More FAQs: Certification

How long does the entire Certification process take?

The entire process can be done in 4 weeks. It takes about a week to set up the survey, two weeks to run the survey and a week to analyze and deliver results.

Is the survey confidential?

Yes, the survey is absolutely confidential and we don’t share individual responses with the employer.

How is the survey administered?

We send unique survey links to all email addresses you share with us and we collect the responses online. You can track the live response rate through a link shared by us. The survey takes about 10 to 12 minutes to complete. We can also conduct paper-based surveys if your employees don’t have a work email.

What happens after the Certification expires?

Once the Certification expires, you will not be able to display your Certification badge and you will not be considered for Best Workplaces lists. To retain your Certified status, you’ll need to conduct the employee survey every 12 months.

What happens if we don’t get Certified?

We keep results completely confidential. We never disclose the names of companies who participate in the process but do not get recognized.

While it's disappointing not to be recognized, going through the process is still extremely valuable. You gain the benefits of employee feedback and can use our helpful reports and analytics to gain actionable insights about your business. We have culture coaches available if you’d like a little expert support along the way. And when you’re ready, try again!
