For Great Place to Work® (GPTW), trust forms the basis of a successful workplace culture. "Trust is the result of credibility (1), respect (2) and fairness (3) practiced at the workplace. In a culture of trust, team spirit (4) and pride (5) arise," as per GPTW. The Great Place to Work® employee survey measures the severity of these five dimensions.

93% of the jambitees confirm: "All in all, I can say it's a very good workplace."

The approval rate across these five dimensions provides information about jambit's strengths and development potential. Here is a first overview: jambit's strengths are especially...

  • Team spirit (95% jambit vs. 63% benchmark)
  • Credibility (90% vs. 61% benchmark)
  • Fairness (90% vs. 62% benchmark).

...closely followed by...

  • Respect (85% vs. 54% benchmark)
  • Pride (84% vs. 71% benchmark)

But rather than resting on our success, we perceive critical feedback, recognizable gaps, and for jambit standard relatively low figures ​​as a gift. We can learn a lot from this and make jambit an even better employer.

About Great Place to Work® and jambit
Workplace culture – lived and tested out

What and who is Great Place to Work®?

Founded in 2002 and active in 52 countries, Great Place to Work® is an independent research institute that measures the workplace culture of companies.

Great Place to Work® conducts its studies every year and uses two proven survey instruments to evaluate the lived workplace culture:

  • an employee survey (rated 2/3)
  • and the culture audit (rated 1/3).

Interesting in the employee survey: 90% of the participating companies form the market benchmark. 5% are below the bottom line. These are considered "very critical". And 5% of all companies are above the upper threshold and are given the title "excellent".

In the end, only the 100 best companies in Germany are really awarded "Germany's Best Employers". Classified into size categories and according to the respective industries and regions, these best companies receive an award.

Why are we participating...

...for an attractive workplace, trust and corporate culture! We want to know where jambit really stands in terms of future-oriented workplace culture – confirmed by an independent body. And that's exactly what GPTW does.

In addition, GPTW offers a benchmark comparison. We find it extremely useful to compare our own results with other companies.

This is why we added this external perspective to our internal "Stimmungsbarometer" (opinion surveys). This classification allows us to review and develop our HR instruments and measures strategically, and gives us additional inspiration thanks to best practices.

In 2018, jambit took part in GPTW for the first time and was already able to place itself directly among the 100 best employers. In addition to "Germany's best employer", we were awarded one of the best employers in Bavaria and in ICT.
