Methodology for the Great Place to Work 2021 certification: employee experience measurements and corporate practices at the center of this data-based model

Great Place To Work® is the global authority on workplace culture. It uses a rigorous, data-based model to assess staff perception and corporate practices. It also offers corporations tailored support programs to make trust the cornerstone of their corporate culture, promoting their people’s fulfilment and driving each company’s performances over the long term.

 

Great Place To Work draws on two tools to conduct its company assessments:

1. The Trust Index© comprises a 60-question employee survey, managed by Great Place to Work. This anonymous questionnaire assesses working relationships between employees and their leaders on the basis of five key dimensions:

  • The respect section assesses employee perception of professional support, collaboration and involvement in decisions, and the level of care management shows.
  • The credibility dimension evaluates employee perception of management communication methods, practices, competence and integrity.
  • The camaraderie aspect analyzes whether employees believe their company is a strong community where colleagues are friendly, supportive, and welcoming.
  • The fairness component measures the equity, impartiality, and justice employees experience in the workplace.
  • The pride element assesses how employees feel about their own individual impact through their work, their pride in the work of their team, and their pride in the company overall.

2. The Culture Audit© measures the quality and diversity of management practices in the company. The Culture Audit© is compiled by the applicant company, and covers questions about people practices, policies and leadership across nine areas for action. This application is assessed by Great Place To Work using the so-called VOAHI international rating grid.

 

Dorval Asset Management was awarded the Great Place To Work certification following this two-fold process.
