust in relationships at organisations by analysing employee responses to its Trust Index© Employee Survey and Culture Auditã management survey. The research encompasses key metrics that determine a leading working environment, from the benefits available to employees through to levels of employee engagement with senior management.
The UK’s Best Workplaces Programme is run by the Great Place to Work® Institute UK, which forms part of the world’s largest scheme to recognise excellence in people management. A great place to work is one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people with whom they work.
Williams Johnson Mota, Business Development and Sales Manager for Great Place to Work® Institute commented:
“The Eden Project exemplifies what it means to be a great place to work. The organisation has managed to balance a dynamic culture with a commitment to professional excellence. The organisation is committed to the personal and professional development of employees. Many firms would do well to emulate the best practice human resources management policies employed by this charitable organisation.”
