Great Place to Work® conducts the only public study in the space of workplace wellness to understand the building blocks of creating a workplace culture that fosters employee health and well-being, thus enabling high performance. The second year of this exclusive study on workplace wellness witnessed exemplary leadership at India Inc. as the country navigated through the tough second wave, followed by the third wave of the pandemic.

The research is based on a comprehensive and unique framework that provides a benchmark for both the organization and the individual employee. Workplace Wellness IndexTM studies and understands experiences of employees on six key levers that impact physical and psychological safety at the workplace. Well-being IndicatorTM is a short self-assessment that provides an understanding of the fitness, resilience and social indices of the employees and nudges them to take ownership of their own well-being.
