It’s a recognition we earned for being a workplace that puts its people first. A great employee experience has always been our top priority and what we believe sets us apart.
“When we started B&P, one of the core reasons was to make a creative and healthy working environment. The Great Place to Work certification solidifies that we are on track with what we set out to do,” says Carmen Booth, CEO of Booth & Partners. “It helps organizations to look into the data of their employees’ individual experiences, have a better understanding of their culture’s story, and ensure an overall great workplace culture,” she added.
According to the survey conducted by the organization, Great Place to Work, 94% of our employees say that Booth & Partners has a great work culture.
GPTW asked Kate, Graphic Designer at Booth & Partners why she thinks B&P is a great place to work. “I love how they align their values with sustainability and social responsibility. They have strong advocacy for going beyond the usual work culture. I resonate with the brand and its goals for the future,” she said.
Who is Great Place to Work?
Great Place To Work® is the global authority on workplace culture. Its goal is to build a better world by helping organizations develop a high-trust culture. They believe in validating the employee experience and the certification is the first step to understanding how your employee experience stacks up and gets recognized for the great workplace culture you have built.
What is the Science Behind their Ranking System?
In 30 years of research, GPTW was able to develop a methodology to determine the Certification and ranking of the Best Workplaces. They gather data using a Trust Index© Survey with questions based on the five dimensions of their Trust Model© and a Culture Brief Audit©. The system adds the scores based on 5 dimensions: Credibility, Fairness, Respect, Camaraderie, and Pride. From there, it determines a score and ranking.
“B&P is an organization that goes above and beyond for the welfare of its employees. They offer mutual support, promote trust, reward efforts, and ensure that employees know their work is meaningful. Having a proven methodology to determine our scores gives our employees a sense of trust that they are being heard. Having this data will allow us to take actionable steps to improve on key focus areas,” said Josephine Bacsain, HR Manager at Booth & Partners.
