Great Place to Work
Great Place to Work® (GPTW) is the global authority on building, sustaining and recognising high-trust, high performance workplace cultures.
GPTW lead the industry with the most rigorous, data-based model for quantifying employee experience.
The GPTW organisation uses a combination of a trust survey and culture audit to assess whether the culture meets the criteria to be a certified ‘Great Place To Work’. The trust survey measures employee feedback by asking questions on five areas: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie, while the culture audit measures what managers do by assessing the people practices at Coats.
Coats have worked with the GPTW organisation for a number of years in Brazil, and with the HR Asia team in Vietnam.
Our goal is to have the employees at all of our key sites covered by the ‘Great Place To Work’ accreditation, or equivalent award, by 2022, covering at least 80% of our employees. After putting the process on hold in 2020 because of the pandemic we restarted is in early 2021 and we are delighted that 14 countries have now been awarded the GPTW certification, ensuring that at the end of 2021, 83% (compared to 6% in 2020) of our employees are covered by the award, far exceeding our target for the year and delivering our 2022 target a year early.
