2012 Best Workplaces in Europe – Small and Medium
The Great Place to Work® Institute is proud to announce the 100 Best Workplaces in Europe 2012. The 2012 survey was conducted with over 250,000 employees across 1,500+ European organisations.
Microsoft tops the Best Workplace list in the multinational category, while Tetra Pak and Finish IT company Futrice top the Large and SME categories respectively.
Benefits of being a Best Workplace
Despite the economic uncertainty caused by the falling Euro across Europe, the 100 Best Workplaces lead the way in demonstrating that creating and maintaining a workplace culture based on trust is good for business. Key benefits include enhanced employee recruitment and retention, reduced labour costs and increased productivity and profitability.
All of our 100 Best European Workplaces have also been recognised as Best Workplaces in their respective countries. What unites them across countries, economies and cultures is strong and visionary leadership and a commitment to creating the kind of workplace where employees trust the management, have pride in what they do and enjoy working with their colleagues. It is these motivated and dedicated employees who are more likely to support the organisation and help companies get through times of economic uncertainty.
The companies recognised as Europe’s Best Workplaces have established work cultures that set the standard not only in Europe but around the world. Many have achieved this in a number of different European countries in which they operate.This is a testimony to both the strength of the organisations’ leadership and consistency in workplace strategies across a number of different countries, cultures and economies. Against a backdrop of increasing uncertainty over the Euro more companies are recognising the importance of a workplace culture based on trust and the impact this can have on business performance; Indeed, our study of companies over the last 20 years shows that high-trust work environments are more successful in overcoming difficult times. Creating a great workplace is a powerful competitive tool, which is used by an increasing number of companies in Europe and around the globe.
