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.

With 93 hotels around the world and 60 new properties under development, career opportunities abound for Four Seasons’ workers. All jobs at the department head level and below are posted internally for a minimum of five days, and all interested applicants have to be interviewed before an offer can be made to an outside candidate. Nearly half (49%) of all positions are filled through internal promotion. One employee told us, “They promote from within often and encourage employees to pursue the field that interests or best suits them, even though it may require a transfer to another department or even another property.” Read the Great Place to Work review here.
