Chennai, India – Cook Medical India has been Great Place to Work-Certified™ by the Great Place to Work® Institute in India. Awarded in March 2022, this certification acknowledges organisations for being an employer of choice. It is considered as the gold standard in identifying and recognising great workplace cultures.
As the pioneer in researching characteristics of great workplaces and helping organisations to transform their workplaces, the Great Place to Work Institute has more than 30 years of experience, with establishments around the globe. Their mission is to build a better world by helping organisations become great places to work for all.
To obtain the certification, Cook India was assessed by the institute, which include a survey called Trust Index© to measure employee experience. And a Culture Audit© that evaluates the quality of people practices within the organisation, including areas like trust, values, and leadership effectiveness. The institute only certifies organisations that achieve a minimum 70% positive responses in the Trust Index survey and abide by the audit norms.
“Employee engagement has been a key area that we focus on globally at Cook Medical,” said Jean-Marc Creissel, vice president at Cook Medical and director of Asia Pacific. “One of our primary areas of focus this year is to continue to build internal capabilities that enable us to improve our employee engagement. Seeing Cook India being certified as a great place to work is surely an honour. It recognises our effort in creating a workplace and organisational culture that is well-received by our own employees.”
“By working through the certification process with Great Place to Work, we were able to gather insights on how the organisation is doing as an employer in our employees’ eyes,” said Vijayan Govindaraman, general manager of Cook India. “We hope this will help us further improve to become a top-class employer in India and as a result, attracting more talents to our company.”
