We are pleased to announce that Thinkproject is a certified Great Place to Work.
We recently undertook our yearly employee survey that gives our staff the chance to openly provide feedback and comments on several different topics about working at Thinkproject, as well as rating important business functionality such as management styles and working methods. We worked with Great Place to Work® to bring the survey to our 450+ employees so they could have their say, as well as benchmark ourselves to other companies.
We were pleased to see that our employees rank us highly on aspects such as being treated fairly, celebrating individual working styles, and our ‘safe to fail’ attitude to trying new working methods. Our 76% rating ranks us within the top 20% of comparable companies (Information and Communication market with less than 500 employees), which we are very proud of!
The “Great Place to Work® Certified” certification program of the international research and consulting institute recognises special commitment by employers to design the right workplace culture and is awarded on the basis of a vetted procedure. This includes independent, anonymous feedback from employees and an analysis of human resources activities and programmes.
“Good employers have one thing in common,” says Sebastian Diefenbach, Head of Customer Consulting at Great Place to Work®, “they are committed to credible, fair leadership and actively nurturing employees. Respect, trust and team spirit are a major part of the corporate culture.”
There is no mistaking that 2020 was the year when our company culture was really put to the test with remote working in a highly stressful situation outside of any of our control. It is a testament to how our staff embrace our values that we were able to maintain a strong culture as we transitioned into remote working.
As we continue to expand our workforce, we have introduced several schemes to give something back to our staff, including access to Udemy training courses and Headspace to maintain that all-important work-life balance.
Thinkproject is committed to diversity and inclusivity within our company, as well as letting our employees contribute to fostering an open working environment. Over the past year we have established our own Women’s Network, set up an Employee Engagement Committee in our UK office to great success, as well as offering our staff different avenues to give us valuable feedback.
We are really delighted with our results and will be looking into how we can continue to improve Thinkproject as a great place to work. We received lots of useful feedback to help us make 2021 an even better year. With our continued growth we expect to expand our team even more and are looking forward to welcoming our new starters!
