Verona Office Again Among Italy’s Best

The tradition continues! For the tenth time, Gore has ranked among the 35 Best Workplaces in Italy. The list, which was announced December 12, places Gore at Number 5 on the list of the best small and medium-sized workplaces in the country. Gore employs 93 associates in a sales office in Verona.

As with all the lists organized by the Great Place to Work Institute, the ranking is based on an assessment of company practices and an employee survey measuring trust in the organization. The survey is given the greatest weight. This year much of the narrative accompanying the list focused on themes drawn from the thousands of employee comments included in the survey. Among the “hot topics” were work/family balance and a preference for collaboration and healthy working relationships.

The highest-ranked large companies on the Italian list were kitchen range hood maker Elica, Procter & Gamble joint venture Fater, FedEx, Unilever and McDonald’s. In addition to Gore, the top five small and medium companies were food packager Tetrapak, Cisco, Microsoft and Nissan.
