We focus on commitment to work-life balance, a strong vision, stability of the company's core values and creating a pool of fantastic people. Striking a balance between maintaining our values and managing performance, compensation and employee satisfaction has made all the difference. We continuously strive to create an atmosphere of trust and communication between management and employees."

As per the survey Wipro Spectramind and Birla Sun Life Insurance are the other two Indian companies beside GCPL to feature among the list of Top 10. The first list was compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute in the US in 1984. Since then, the surveys done by the organisation have become an annual feature in over 20 countries around the world. The results of the survey are featured exclusively in leading publications like Fortune magazine, Financial Times and The Sunday Times, London.

The companies participating in the survey has to go through the same rigorous methodology followed in the rest of the world. Grow Talent first administered the Great Place To Work Culture Audit. The firms had to answer searching questions on what they had done to create a climate of trust, pride and camaraderie — the three cornerstones of great workplaces.
