We’re thrilled to be recertified as a Great Place to Work, because the designation is based on feedback from the employees themselves. There is no better testament to our culture than that,” says Tom Guse, president, VFS USA. “We are big believers in trust-based leadership, and our workforce is engaged, connected and passionate.”
VFS USA received its first Great Place to Work certification in 2016, and reapplied for the designation in early 2018, submitting an application detailing company demographics, policies and practices. The final step in the recertification process was the Great Place to Work Trust Index Employee Survey, which was sent to more than 200 VFS employees across the USA to gather input.
"To achieve a great workplace culture, we need to have the right people in place, and encourage them to contribute and be innovative. Being recertified as a Great Place to Work is an indication that we're succeeding," says Jes Schneider, vice president, Human Resources, VFS Region Americas.
Great Place to Work Institute research shows that a high-trust, high-performance culture can help a company attract top talent as well as retain talent by promoting respect among colleagues and giving employees a deeper connection to their daily work.
