After taking first place in Europe as “Best Multinational Workplace” earlier this year, NetApp has also been recognised as number four of the Best Places to Work in the World.
Frank Abbenhuijs, senior director human resources EMEA, explains why this is significant for NetApp:  “It is the daily job of our leadership to ensure that our employees understand NetApp’s purpose, the value that we bring to our customers, and the critical role that our employees play. This is the foundation for creating a workplace where people can do their best job. We interpret our positioning as a testament that our employees really care about their work and their company.
“We strongly believe that it is because of our unique and friendly culture which enables employees to be at their best and ultimately help us to be perceived as a teammate our customers and partners can count on.”
NetApp has been named number four on the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list by Great Place to Work. This is the fifth consecutive year that NetApp has been named to this list of 25 companies and the fifth year in the top five. The World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list is the largest global annual study of workplace excellence. The list represents the most definitive recognition of global employer of choice and workplace-culture quality that a company can have.
