During the autumn of 2020, Great Place to Work extensively surveyed the Fonto team on five key values: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Based on the outcomes of this survey, Fonto is now officially a ‘Great Place to Work’! Fonto scored above the benchmark on each of the key values. Employees are proud to be part of the Fonto team. As one colleague puts it: “I often refer to all my colleagues as my other family.”
Trust, pride and pleasure
Great Place to Work examines the opinions of employees on five values that are linked to a firm’s performance: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Each year, Great Place to Work surveys over 7,000 companies in 60 countries. The results of the employee surveys are used to determine whether the criteria for being a good employer have been met. Only organizations that achieve the required minimum score of 70% are certified and may bear the title Great Place To Work. Taking everything into account, 100% of the Fonto employees say it is a great place to work, compared to an average of 88% of the employees at other certified companies in the Netherlands.
Taeke Kuyvenhoven, co-founder of Fonto: “This certification confirms our shared feeling that it’s great to be part of this team. In these uncertain times, with most people working from home, this gives us an extra boost to further improve as an employer.”
