SPND claims to be the only media company to feature yet again amongst the top 50 list for India’s Best Companies To Work For in 2016 having won this laurel for two consecutive years.

The award was presented by the global research media company in association with The Economic Times. Sony Pictures Networks Distribution India Pvt.

Sony Pictures Networks India CEO NP Singh said, “We are honoured to win this laurel yet again and I congratulate this outstanding team for their continuous efforts and contribution towards the organisation’s success. A company is a reflection of its people and it is a wonderful feeling when employees reciprocate the sentiment and vision that we have envisaged for the company.”

The Great Place to Work Institute is a firm that assists organisations to identify, create and sustain great workplaces through the development of high-trust cultures. In its 13 edition, India's Best Companies to Work For study attracted participation from 791 companies, ranging across 20 industries, including participation from 20 companies from the media industry alone. This study was done with the most rigorous, credible and comprehensive methodologies to identify organizations in achievement of their goals. Over 1,50,000 employees were surveyed, making it the largest survey of workplace culture in corporate India.

“Getting recognized as the No.1 Company in the media industry and receiving this honour for the second consecutive year is an incredible feeling and a moment of pride for us. It is a testament to our culture that fosters a great working environment. Our employees are our most valued asset and the reason we can accomplish our mission of exceeding expectations on every level, for our audiences, our partners, and the community. This recognition reflects our commitment and efforts to create fulfilling programs and career experiences for our employees,” added Sony Pictures Networks India president, distribution and sports business Rajesh Kaul.

According to the Institute's research, a great place to work is one where you trust the people you work for, take pride in what you do and enjoy the company of people you work with. At the best workplaces in India, 14% employees want to stay for a longer duration with the organization while 19% employees look forward to coming to work, as compared to others. It is an indisputable fact today that creating a great workplace is an integral part of an organization’s strategy.

It is indeed encouraging to receive this recognition yet again and we will strive to continue being an employer of choice.”

At SPND the work environment is all inclusive which is built through day-to-day relationships that employees experience and not just a checklist of programs and benefits.

Performance at SPND is recognized and rewarded, where employees are felicitated by the CEO and President of the company at an annual event.
