It’s official! Softline Group Northern Europe is certified as a Great Place to Work - for the 3rd year in a row!
Dennis Montanje, Managing Director Softline Group Northern Europe & Vice President ITAM: “Of all the awards and certifications an organisation is able to win or to be granted, this is the absolute best one! This is a certification, granted by all employees, based on their own personal feelings towards the company. They are our most important and valuable asset, and together we make Softline who we are and live the values which we stand for. I am very proud of receiving this certification, especially since it is the 3rd year in a row.”
“Great Place to Work Nederland examines the degree of trust, pride and pleasure within organisations. Based on the results of the employee survey and the analysis of the organisational culture, it is assessed whether the criteria for good employment practices have been met. Only organisations that achieve the required scores on both components may immediately bear the title Great Place to Work Certified.”, René Brouwers, director of Great Place to Work Netherlands says. “Being a good employer is the way to organisational success - that is the belief of Great Place to Work Netherlands. Organisations that have a culture of trust, pride and pleasure perform better. To excel in this area is an achievement, an achievement to be proud of and an achievement that deserves attention.” Brouwers about the research: "We ask employees' opinions on five values: credibility, respect, honesty, pride and companionship. Those values are linked to performance. We apply this approach worldwide in 60 countries at more than 7,000 organisations.”, Brouwers adds.
