Great Place to Work
Great Place to Work® (GPTW) is the global authority on building, sustaining and recognising high-trust, high performance workplace cultures.
GPTW lead the industry with the most rigorous, data-based model for quantifying employee experience.
The GPTW organisation uses a combination of a trust survey and culture audit to assess whether the culture meets the criteria to be a certified ‘Great Place To Work’. The trust survey measures employee feedback by asking questions on five areas: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie, while the culture audit measures what managers do by assessing the people practices at Coats.
Coats have worked with the GPTW organisation for a number of years in Brazil, and with the HR Asia team in Vietnam. We are proud that during the first half of 2021, Coats’ operations in Sri Lanka, Brazil, China and India have all been certified. Coats Brazil achieved this recognition for the fourth year in a row.
In line with our target to achieve ‘Great Place To Work’ or equivalent awards for all our key sites by 2022, Coats’ operations in a further 11 countries will be surveyed over the rest of 2021.
