Appreciation goes both ways
"We are delighted with our first award in The Great Place to Work as a Dutch top performer in our category,” says Chris Jansen, Country Manager for the Netherlands at Basefarm. In particular, he is greatly pleased with the high marks in the employee survey, which accounted for 2/3 of the end score. "With our Northern European background, our goal is always to put clients and employees first. If they are happy, the business thrives. It's fantastic that our people recognise these efforts, are aware of our appreciation for them and have fun working at Basefarm. For me personally, it's a huge source of joy and a privilege to be part of such a competent and motivated team of colleagues. It's simply a Great Place to Work."
At an international level (in the Netherlands, but also in Norway and Sweden), Basefarm's HR team has been working with Great Place to Work since 2013, with the goal of creating a truly great workplace. Earlier, these efforts resulted in top ten listings as Best Workplace in Norway (category: 200-499 staff) for 2016, 2017 and again this year in 2018. The Great Place to Work audit is part of a yearly cycle in our organisation. We apply a structured and systematic approach to the continuous improvement in our employee satisfaction, by asking for feedback, following up on this and always communicating our efforts.
