SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE today announced that Salesforce tops the 2018 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for the company's success in creating a Great Place to Work For All, driven by its commitments to workplace equality and community service.
Applying new "For All" methodology to FORTUNE's 100 Best Companies list has produced significantly different results in the rankings. For the first time in 7 years, there's a new # 1.
In making today's announcement Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work said, "Central to our new approach is Maximizing Human Potential. We now assess how well companies create a consistently positive experience for all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. We did this to reflect the reality of the world today, and to recognize and learn from the inclusive organizations that are setting the pace. Not just for moral reasons, but for business reasons. Companies that rate most highly according to our new 'For All' standard grow revenue three times faster than their less-inclusive rivals. In other words, while trust fuels business performance at great workplaces, 'For All' accelerates it. Today we celebrate the 100 Best Companies that are leading the way in building an outstanding culture for all."
The Top Ten Best Companies:
- Wegmans Food Markets
- Ultimate Software
- Boston Consulting Group
- Edward Jones
- Kimpton Hotels
- Hyatt Hotels
- Kimley-Horn and Associates
This year Great Place to Work employed new methodology using six metrics--Values, Trust, Innovation, Financial Growth, Leadership Effectiveness, and Maximizing Human Potential-- to take a more accurate reading of how a company's great workplace culture translates to its growth and corporate excellence. Each company was scored after a review of their employee surveys and culture audit.
Great Place to Work surveyed more than 310,000 employees across all sectors of the economy, assessing 50-plus elements of the workplace. These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and workplace traits linked to innovation. The ranking accounted for the experiences of all employees including women, people of color, LGBT individuals, older team members, and disabled employees.
