Employers with the strongest workplace environments tend to make the most investments in workplace and employee initiatives, according to a survey by global public relations and communications firm Burson-Marsteller and global research training firm Great Place to Work.

The research offers an analysis on the perceived return-on-investment employers experience from employee investments, including employee education programs focusing on the brand's mission and values, career development programs and work-life balance programs.

Another 95 percent of respondents say external and internal recognition for workplace initiatives positively influences company performance.
