Attracting and maintaining top talent is an operational necessity. But it remains a constant challenge for companies in every industry in today’s hyper competitive job market.
To uncover the best places to work, Fortune once again conducted its annual ranking of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” produced in conjunction with Great Places to Work.
The people analytics firm conducting America’s largest ongoing annual workforce study, representing more than 4.3 million employees this year alone. Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees report about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do.
These experiences are analyzed relative to each organization’s size, workforce, and what’s typical in their industry and region.
To be considered, companies must submit an application documenting over 200 data points describing their HR programs and practices. Great Place to Work then conducts a confidential survey of each company’s workforce.
The entire 100 company cross industry ranking can be found here. Below is a quick look at the six retailers that made the prestigious annual ranking.
