Drillers of black gold still dominate this year’s list of great workplaces in manufacturing, despite foundering oil prices. (The cost of a barrel has halved to less than $50 from around $100 since 2010—a boon to industries such as airlines, a bane to ones like energy exploration.) To determine which companies in the broadly-defined manufacturing industry have the happiest workforce, we asked our research partners at Great Rated!, the premiere workplace review site maintained by Great Place to Work, to survey thousands of employees in that space. So what’s most important to workers at automotive distributors, oil & gas producers, medical device makers, and food manufacturers? A commitment to workplace safety, job training and development, and profit sharing, for starters. Read on to learn more about how those in manufacturing maintain work-life balance.
