Bahrain-based Hilal Computers been certified as a Great Place to Work

Great Place to Work is the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures.  Through proprietary assessment tools, advisory services, and certification programs, Great Place to Work recognises the best workplaces across the world in a series of national lists including those published by Fortune magazine (USA) and in leading media across the Middle East. Great Place to Work provides the benchmarks, framework, and expertise needed to create, sustain, and recognise outstanding workplace cultures.

The certification was awarded after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Middle East. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.

The certification process began with an anonymous survey circulated to the employees of Hilal Computers. The responses were used to quantify employees’ experiences by analysing their responses based on several key performance indicators. Emphasis is given to an employee’s evaluation of their trust model with the employer as well as employee’s experience relevant to the work environment such as team building, employee benefits, and personal career growth to determine whether a company is truly a Great Place to Work.
