IPC among model companies selected by Commercial Workers’ Union of Reykjavík

The results of the largest employment market survey in Iceland are now in, and Iceland Prime Contractor is in 10th place among companies with 50 or more employees. In 2002, when the Company last made the Commercial Workers’ Union of Reykjavík (VR) list, it was in 88th place. In order to qualify for the list, the response ratio to the survey must be at least 35%.

VR has carried out a survey of members’ attitudes toward their place of work for many years. This year, the questionnaire was sent to some 19,000 union members, in addition to over 4,000 workers from other companies that offered its employees the chance to participate, irrespective of whether they were VR members or not. Capacent Gallup administered the “Companies of the Year 2008” survey.

In the survey, employees were asked to evaluate their place of work. Categorisation of the results reveals seven key criteria on which the total score is based. These are: management credibility, wage terms, working conditions, flexibility, autonomy in the workplace, pride and image of company, and atmosphere. Each criterion is given a score ranging from 1 to 5. The sum of these scores represents the company’s total score.
