Jaipuria Institute of Management has bagged the prestigious Great Place to Work certification for the second year in a row. Great Place to Work Institute is a renowned global management research and consulting firm that strives to help companies reach their business goals while creating best work places. Hence the certification has assumed great significance amongst global Social Services Organizations, Small and Mid-Sized Organizations, and Start-Ups.
Jaipuria Institute of Management wins the certification as one of the Mid-Size Organizations that have fostered a great work place environment for its employees. It’s interesting to note that when the B School won the certification last year its employee size was 264 while it has gone up to 311 this year. As it retains its place in Education and Training category, it reflects on its consistent efforts to maintain best working standards for its growing employee size.
Great Place to Work Certification takes into account people practices in organizations. Employees are surveyed across 56 parameters and the organization gets certified only if more than 70% of the respondents rate it as a great work place. Credibility of management, respect for people, fairness at the work place, pride and camaraderie constitute the Trust Index. Organizations also need to score at least 2.5 on the 5 point scale for people practices.
This year’s Great Place to Work Certification happens to be the biggest so far with more than 10000 organizations associating with the research and consulting firm for assessment. They came from about 60 countries and across industries. Jaipuria Institute of Management, which has four campuses in Lucknow, Noida, Jaipur and Indore once again won the honors as the organization that is growing along with its employees.
Mr. Amit Attry, Vice President, Marketing & Corporate Relations of the B School says, “It’s about getting the simple things right. You don’t need a fancy work place to make employees feel at home and be a part of the family. You need a spirit of team work and positivity at the workplace to have your team at their best”. Jaipuria endeavored to do that through initiatives ranging from Faculty Development Programs to yoga, recreation sessions, fitness training and POSH (Prevention of Sexual Harassment) Training and other comprehensive measure in workplace culture and talent management practices. Its Great Place to Work Certification is a testament to those efforts.
