The World’s Best Employers

Twenty-seven employers receive the 2012 Gallup Great Workplace Award, recognizing the world’s most productive and engaged workplaces. 

The-Worlds-Best-EmployersGallup recently announced that 27 distinguished organizations have been designated as recipients of the 2012 Gallup Great Workplace Award. The Gallup Great Workplace Award honors organizations that have demonstrated they have the most productive and engaged workforces in the world.

Gallup Great Workplace Award winners are globally dispersed and come from all facets of business, from healthcare to hospitality, retail to manufacturing, and banks to insurance.

“Worldwide, there are more than two actively disengaged employees for every engaged employee. The organizations we are honoring are ones that have worked hard to shatter and reverse what is typical and they average nine engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee,” said James K. Harter, Ph.D., Gallup’s Chief Scientist of workplace management.

“Engaged employees are more productive, safer, more customer-centric, and more profitable. They are also 3.5 times more likely to be thriving in their overall lives, experience better days, and have fewer unhealthy days. In short, these winners are improving lives as they improve the overall performance of their companies.”
