As customer needs and technology change, and the competitive and industry landscapes shift, organizations need strategic culture investment and management in order to compete.

Great Place to Work®’s High-Trust, High-Performance Culture Consulting Framework lays out a clear path to building your distinct, high-trust culture as a competitive advantage. Working across all levels of your organization, our expert team supports you in creating a data-driven, customized approach that leverages culture to meet and exceed your business goals. The result is sustainable change, high trust, and high performance.

Trust Fuels Performance

To build a strong and sustainable organization you need a great strategy, great people, and great culture.

We’ve been working with the world’s Best Workplaces for 30 years and data shows that organizations with high-trust cultures consistently outperform their competitors and the market as a whole. There’s a direct link between culture and performance—an organization that is focused on performance to the exclusion of all else puts employees at risk of burnout, while one that focuses on trust with limited attention to results and accountability leads to a low performing, culture of comfort. Great Place to Work® partners with organizations to increase profitability and competitive power by developing high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures and leaders.

High-trust, high-performance organizations are more innovative, demonstrate greater business agility and speed, and have higher customer satisfaction. Taken together this workplace environment makes it easier to attract, retain, and reward top talent.

Trust Index© Survey

Join the thousands of organizations that use the Trust Index© survey annually, and benchmark your culture against the global standard of a great workplace. Comprehensive and easy-to-use, the Trust Index© survey enables you to analyze your employees’ perceptions of the workplace, compare results to key benchmarks, and receive custom recommendations.

Our decades of research have revealed that a great workplace is one in which employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with. The Trust Index© survey measures the employee experience and equips you with accurate, in-depth views of the current state of your workplace culture.

Easy to customize and implement, the Trust Index© allows you to quickly compare internal results between work groups, locations, and other demographics.

After reviewing results from the survey, a Great Place to Work® culture consultant can work with you to:

  • Understand and interpret your results
  • Quantify linkages to your strategy and performance
  • Identify high-impact focus areas for your organization
  • Deliver an on-site presentation of survey findings, key drivers, linkage to business results, high leverage focus areas, and recommendations, drawing on insights from our Best Workplaces
