BENGALURU, INDIA - Media OutReach - 5 September 2018 - Avnet India has been certified as a Great Workplace for the second consecutive year. The recognition was based on a rigorous assessment by Great Place to Work® Institute, considered the Gold standard in workplace culture assessment and recognition globally.
As part of the assessment, Great Place to Work Institute consolidated feedback from Avnet India's employees and measured their perceptions using Great Place to Work's proprietary framework, Trust Index© that surveys employees anonymously. Participating companies were evaluated on several factors such as: credibility of the management, respect for people, fairness at workplace, workplace culture, including the level of trust they feel towards leaders, the pride they take in their jobs, and the camaraderie they experience with co-workers. The second aspect studied by the Institute was the evaluation of people practices through their proprietary framework, Culture Audit© that covers several areas such as: hiring, speaking, listening, inspiring, and sharing. Avnet India scored an overwhelming 80 percent or higher in all criteria listed by Great Place to Work based on employees' surveys.
