Best Workplaces’ annual survey selects companies with the best working environment, and is organized in Greece by ‘Great Place to Work Institute Hellas’. Company evaluation is performed in collaboration with the Department of applied research of ALBA Graduate Business School. Classification of companies is based on two factors: employee responses in the Trust Index © questionnaire (weight 2 / 3), and Human Resource Directorate responses regarding Personnel Administration in two Culture Audit © questionnaires (weight 1 / 3). Results of these two tools (Trust Index © and Culture Audit ©) determine the final ranking of companies.

The study examines and evaluates 5 basic parameters of a working environment, as determined by the methodology of Great Place to Work:

The credibility of the administration.
Respect for workers.
The sense of justice that exists in the company.
The sense of pride employees feel.
A developing sense of comradeship.
