dbi services awarded 1st place in the “Best Workplaces Switzerland 2019” award
Delémont, 15 April 2019 – For the third year running, dbi services has been recognized as “Best Workplace”. This year, the Delémont-based IT services company and its branches in Basel, Bern, Nyon and Zurich have achieved a podium finish, winning first place in the Medium-sized business category (50 to 249 employees). The company’s rise from the 17th place achieved in 2018 is the result of the hard work undertaken by its entire workforce.
A record-breaking satisfaction rate and a strong corporate culture
The Great Place to Work® Institute bases its results on an anonymous employee survey with a required response rate of 90% and an audit of the company’s corporate culture. An overall satisfaction rate of 96%
puts dbi services 16 points above the national average of certified companies (80%) and 37 points above uncertified companies (59%) across all categories. This exceptional score stems from many factors, chief among which is the company’s corporate culture which combines the values of sharing, trust and fairness, and which the employees contribute to on an active basis.
The results achieved in 2018 helped dbi services improve further
In 2018, dbi services was placed 17th out of all companies with 50 to 249 employees. While this result was considered acceptable, the company felt that it wasn’t enough. It was for this reason that the board of directors quickly laid out a concrete approach with a focus on the needs of the staff. Employee-focused participative projects were set up as a result, which gave rise to improvements such as the roll-out of home office. These measures have had a positive impact, as shown by the fact that the satisfaction rate has improved by 7 points since 2018.
Employee consultation and involvement are the keys drivers of satisfaction
During the award ceremony on Thursday 4 April 2019, Alain Lacour, one of the employees’ representatives, explained how the improvements came about: “We were consulted, and our voices were heard, which led to more employee involvement in company planning. We are wholly satisfied, and this is best shown by our rank.”
