The venerable Norwegian firm that now specializes in videoconferencing, Tandberg, has emerged as one of the best places to work in a new survey of employees at firms all over the country. Also winning top honors were information technology firms SAS Institute and Miles.
Tandberg won in the category for companies with more than 250 employees, while SAS (not to be confused with the airline) won in the category for companies with 50 to 250 employees.
The annual survey of working conditions is carried out by the Great Place to Work Institute, in which 120 Norwegian companies took part.
The survey measures employee satisfaction with the organization, regarding their evaluations of management, whether they have confidence in company leadership, whether they’re proud of the place of work and how they regard fellowship among colleagues.
Other large companies in the Top 10 of those best regarded by employees were, in order, Sterla, Flytoget, Finn.no, Reitangruppen, Adecco, Bertel O Steen, Nycomed, Statnett and Eniro.
The other mid-sized companies ranking behind SAS Institute were Microsoft Norge, Kantega, Webstep, Abbott, UMOE Consulting, SAP, Cisco, Affecto and Devoteam da Vinci.
Among small companies, with less than 50 employees, IT consulting firm Miles emerged on top, followed by telecoms firm Canal Digital, info tech firm Iterate, financial services firm Optimum and recruitment firm Elan.
