Tervuren (July. 3, 2012)
SAS garnered the No. 3 spot on the elite Best Multinational Workplaces in Europe list from Great Place to Work®. The leader in business analytics software and services is cited for creating great workplaces across country borders, cultures and language differences. Companies on this list appear on three or more Best Workplaces lists in Europe.
"This honor confirms the success of our employee-oriented culture. Our employee-manager relationships are built on trust – across all levels and divisions. They help make SAS a great place to work," said Gunter Cools, SAS Human Resources Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Treating employees with respect fosters the environment of innovation and creativity that surfaces in our products and distinguishes us to our customers. Our employees exceed our expectations because they feel valued. Although the award is not a goal in itself, it is a very nice cherry on top of the cake."
"All companies recognized on Great Place to Work's Best Workplaces in Europe list have established trust-based work cultures that set the standard not only in Europe but around the world," said José Tolovi Jr., Chairman of the Board at Great Place to Work. "This achievement is a testament to the strength of the organizations' leadership and their commitment to building a great workplace regardless of country, industry or size. Whether economies are growing or under strain, these great companies recognize the importance of a workplace culture based on trust, pride and camaraderie and the positive impact this can have on business performance."
