Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For...Google #1
Google is the No. 1 place to work for the eighth time in 11 years. This is the twentieth anniversary of Fortune’s list, and 12 companies have made the cut every year, including Publix, REI and Goldman Sachs.
There are also five newcomers: Pinnacle Financial Partners, SAP America, Delta Air Lines, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, and AT&T.
For the sixth year running, Google has landed the top spot on our list of the country’s Best Companies to Work For. The $75 billion tech titan is famous for luxe perks like free gourmet food, haircuts, and laundry services, of course. But it also takes a rigorous analytical approach to morale. It boosted its parental-leave policies, for example, after finding that mothers were leaving at higher rates—the result was a 50% reduction in attrition for working moms. And then there’s the culture: Town halls held by black Googlers and allies, support for transgender workers, and unconscious-bias workshops (already attended by more than 70% of staff) help foster what employees say is a “safe and inclusive” workplace at this hive of high performers.
