NetApp 4th best place to workNetApp has been named the fourth ‘Best Place to Work in the World’ by Great Place to Work.

This is the fifth year in a row that the technology provider has earned a coveted top five position within the prestigious annual list and it follows its first placed award as the ‘Best Multinational Workplace’ in Europe, received earlier this year.

The World’s Best Multinational Workplaces’ list, compiled by Great Place to Work, features 25 companies and is the largest global annual study of workplace excellence. It represents the most definitive recognition of global employer of choice and workplace culture quality that an organisation can possess. To qualify, companies must have been ranked in at least five national Great Place to Work Lists, have at least 5000 employees worldwide and count at least 40% of their global workforce (or 5,000 employees) outside of their home country.

NetApp’s ‘unique’ culture, identified as a competitive differentiator that unites employees worldwide, has secured the brand a top five placement for the last five consecutive years.

Frank Abbenhuijis, Senior Director Human Resources EMEA, said: “It is the daily job of our leadership to ensure that our employees understand NetApp’s purpose, the value that we bring to our customers, and the critical role that our employees play. This is the foundation for creating a workplace where people can do their best job.

“We interpret our positioning as a testament that our employees really care about their work and their company. We strongly believe that it is because of our unique and friendly culture which enables employees to be at their best and ultimately help us to be perceived as a teammate our customers and partners can count on.”

As well as being awarded the number one spot in Europe, within the last 12 months NetApp has also scored top position in Greater China and Germany, has been named the second best employer in Austria, third best in Switzerland, fourth in Canada and fifth across Asia.  It also made the list of the top ten best employers in Australia, Japan and the Netherlands.
