The annual award honors organizations whose Associate engagement results demonstrate they have one of the most productive and engaged workforces in the world.

“We are honored and thrilled to be recognized for continuing to cultivate a performance culture that values people. And we’re especially grateful for the ongoing work and dedication of our 72,000+ Associates worldwide,” said Aileen Richards, Vice President, P&O. “This honor demonstrates that we are well on our way to living our Principles and bringing the Associate concept to life”

According to Gallup, the world's top-performing companies help lead the global economy by engaging their workforces. “These companies understand that Associate engagement is a force that drives real business outcomes,” Gallup said. “The Gallup Great Workplace Award was created to recognize these excellent companies for their extraordinary ability to create an engaged workplace culture.”

“Without a doubt, our Associates are setting a new global standard for engagement,” said Aileen. “They are at the heart of our engagement success.”
