Celebrating Workplace Excellence: DysrupIT’s Great Place To Work® Journey

Last August 2023, DysrupIT™ got certified as a Great Place To Work®, further cementing the company’s commitment to creating an exceptional workplace for our valued family members.

As a family-run organisation specialising in cloud and Resource-as-a-Service solutions, DysrupIT™ is immensely proud of this distinction. Within less than a decade of operation, the company earned the Great Place To Work® certification, demonstrating that it has successfully realised its long-held vision of providing a happy, healthy, engaging, inclusive, and empowering workplace for the DysrupIT™ family.

Andrew McCarroll, DysrupIT’s Chief Executive Officer, proudly states, “This accomplishment reflects the dedication of our outstanding teams, validating our company’s capabilities and reaffirming our market reputation as a trusted and respected player. The certification has far-reaching benefits, producing a win-win scenario where happy team members deliver exceptional results, benefiting all stakeholders. We are fully committed to replicating and surpassing this success in the future.”

How We Got Certified – The Process

The Great Place To Work® Certification acknowledges employers who excel in providing an exceptional employee experience. Achieving this requires a two-step process. The initial step involves soliciting employee feedback through a confidential and anonymous survey, allowing them to respond truthfully. The survey ran for two weeks and garnered a 94% employee participation rate. Meanwhile, the second step entails completing a brief questionnaire about the workforce. Since the certification scores come from employee feedback and independent analysis, the Great Place To Work® certification is a valuable tool for job seekers to identify companies that foster a great company culture.

The Results


Great Place To Work® delivered the overwhelmingly positive results days after the survey’s conclusion. DysrupIT™ takes great pride in offering its employees a Work from Anywhere (WFA) setup, emphasising a healthy work-life balance. The management team, although optimistic about their vision, was pleasantly surprised by the resounding affirmation from their employees.

DysrupIT™ achieved an impressive score of 87%, surpassing the certification threshold of 65%. Employees ranked Corporate Image and Community the highest, earning a score of 90%. These results should come as no surprise since DysrupIT™ employees appreciate the company for:

  • Fostering a healthy work-life balance.
  • Demonstrating a commitment to inclusivity, where everyone is treated fairly, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
  • Trusting their employees to do good work without constant supervision.
  • Making significant contributions to the community.

These findings instil a profound sense of value and belonging among the DysrupIT™ team. When the Management trusts the employees to perform their roles without micromanagement, it empowers and motivates the people to strive for excellence and deliver exceptional results.

Advantages of a Great Place To Work® Certification

DysrupIT™ and other companies certified as a Great Place To Work® enjoy several benefits following its recognition.

First, the certification boosts the company’s appeal to top talent, resulting in higher chances of candidates accepting job offers. Secondly, a certified positive workplace culture increases business profitability, as happy and satisfied employees are more productive, innovative, and committed, positively improving their performance.

Third, a company certified as a Great Place To Work® improves employee trust, which fosters communication, loyalty, and community. And since people feel a sense of belonging, the positive work environment and culture will encourage employees to stay.

Moreover, stakeholders reap benefits when companies get certified as a Great Place To Work®. DysrupIT’s certification further strengthens customer trust, as clients prefer to work with businesses that treat their employees well.

More importantly, stakeholders benefit from improved product and service offerings because a happy and motivated workforce consistently delivers better outputs.

Collectively, these advantages contribute to a more positive and impactful relationship among the company, its employees, and its stakeholders. As McCarroll aptly said, “It’s a win-win scenario.”
