Methodology

Companies on the 50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility list offer supportive programs and policies—and have created cultures where employees make great use of them because their leaders implicitly trust their people to do so.

Fortune asked Great Place to Work to determine the winners by examining their offerings and availability of telecommuting, flex-time, compressed work weeks, job sharing and phased retirement programs—and to recognize companies whose employees access these programs the most. Great Place to Work also surveyed more than 209,000 randomly-selected employees and asked them to describe their day-to-day work experiences. Employees rated their organizations on 21 different factors assessing companies' cultural support for flexibility and work-life balance. These factors take into account not only whether employees feel the work environment is flexible to them as individuals, but also whether sufficient communication, leadership and a level playing field are in place to ensure people who take advantage of this flexibility can be successful and contribute fully at work.

Two-thirds of each company's score is based on employees' survey scores and written comments, and one-third is based upon the presence and utilization of flexibility programs. Results from the survey are highly reliable, have a 95 percent confidence level, and a margin of error of 5 percent or less. These 50 companies were selected from a universe of nearly 600 Great Place to Work-certified organizations that are verified using Great Place to Work’s Trust Index, an anonymous 58-statement survey distributed at random to a statistically significant number of current employees.

More than ever, the workplace is in a state of disruption. For our first-ever flexibility list, we looked for employers that have welcomed the rapid change to how we work by offering job sharing, telecommuting, compressed workweeks, flexible scheduling, and phased retirement options to employees. Great Place to Work surveyed more than 209,000 workers in the U.S to find out who’s getting it right. Here are 50 great employers that have embraced the future of work—by making employees happy and flexible.

MAVERICK Technologies

“MAVERICK genuinely cares about the well-being of its employees and their families. Recently, I needed to take time off from work to care for my wife after surgery and management was quick to approve my request. They even sent flowers to my wife while she was in the hospital. Not every company with over 500 employees would be that concerned about each and every one in this way. This is just one example of how MAVERICK puts employees first. There may be times when a lot is asked of you, but they are just as willing to help you when you need it,” says one employee. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
