April 3, 2019. Marseilles, France – VirtualExpo Group is one of the top 50 best workplaces in the category of French companies with 50 to 500 employees according to global research and consulting company Great Place to Work®. This marks the third consecutive year the company is named on the list.
On April 2nd, VirtualExpo Group received 29th place at the Great Place to Work® award ceremony in Paris. The prestigious ranking is based on a “Trust Index” survey which invites employees and managers to anonymously respond to a series of questions focusing on management, company trust, and work culture. Companies with at least 70% of positive responses are labeled a “Great Place to Work.” While the results of this survey represent two-thirds of the evaluation, the remaining third consists of a “culture audit”, which details the company’s HR processes and managerial practices.
