Workplace culture is about more than flashy amenities.
Employees want to work at an organization that promotes creativity and originality and fosters professional growth.
Entrepreneur, with Energage, released the third annual “Top Company Cultures List,” which features U.S. organizations that excel at staff engagement, provide opportunities for career growth and bring out the best in their employees.
It explains its methodology:
We measured these companies focusing on 24 factors across seven areas: alignment, effectiveness, connection, management, engagement, leadership and basics, including pay, benefits and training.
In February, in an article on its website calling for applicants, Entrepreneur described the organizations it was in search of:
No, we aren’t looking for businesses that brag about their nap pods, kegs or Ping Pong tournaments. Rather, our Top Company Cultures list celebrates cultures that help employees excel by encouraging them to take their career to the next level, fosters innovation, exceeds expectations and gets results.Our Top Company Cultures list dives into four integral areas of a business: the basics (including work-life balance, training and expectations), engagement, leadership and the health of the organization.
The list was split into three categories, based on number of employees at the organization: small (35–74), medium (75–299) and large (300 or more).
