Pitney Bowes, the technology company that provides commerce solutions in the areas of e-commerce, shipping, mailing, and data, today announced that it has been named one of India’s Best Companies to Work For by The Economic Times. This is the eighth time the company has been recognized with this honour which represents the most comprehensive employee survey of workplace culture conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute.
The survey and the Great Place to Work Institute celebrate companies and organizations that wish to maintain Best Company environments, those that are ready to dramatically improve the culture within their workplaces, and those in between the two. They know that organizations that build trust and create a rewarding cycle of personal contribution and appreciation create workplace cultures that deliver outstanding business performance.
For nearly 100 years, the remarkable long-term success of Pitney Bowes is the direct result of its culture of innovation, inclusion and community involvement, and the caliber of people its culture attracts and retains.
