Voluntary candidates for GPTW certification, Vardeco and Groupe Acrotec have been rewarded for the level of commitment, satisfaction and recognition of their employees, following an extensive internal survey carried out in their companies.
Acrotec Group is committed to employee fulfillment and satisfaction, and has called on the expertise of Great Place To Work (GPTW) to carry out its first anonymous satisfaction survey of all its companies’ employees, between May 29 and June 16, 2023.
“In choosing GPTW, we wanted to rely on an independent organization whose model and methodology have proved their worth and enable us to achieve genuine national and international recognition,” explains François Billig, CEO of Acrotec. This certification is a fine acknowledgement of our corporate culture, which our employees truly recognize and appreciate.”
A questionnaire was therefore sent out to all group employees, focusing on 5 major themes: credibility, respect, fairness, conviviality and pride. The questionnaire consisted of 73 questions.
To award its certification, GPTW uses the following 4 criteria:
- The average satisfaction rate in the country concerned must be over 65%: Switzerland, Singapore, Indonesia and the United States are certified.
- The company-wide satisfaction rate must exceed 65%.
- The participation rate must be representative within the company.
- Company size: at least 10 employees
Based on these overriding criteria and their geographical location, Vardeco and 15 other Acrotec Group companies have been GPTW certified. But certification is not an end in itself. This work will enable all Group companies to access and analyze the survey results, and to implement actions to improve employee satisfaction, given that the participation rate exceeded 75% within the Acrotec Group.
“This approach was the wish of the Group’s management,” explains Adrien Delobel, ESG Manager at Acrotec. We wanted to demonstrate that our good intentions are followed by action. Today, this certification and this approach enable us to concretely affirm our human resources policy, our values and the lessons to be learned for all Group companies in order to be better. It is also a strong message to those who are positioning themselves on the job market and would like to join us“.
