At this North Carolina business-analytics software maker, leadership’s focus on a healthy quality of life stands out. For instance, the company encourages employees to sweat it out at an on-site health care center, and an on-site childcare center means that busy parents can rest assured that their children are safe and cared for. One employee says, “SAS has been pioneering the quality work-life balance since the ’70s. Everyone participates in sports at lunch, inclusion groups across the company hold events regularly, and the work culture is stress-free.”
