The recognition is based on an assessment of employee ratings of their workplace culture, including the level of trust they feel towards leaders, the pride they take in their jobs and the camaraderie they experience with co-workers. The assessment involved an objective methodology of assessing workplace culture, using GPTW’s globally validated survey instrument known as Trust Index and by conducting the culture audit. As part of the assessment, GPTW Institute assessed Walmart’s people-related management practices using Great Place to Work People Practice Culture Audit framework, and measured the perceptions of associates using Great Place to Work Trust Index Employee Survey.
"We are very proud to have earned a place in the list of Great Place to Work and most importantly being recognised among top 10 Best Places to Work in Retail in 2018. This is indeed a huge recognition and validates that culture is our `competitive advantage'. Creating an inclusive, respectful, high-performance culture is the foundation of everything we do. It’s how we deliver superior member service, create a great front-line work environment and improve performance in order to achieve our common purpose of saving people money so they can live better. I take the opportunity to thank all our associates who are passionately upholding the culture everyday through actions and behaviours," Krish Iyer, president & CEO of Walmart India said.
"Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our business and culture. We ensure that our associates feel valued and respected. We hire, retain and develop the best talent by creating an environment where each and everyone has the opportunity to make a difference. Our programmes and policies help us create shared value and prosperity through education, inspiration and opportunity," added Iyer.
Walmart India was recently recognised as among 'The 2017 Working Mother & Avtar 100 Best Companies for Women in India'. The study was conducted to identify companies with the most favorable policies and practices to promote employment, retention and increasing participation of women in the workforce. (RR)
