BEST WORKPLACES 2008: The 2008 Competition has already started

Thursday, 30/08/2007

All Greek companies are eligible to participate in the competition, regardless of their legal status -private or public-, with the only condition being that they employ at least 50 individuals. By participating in this competition, the Greek companies will have the opportunity to survey their working environment and find out their employees' opinions about the working conditions they face on a daily basis.

The competition is based on a survey which is conducted internally by each participating company with the intention to: a) allow its employees to evaluate their workplace and b) give the human resources manager or CEO the opportunity to describe (and support with evidence) the human resources strategy and policies of the company. In particular, a participating company is evaluated by the Trust Index employees' questionnaire (2/3 of the final score) and the Cultural Audit, top management questionnaire (1/3 of the final score). The Cultural Audit questionnaire provides information regarding the human resources strategies, policies and practices of each participating company. Moreover, supplementary material (e.g. video, employee handbooks, company newsletters, etc.) is welcome in order to strengthen the understanding of the company's workplace culture and practices. The Trust Index questionnaire, answered by the employees, is a brief opinion survey in which the employees respond regarding their workplace experience in the company. All companies that have less than 250 employees will receive the questionnaire, whereas for companies with more than 250 employees, a randomly selected group will be defined by ALBA to participate in the survey.

Each participating company, regardless of its position in the list, will receive a confidential summary indicating how its employees have responded to the employee survey (Trust Index), as well as a customized benchmark report comparing its results with other participants in Greece and Europe.

After the evaluation process is completed and the national top twenty list is formed, winners will be announced in the Greek media followed by a prestigious awards ceremony.
