In a major recognition of its employer branding, energy maharatna Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) has been certified by the Great Place to Work, for its ‘high-trust, high-performance culture’. Great Place to Work is an USA-based global leader in certification of HR practices; it surveys more than 10,000 organizations, in over 60 countries globally every year.
This certification is based on a robust survey conducted among randomly selected employees of the organization. Based on the survey, Great Place to Work certifications are conferred to the organizations where 70 percent or more employee respondents rate the organization as a great workplace. Also, the organization’s people practices require getting rated 2.5 or more on a 5 point scale by Great Place to Work Institute.
Earlier in September this year, ONGC participated in the employee survey conducted by Great Place to Work. ONGC’s recognition as a Great Place to Work is under the large organizations category – which include organizations with more than 500 employees and less than 50,000 employees. To administer the survey, Great Place to Work surveyed a random cross-section of 1,500 ONGCians. The survey responses were treated anonymously and with complete confidentiality.
With the certification of Great Place to Work, ONGC will be able to benchmark employee perceptions of workplace environment with selected best practices in the industry and elsewhere. This will also enable ONGC to appreciate its strengths as an employer and identify focus areas for improvement.
