Diverse industries in the Fortune 500 with strong company cultures ranked highest by employees
AUSTIN, TX (July 6, 2017) – Indeed, the world’s number one job site, debuted today the 50 best companies to work for in 2017, curated from the site’s millions of company reviews from employees. Salesforce, the world’s #1 customer relationship management software, took the top spot on Indeed’s list for the second consecutive year. Airline innovator Southwest Airlines also reclaimed the second place ranking.
“Companies with disruptive business models and progressive company cultures will continue to attract and retain top talent,” said Indeed SVP Paul D’Arcy. “While compensation and job security are always top of mind for employees, we are seeing strong company culture and sense of community becoming just as much of a priority.”
While there is a range of industries featured on the list, including tech, finance, healthcare, consumer products, retail, and airlines, there are similarities seen throughout reviews written by employees that stand out.
“We are seeing people describe these exemplary workplaces as ‘inspiring’ and ‘engaging’ by maintaining excellent company culture, ensuring quality leadership, and offering competitive pay and benefits,” said D’Arcy. “Employees also praise the companies on this list for being mission-driven organizations that are leaders in their respective industries.”
New to the top ten, JetBlue Airways – ranked #21 on last year’s list curated by Indeed – skyrocketed to take the #3 spot this year. Similarly, CenterPoint Energy moved up from last year’s #37 ranking to #6 for 2017. Newcomers make up half of this year’s list, with companies like Estee Lauder (#21), Stryker (#26), Capital One (#27), John Deere (#30), and American Airlines (#30) making their debut as one of Indeed’s Best Places to Work in 2017.
