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

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.

Nearly half of all jobs at this healthcare system, with five hospitals in the Atlanta area, are filled through internal promotion. Not only that, more than 70% of all promotions into leadership roles go to women. The WellStar Career Development Center serves every team member, clinical and non-clinical: full-time hourly employees take an average of 64 hours of training per year; for salaried employees, it’s 120. “They have seen my potential, and they have allowed me to take on more responsibilities in each role I have held in my department which led to a promotion I didn’t even know existed,” one employee told us.
