PUNE, INDIA, June 28th, 2022 – Great Place to Work® India has honoured Randstad RiseSmart as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in India, coming in at number 39 on the list of India’s Top 50 Great Mid-size Workplaces 2022. Earning a spot on this prestigious list and receiving the recognition as a Great Place to Work for a third successive year solidifies our mission at Randstad RiseSmart to be one of the best employers to work for in India. Randstad Risesmart is the only one in its industry to win this prestigious award.
In the study, Great Place to Work® observed that the Great Mid-size Workplaces have gone above and beyond to create and sustain aspirational organisations. The leadership effectiveness is visible in these workplaces that are fostering a culture of fairness and originality while offering flexibility to their employees in the current hybrid work environment. Organisations that succeed in establishing high-trust, high-performance cultures and maximizing human potential by bridging experience gaps will be Great Places to Work For All in the future.
“To be re-certified as a Great Place to Work for a third successive year, and still be the only talent business to appear is hugely significant. Last time I credited our high-performing teammates and dedicated managers across the company, and my sentiments remain true,” said Joel Paul, Managing Director for Randstad RiseSmart, Asia-Pacific, and IMEA. “As we accept our placement at 39th in the Top 50 mid-size businesses in India this year, I am filled with the same joy as when we achieved our first certification. We remain committed to improving worklife for our employees and finding ways for RiseSmart to become an even more satisfying workplace for passionate teammates in India."

In its 6th edition this year for India, the list has grown to Top 75 from Top 50 until last year. This is a result of the increase that the research has seen from organisations across sectors volunteering to be a part of this exclusive annual study. The rigorous methodology to assess workplace culture identifying India's Great Mid-size Workplaces 2022 is considered the gold standard globally. These listed organisations among other practices particularly excel both in people practices that they have crafted for their employees and proactively act on the feedback to create a High Trust Culture. The report and the complete list (in alphabetical order) of India’s Great Mid-size Workplaces 2022 can be viewed here.
“Workplaces of today have undergone a drastic change, where they’ve become a mix of physical and digital. We’re likely to experience workplaces that will be designed to foster creativity and innovative thinking as organisations increasingly invest in digital transformative interventions. Great Mid-size Workplaces are aware of the current global workforce challenges and are going beyond traditional practices to create aspirational workplaces that can engage a multi-generational workforce. They foster a culture of Flexibility, Originality, Fairness propelled by Effective Leadership Behavior.
Great Mid-size Workplaces are becoming more inclusive and collaborative. Employees at mid-size organisations who feel they have special and unique benefits in the organisation are 2.7x times more likely to feel it’s a fun place to work. Efforts are also being made to establish credibility, display integrity, and provide career opportunities. On average, the mid-size organisations are planning to add 35% more employees in the next 12 months than their current employee count.
However, balancing between innovation and burnout will be the focus area for the leaders. As employees return to the office, extraordinary leadership will be more important than ever to focus on meaningful initiatives.
“The assessment statement “management involves people in decisions that affect their job or work environment”, has seen an 8% increase in positive responses over the last year continuing a trend of significant improvement in this area over the past two years. When employees feel engaged in a caring workplace culture, their pride, performance, and loyalty skyrocket the company to hypergrowth,” said Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO, Great Place to Work®, India. “Congratulations to all our winners for this coveted recognition, the journey of Making India a Great Place to Work For All is only getting started.”
