Once again, Q_PERIOR has succeeded in securing a top 10 finish in the Medium Companies category (50-249 employees), which had the highest number of participants. “We are absolutely delighted to have been placed highly yet again. Over recent years, we have proved ourselves to be an employer with much to offer. Being voted one of the best employers in Switzerland by our own staff makes us very proud,” says Hasan Tekin, partner and Managing Director at Q_PERIOR Switzerland. “The ranking confirms that even with such strong growth, the company has retained an attractive and personal corporate culture.” The merger with the P5 Group virtually doubled the staffing level of the Swiss-based company last year.
With an approval rating of 96%, the workforce acknowledged the company’s strong culture of trust and its welcoming attitude; 85% of staff members were convinced that words are backed up with deeds while 92% agreed with the general statement “Overall, I would say this is a very good place to work”. The consultancy firm thus comfortably surpassed the external benchmark.
The Swiss subsidiary also consolidated the excellent result achieved in Germany: the neighbouring country to the north ranked 11th in March. It is not the first time Q_PERIOR in Switzerland has been confirmed as a highly popular employer: the company also secured awards in previous years by combining innovation with a unique corporate culture.
“Our employees are the key to our success, so we are duty bound to be a good employer for them. We will continue to foster our distinct team spirit and strong identification with corporate values in order to strengthen the motivation and commitment of our staff members,” continues Hasan Tekin.
A total of 150 companies representing all sectors took part in the latest benchmark survey of the quality and attractiveness of workplace culture carried out by the independent research and consultancy institute Great Place to Work®. The prizewinners were invited to the official quality seal award ceremony in Zurich on 16th May.
Evaluations were based on an anonymous survey of employees on key workplace criteria such as trust, identification, team spirit, vocational development, pay, occupational health and the work-life balance; human resources processes were also audited.
