Pune, India – March 26, 2019 – Every year, more than 10,000 organizations from over 58 countries partner with Great Place to Work® Institute for assessment, benchmarking, and planning actions to strengthen their workplace culture.

“It is a privilege to be certified as a Great Place to Work® once again,” said Henry Morris, Chief Operating Officer at iPlace. “We are constantly striving to build an inclusive, diverse, and performance-based culture at iPlace. The credit goes to all the iPlacers who have worked so hard to build our company.”

iPlace is managed using a very innovative company operating system called LaunchPad, which has been a driver of the company’s growth. The underpinning of LaunchPad is gamification. LaunchPad is the platform through which employees are assigned work strategies, obtain pay increases and promotions, receive training and professional development, and even improve their health and wellness. As a result, iPlace’s employees are more engaged, feel more in control, achieve higher levels of performance, are happier, and stay with the company longer. Because of LaunchPad, iPlace has been able to eliminate performance reviews.
Other initiatives include the WeMakeaDifference Corporate Social Responsibility program and iPlay company-sponsored sport tournaments. These programs foster camaraderie, team spirit and a sense of pride in being an iPlacer. As a result, iPlace has one of the highest rates of employee retention.
“I have been working with iPlace for over twelve years and have grown with the company. We always knew iPlace was an awesome place to work, but being certified as a Great Place to Work sums up why employees feel excited to get up in the morning and come to work,” said Daniel Rogers, Vice President – International Businesses at iPlace.
