Ujjivan ranks 2nd in the financial services industry as the Best Company to Work for, in the 2012 survey conducted by Great Place to Work Institute (India). Ujjivan continues to be among India's 25 Best Companies to Work for, across industries. This year, it also ranks 3rd in the leadership development category.
The 2012 survey was conducted across companies in India spanning various sectors and sizes, and including domestic players as well as MNCs. 514 companies met the strict eligibility criteria for the survey, which is based on best practices and employee feedback. A total of 80,000 employees across 21 sectors participated. The results give a first-hand feel of workplace culture from an employee perspective. The most essential measure of whether a company is a great workplace is whether employees say it is.
Top ranked companies in the survey were chosen based on criteria such as flexible working hours, fun at work, systematic career development, and work-life balance. The survey evaluated and compared organizations on various work place related parameters like credibility of leadership, respect for individuality and contribution, fairness and transparency in all practices and processes, camaraderie and a sense of belonging.
Vittal Rangan, Head of Human Resources said, "Microfinance is a people-centric industry. Our ranking showcases our commitment to build Ujjivan as a strong organization with values and a culture where employees are steadfastly focused serving the financially excluded poor".
Over the past few years, Ujjivan has consistently ranked among India's best companies to work for. Ujjivan is committed to building a company which is best in class in all aspects: customer service, innovation, efficiency, work place engagement, leadership, and governance.
