“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” as the saying goes.
Unfortunately, for many, this is a pipe dream.
Many factors go into achieving a happy, healthy and fruitful career. Potential employees consider an organization’s diversity and inclusion efforts, overall culture, benefits programs, career advancement opportunities, paid leave or perks offered.
Fortune , in partnership with Great Place to Work, recently released its 21st annual list of the “100 best companies to work for.” It recognizes organizations offering amazing career opportunities in an environment that is equally great.
Fortune describes how the list is compiled:
Our list surveys millions of employees in more than 50 countries to better understand why people love their work and workplaces. It audits companies’ benefits and people programs and ensures that every demographic group in an organization rates them with high scores. And it grades companies on six components: values, innovation, financial growth, leadership effectiveness, maximizing human potential, and trust.
Salesforce topped this year’s list. Known for its “Ohana” (which is Hawaiian for “family”) mentality, it reached No. 1 for the first time. Among the many factors that earned Salesforce the designation were paying a total of $5.5 million to employees who referred new hires and offering 56 paid hours annually for employees to volunteer.
Here are the top 10 organizations on the list:
- Wegmans Food Markets
- Ultimate Software
- The Boston Consulting Group
- Edward Jones
- Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants
