Embassy Group ranks among Top 3 Real Estate brands in the ‘Best Companies to work for 2015’ survey
Bangalore, India – July 11, 2015: Embassy Group, India’s leading real estate developer, today announced that it has been ranked among the top 3 real estate brands in India, in the 2015 edition of India’s Best Companies To Work For rankings – a study by Great Place To Work® Institute and The Economic Times. Some of the key parameters were Pride, Trust and Loyalty which helped us rank among the top 3 in the real estate sector. This is an affirmation of the commitment towards creating and nurturing a great workplace. The study recognized Embassy Group as an epitome of a people centric organisation, steered by an experienced and professional management team, with deep expertise in real estate development and their respective functions.
The annual survey covered more than 700 Indian and multinational companies as well as not-for-profit organizations, from over 20 private and public sectors.
This was the twelfth year of the Great Place To Work® study in India and over 3300 employees across 24 organizations in the real estate sector responded to their employee survey. The study uses an employee–centric framework that measures the levels of Trust, Pride and Loyalty prevalent in an organization through Trust Index©, a proprietary employee tool developed by the Great Place To Work® Institute. Along with employee feedback, the study assessed management practices of the organisations using a people practice assessment framework. Embassy Group achieved high rankings across all these parameters to emerge as one of the most dynamic places to work in the real estate sector.
Commenting on the occasion, Jitu Virwani, Chairman and Managing Director, Embassy Group stated "We are extremely happy to have ranked in the top 3 in real estate in the ‘Best companies to work for 2015’ survey by the Great Place to Work Institute.
