Today’s announcement builds on Rimini Street’s previous certifications covering India, Korea, and the UK, as well as Australia, New Zealand and the U.S., and celebrates Rimini Street’s global culture of collaboration, inclusivity and support for its exceptional workforce in today’s flexible workplace environment.
Great Place to Work is an internationally recognized benchmark for organizations that go above and beyond to provide an outstanding employee experience. The certification is achieved by distributing a third-party survey renewed each year to maintain certification. The completely anonymous survey is sent to all employees in a geographic area to measure their level of employee satisfaction. The data is used in combination with an internal audit of an organization’s culture reported in an extensive culture brief. After meeting the participating requirements, the results are analyzed by Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“Rimini Street has been recognized as a Great Place to Work throughout the world where we have colleagues, and we are committed to creating, nurturing and growing a culture that empowers our employees to thrive, succeed and innovate,” said Seth Ravin, CEO and chairman of the board at Rimini Street. “Our Company is home to a growing workforce of extraordinary, talented and experienced colleagues who passionately support our clients and each other while maintaining the highest levels of performance and execution. It is key to Rimini Street’s ability to attract and retain the best talent and to deliver unmatched service to our clients 24/7/365.”
