What is IBM Best Workplaces all about? Participating organisations ask their employees to complete a confidential and secure survey about their workplace, and in return, your business will receive valuable feedback and insights to identify both positive aspects of your workplace and those that need work. Organisations that achieve the best survey results are celebrated as the 'Best Workplaces' in New Zealand – as judged by their own employees.
IBM Best Workplaces is the largest and longest running employee engagement survey in New Zealand and a definitive measure for 'best employer' and 'employer of choice', with 18 years of valuable experience and extensive industry benchmarks to measure your business against. It provides you with valuable employee insights to help you improve employee engagement and enables you to create a more successful business.
Employees want to work for a company that values them and their work, and assists in the development of their skills and careers. When employees are valued and engaged, they work harder, care more, stay with your business longer and find gratification in helping your organisation succeed, which is what Just Water is all about.
