Parexel India renews official 'Great Place to Work' certification
We are proud of our colleagues in India who work hard to bring our values to life daily.
The certification is based on a detailed, research-backed survey of Parexel India colleagues and conducted by Great Place to Work, an outside organization. You can see Parexel India listed on the Great Place To Work website (under Large Organizations).
Parexel was evaluated across five categories — pride, credibility, camaraderie, respect, and fairness. For an organization to be certified as a Great Place to Work, 70 percent or more of employee respondents need to rate the organization as a great workplace.
This year, nearly 3,700 colleagues participated, resulting in an impressive 76% participation rate. The results are also impressive — on average, scores for Parexel India increased in all categories by 10 to 15 points and the overall Trust Index captured in the survey increased by nine points for a total score of 82.
Great Place to Work is the global authority on building, sustaining and recognizing high-trust and high-performance culture at workplaces. For over 30 years, Great Place to Work has conducted research on the characteristics of great workplaces. Their mission is to build a better world by helping organizations become Great Places to Work for all.
In India, Great Place to Work recognizes organizations through the Great Place to Work Certification and through research-based annual lists of Best Workplaces. Each year, more than 10,000 organizations apply to be Great Place to Work certified. The certification is recognized by employees and employers around the world and is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ in identifying and recognizing great workplace cultures.
