Thank you for establishing a new global standard for thriving workplaces.”

The GEWA winners boast an engaged employee-to-disengaged employee ratio 11 times higher than the global average. While only 23% of employees worldwide and 33% of employees in the U.S. workforce are engaged, an impressive 70% of employees within winning GEWA organizations exhibit engagement.
