Over 350 companies of all industries and sizes participated in this benchmarking research by the Great Place to Work Institute assessing their culture and attractiveness as an employer
Basel, Switzerland – 4 May 2017 –Yerra Solutions AG, a global provider of innovative solutions for in-house legal & IP, eDiscovery and compliance, has been ranked as the 5th Best Employer in Switzerland in its size category in the Great Place to Work 2017 research study. The research study, conducted annually, was based on an independent assessment evaluating central work place topics such as trust, team building, professional development, management style, quality of leadership and work-life balance. It included an anonymous survey of all employees of Yerra Switzerland and an in-depth assessment of the company’s leadership and policies.
Given that Yerra was founded in 2013 and is just over four years old, its ranking number 5 of similar-sized companies in Switzerland is especially noteworthy.
“This is a proud moment for Yerra in Switzerland and around the world,” notes Nadine Stuttle, Managing Director Switzerland for Yerra Solutions. “As a company, we firmly believe that when our team is thriving, Yerra will do well and when Yerra is doing well, the team should benefit. Having independent recognition that we are building a culture that matches our vision is a huge validation.”
“The award stands for credible management, which works with its employees respectfully and fairly, enjoys strong alignment between staff and the company’s vision and represents strong teambuilding.” says Michael Hermann, Managing Director at Great Place to Work.
An example of the employee feedback received in the survey is this quote by an attorney and compliance analyst on our team in Zurich:
“Yerra was my entry card in the Swiss Financial Market and probably one of the best work opportunities I came across in the last years. A company made of clever, well-educated, and innovative people with a 'can-do' attitude. What makes Yerra unique is a multicultural and united team, with a familiar touch. A company where we feel we work as one and not for one. Not only was I able to progress in one year, as I was given the chance to improve myself with trainings in areas of my choice. Working with different cultures, in different countries and continents is also a plus!”.
