Great Place to work (GPTW) Institute, India ( and Economic Times conducted the Best Workplaces 2008 study in India, the fifth study in India. This Best Workplace study is the oldest and most widely used. The Institute has researched and promoted the concept of Great Places to work for over 25 Years and is now present in 40 countries including the US and UK.

The study uses a unique employee-centric methodology and measures the levels of Trust, Pride and Camaraderie prevalent in the organization. Workplaces are ranked on a point scale based on both quantitative and qualitative data, with 2/3 of the score stemming from an employee survey and the balance 1/3 of the score from a management survey and the supplementary material that organizations provide. The employee survey comprises of 59 rating statements and two open-ended questions. The management survey comprises of two parts. Part I request detailed information about company structure, ownership, demographics of the employee population and benefits offered and Part II comprises of open-ended questions on issues like internal communications, distinctive workplace practices, employee recognition programs and workplace governance.

The 2008 study spanned over six months. It converted more than 200 participating firms, surveyed 36,000 employees of which more than half employees of which more than half gave additional written comments.

To avoid potential conflict of interest GPTW institute, India, as a policy, does not do any consulting work with any of the companies who feature in our Best Workplaces List till such time they continue to feature in the List.

I went through your article. It is really excellent. If companies give 4-5 benefits out of 108 to the employees, companies can improve employer – employee relation. I also like [FONT='Trebuchet MS','sans-serif']Employee referred as “Members”, Department referred as “Groups”. [/FONT][FONT='Trebuchet MS','sans-serif']Thanks a lot for this wonderful article. As an HR professional, I must say one should go for this..[/FONT]

Thank you Peer Saab !
From whatever I know about HR, I understand the points shared in the list are about culture of an organisation. While every organisation will have its own unique culture, the article hints at traits that should be part of an organisation's culture.
I am working in an organisation, ofcourse having its own culture, traits and practices. We want to have the traits and practices mentioned in the article in our organisation. In my opinion, it is difficult to introduce them in an existing organisation than in a new setup.
Will appreciate if someone can share how they introduced change in the culture and its traits in their respective organisation.

Dear Mr Sardhar,
The points listed out makes interesting reading but how many MNCs do implement the above? Is this the reason why these Cos functioning in Idia are graded below the ones abroad?
I feel that many of the points can be extended to the vendors too- that is the HK, maintainance, Security etc. I have noticed that they are treated as the OBCs of the industry-correct if I am wrong.
