Workhuman Ranked One of the 2020 Best Workplaces in Europe by Great Place to Work
London, September 10, 2020 – Workhuman, the world’s fastest-growing social recognition and continuous performance management platform, today announced that it has been recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Europe for 2020. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, has included Workhuman among its listings for the past 13 years.
The list publication comes amid the COVID-19 crisis, which has upended daily life and business operations throughout the region. Organisations on the list are leading the way amid the pandemic, demonstrating care for their employees, their customers and their communities during this difficult time.
“The COVID-19 pandemic highlights how critical it is for organisations to establish great workplaces for all employees prior to crises,” said Michael C. Bush, Global CEO of Great Place to Work. “The trust, care and agility that are the bedrock of Europe’s best workplaces help these organisations, their people and their communities survive and even thrive during periods of significant economic and personal stress.”
To be considered for the 2020 Best Workplaces List in Europe, companies must appear on one or more of Great Place to Work’s national lists in the region, which includes Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Great Place to Work analysed survey results from more than 3,000 organisations across Europe, representing more than 1,500,000 employees.
“We’re proud to once again be named one of Great Place to Work’s Best Workplaces in Europe for 2020,” said Eric Mosley, CEO and co-founder at Workhuman. “At Workhuman, we give organisations the tools, data, and change management solutions they need to create more human-centred workplaces and it’s so important to us that we empower our own employees by placing them at the heart of everything that we do. Investing in recognition, encouraging people to be themselves in the workplace, and helping them to learn and grow, are just some of the ways in which we inspire our employees to do their best work.”
Great Place to Work’s global research shows that high-trust cultures for all employees are the defining characteristic of great workplaces; however, there are some regional variations. Best Workplaces in Europe stand out for their unusually equitable cultures compared to most of the world. Employees in Europe believe promotions are fair, that there is equal opportunity for special recognition, and that company profits are shared fairly to a degree that is unusual around the world. The Best Workplaces in Europe also distinguish themselves through leaders whose actions match their words and who avoid workplace politics as a way to get things done.
As a result, employees at the Best Workplaces in Europe who feel their employers are committed to fair treatment reciprocate with extra effort and loyalty — fuelling greater company performance.
