How to Know if a Company is a Good Place to Work

Posted by Tilt Recruitment on July 29, 2022

It’s not always easy to tell if a company will be a good place to work, especially if you don’t know anyone who has had experience with them as an employee. Though there are sure to be reviews online, knowing which companies are good to work for isn’t easy. Thankfully, there are a number of things you can look out for during the interview process. These things should give you an idea as to whether the business is one that you will enjoy being a part of.


Signs a Company Will Be a Good Place to Work


It Has a Streamlined Interview Process – A smooth interview process is usually a sign that the company is organised and that you would be treated professionally as an employee. If a company struggles to provide a streamlined interview process, there is no guarantee that they will provide an enjoyable working environment once you have been hired. If a company goes out of their way to ensure that you are taken care of and valued throughout the interview process, this is a sign that they are likely to have the same enthusiasm for you as an employee. You should also pay attention to how the interviewers interact with one another, as this can give an insight into how the team works on a day-to-day basis. An interviewer talking enthusiastically and positively about the company is a good sign that they enjoy who they work for.


A Welcoming Workspace – It’s always a good idea to request a tour of the workspace at one of the later interview stages, as this will give you a good insight into where you will be spending a lot of your time. It’s unlikely that you will want to work in a grey and full office, so check that the company has a bright and colourful workspace. It’s a good way to get a feel for the cultural and social side of the company, as well as to gauge whether they value the happiness of employees during their time at work. A company with a vibrant office that showcases awards and encourages personal touches is likely to be one that values employees.


It Pays Attention to Employee Feedback – Regardless of how successful and established a company is, someone is bound to make a mistake along the way. How a company solves these issues says a lot about whether or not it’s a good place to work. For example, paying attention to employee feedback is a key way for a company to realise its shortcomings and to highlight areas where it’s lacking in some way. Even if a problem cannot be resolved immediately, a good employer will use employee feedback to put changes in motion. Implementing employee ideas and using feedback to improve the working environment is a sign that a company is a good place to work.


It Invests in Employee Development – If you are someone who hopes to develop and grow your career, you should look out for signs of employee development investments. By having an interest in employees’ careers, a company is showing that they value professional development on an individual basis. This can help to improve your CV, but it’s also likely to mean the company is one that you will want to stay at for many years. Employees staying at the company for a long time and completing different training programs is a good sign that they are willing to invest in workers, rather than simply hiring from outside.


It Builds Strong Working Relationships – At a company, everyone must work together as a team. Though you don’t need to become best friends with your colleagues, you should enjoy working with them on a professional level at the very least. A company that fosters these working relationships is one that’s worth paying attention to. There’s a lot that a company can do to ensure employees are working well together, such as organising team activities and activities outside of the workplace.
