How to become eligible for a list.

To be eligible for any of these lists, your company needs to be Great Place To Work Certified. Here’s how earning Certification works:


You survey employees and complete a short questionnaire.

You’ll launch the Trust Index™, our research-backed employee experience survey, to collect quantitative and qualitative data about working at your organisation.

You’ll also complete a short questionnaire organisation culture and workforce called the Culture Brief™.


We analyse your survey responses.

We’ll analyse both the numerical results and the qualititive comments that your employees submit, along with the information you provide in the Culture Brief.


You earn Certification and become eligible for Best Workplaces lists!

Once you meet our criteria and employee feedback benchmark, you’ll earn the special distinction of being a Great Place To Work Certified Company – and you’ll be eligible for all Best Workplaces Lists!

You’ll also have access to a suite of employer branding tools and promotional assets.

How long it takes to earn Certification and be eligible for lists.

Between setting up your employee survey, running it, and analysing the results, you can expect Certification to take at least three to four weeks.

If you need extra time to set up and run your survey, or to get any necessary approvals and budget, you’ll want to account for that in your timeline and expectations.

Plus, as you can see from the calendar above, several months pass between when applications for a list close, and when that list is finalised and published. A lot of companies apply for these lists, and we carefully review those applications, so it takes some time.

This is why you should not delay getting started on Certification- the deadlines can arrive much faster than you think! A list might not be announced until a year from now, but if applications close six months ahead of that, and you have to incorporate Certification into your quarterly planning, you might only have a few weeks to get the process started.

Certified companies attract and retain more employees
