Employee survey

The Trust Index™ is our employee survey that measures trust, pride and fun in your organization. It provides concrete tools to engage with each other and to work on your organizational culture.

Every year we conduct this employee survey at 10,000 organizations in 60 countries. We have been doing this for more than 30 years.

Because the Trust Index is based on universal values, it is applicable worldwide in any organization, regardless of size or industry.

This is what makes our employee survey unique

"Culture is the foundation of everything. Making that culture measurable and tangible so you can actually build on it, is why you should partner with Great Place To Work."

Jurriaan van Reijsen, Employee Engagement Lead at Avisi

More than an employee satisfaction survey

The Trust Index measures more than just engagement or satisfaction. Of course, there is nothing wrong with satisfied employees. But there is a big difference between a satisfied employee and an employee who can and wants to use his or her full potential. In the latter case, employees actually contribute to innovation and growth in an organization.

Therefore, to be successful as an organization, you need more than satisfied employees. An environment where trust, pride and fun are central and where every employee feels seen, heard and appreciated makes everyone able and willing to use his or her full potential.

So the Trust Index is not an employee satisfaction survey or employee engagement survey. It is much more than that.
