Companies of all sizes took part in the latest industry competition organized by the international certification platform Great Place to Work®. They voluntarily agreed to undergo an independent audit of their workplace culture by the Great Place to Work® institute and the judgment of their own employees. Topics covered in the extensive survey – encompassing around 70 questions – included team spirit, fairness, appreciation, respect, and trust in managers. Almost three quarters of the ZEISS Vision Care workforce took part. 85 percent of them agree with the statement that ZEISS is a good or very good place to work.

"We take the award as an incentive to continue to develop as a company and team – while offering positive opportunities and prospects for each individual. All teams have identified potential and agreed on specific measures to make us even better as the best employer," says Beale.

Locations worldwide recognized as Great Place to Work® due to positive survey results

A further 15 ZEISS Vision Care locations worldwide took part in the survey. Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, the Republic of Korea and Mexico also received the Great Place to Work® award at the first attempt. The company scored particularly well internationally in terms of pride, fairness, and corporate image.
