Fatema Moriam Nisha, Head of People, Culture & Diversity said
“Research has proven that the definition of a great workplace is one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with. We are immensely proud to receive this recognition from the Great Place to Work institute. The Certification is recognised by employers and employees globally and is considered the gold standard in identifying and recognising a great workplace culture.”
Accreditation required SMEC to undergo a rigorous audit conducted by Great Place to Work which required various steps. The process starts with a ‘trust index assessment’ and employee survey. The survey helps to precisely measure the underlying level of trust within the organisation, while making targeted recommendations on areas to improve.
The survey is conducted online where employees respond to a set of qualitative and quantitative questions covering five dimensions – credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. The results are then tabulated and analysed across various demographic categories for the organisation to understand what initiatives can be taken to build a better workplace culture.
The Ghana Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources has appointed SMEC to investigate a long-term Sanitation Strategy in the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area (GKMA). The project is an extension of the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area Sanitation and Water Project. The project aims to increase access to sanitation and create a healthier urban environment.
