100 Best Companies to Work For

See our methodology and credits



To identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For, each year Fortune partners with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America.

Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.

To register for the 100 Best Companies to Work For list, which allows participation in all our Best Workplaces lists, including Millennials, Women, Diversity, and over a dozen additional lists, go to greatplacetowork.com/100Best.

Google/Alphabet is the No. 1 place to work for the seventh time in 10 years. Six newcomers include Veterans United at No. 30, Hilton Hotels at No. 56, and Slalom Consulting at No. 100. IKEA’s U.S. division returns to the list, along with GoDaddy and Sheetz.

This third generation family-owned life and health insurance company has undergone a mini culture revival recently. They handed out a wallet-sized pamphlet called the “AFA Hymnal” to make sure that everyone is on the same page about the company’s purpose, strategy, values and goals. Last year was the 19th consecutive year the company has met its AFA All-Colleague Bonus. Over $24 million was given back to employees, based on the firm’s financial performance. That’s a whopping average of more than $20k per employee! Ninety-five percent of the officers have come up through the ranks at AFA. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
