Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated over 60 factors measuring whether employees find their organizations create a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on employees' experiences of workplace trust and the opportunity to reach their full potential at the organization, no matter who they are or what they do.
