LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products, and a Salesforce partner, today announced that Rimini Street has earned the designation of Great Place to Work-Certified™ in Australia, New Zealand, and the US. Last year, Rimini Street was certified in India, Korea, and the UK.
Great Place to Work is an internationally recognized benchmark certification for organizations that go above and beyond to provide an exceptional employee experience. The certification is achieved by distributing a third-party survey which has to be completed each year for re-certification. The survey is sent to employees in a geographic area to measure employees’ satisfaction with their employer. The data is used in combination with an internal audit of an organization’s culture reported in an extensive culture brief. Great Place to Work organizations, the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and leadership behaviors, are proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification is not something that comes easily — it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “The certification is the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Rimini Street is one of the country’s best companies to work for.”
- 94% of US employees said, “I feel good about the ways we contribute to the community,” based on the Rimini Street Foundation’s extensive philanthropic work.
- 91% of Rimini Street employees in Australia and New Zealand reported that Rimini Street is a great place to work when more than 40% of New Zealanders are planning to quit their jobs. In Australia, one in five left their jobs in 2021, and 25% are considering it.
- 80% of the US Rimini Street employees said Rimini Street is a great place to work, compared to a 57% national average.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
US, Australia and New Zealand certifications Confirm Rimini Street a Great Place to Work
Rimini Street has excelled beyond its global Great Place to Work certifications, earning additional awards, including “Great Place to Work for Women” in the UK and “Best Leaders in Times of Crisis” in India – a recognition of the Company’s extensive support of its employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since its founding in 1992, Great Place to Work has used insights from the surveys of over 100 million employees to help shape global work culture by promoting trust, equity, and inclusion. By earning these accolades, Rimini Street joins a community of workplaces that exceed standards. Rimini Street uses the Great Place to Work insights to continually improve Rimini Street community experiences around the world.
“Rimini Street has now achieved global recognition as a great place to work. Our leaders are committed to creating a culture that promotes equal opportunity for all, and we are especially proud of our extraordinary colleagues around the world who fuel our culture of collaboration, inclusivity, and support,” said Seth Ravin, CEO and chairman of the board at Rimini Street.
