Latest award to recognise Autodesk's employee-friendly practices 

Autodesk has been named as one of Europe's best workplaces. It was ranked 17th in the multinational company category by the Great Place to Work® Institute’s annual study of workplace excellence, which identifies the top 100 organisations to work for in Europe.

The award, announced at a ceremony in Berlin last night, follows Autodesk’s high positions in the UK, Switzerland and Germany Great Place to Work® rankings. In addition, Autodesk has achieved excellent results in the US Fortune 100 and Canada awards, plus the China Top Employers 2012 CRF Institute award. The European study cites Autodesk’s focus on innovation and collaboration as a key reason for this success.

Autodesk’s software enables designers and engineers to fully experience and test their ideas virtually on screen before they are built in the real world. The company is passionate about helping customers create their best possible work and believes that engendering a spirit of collaboration between employees where new ideas can develop freely is a first step towards this aim.

“This is an outstanding success for Autodesk in its first year in participating in the programme,” says José Tolovi, Jr, global CEO, Great Place to Work®. Companies recognised by Great Place to Work® Europe Best Workplaces have established trust-based cultures that set the standard not only in Europe, but around the world.

“Our employees are able to look at some of the world’s most famous buildings, iconic consumer products, vital infrastructure or Oscar-winning film effects and know that Autodesk software has played a key role in their design. This helps to create a spirit of collaboration, personal achievement and loyalty to the company” says Matthew Jeffery Autodesk’s head of talent acquisition in Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We’re thrilled to have been recognised as one of Europe’s best places to work, thanks to their hard work, dedication and talent.”
