Five Dimensions of Company Culture
The Great Place to Work Trust Index Survey measures individual employee experiences on five dimensions of a high-trust company culture. Three of the dimensions— credibility, respect, and fairness—are connected to the actions of leaders and building trust. The other two dimensions— pride and a sense of belonging—measure the workplace experience of employees in relation to their colleagues and the wider organization. Together, the five dimensions create a workplace culture where employees feel empowered and encouraged to do their most meaningful work. High-trust cultures are shown in Great Place to Work research to outperform their competitors.
This globally recognized and research-backed verification of great employee experience provides employers with a recruiting advantage and helps job seekers identify which companies genuinely offer a great company culture.
