Great Place to Work is a global certification programme that gives companies recognition for positive and trust based corporate culture. Certification is based on Trust Index© personnel survey which scans the atmosphere of the workplace with 15 criteria. In the GPTW model a good workplace is built upon five themes: credibility, respect, fairness, team spirit, and pride. The realisation of these five themes is measured with an elaborate evaluation of workplace culture and atmosphere by Great Place to Work. The certification includes a comprehensive personnel survey as well as an audit for the corporate procedures and policies.
