The competition process is based on two criteria: employee survey results and in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
