I’m always pretty excited every year when Fortune unveils the new 100 Best Companies to Work For list. The 2017 list is no exception; in fact today I’m going to look a bit deeper into why these companies are scoring big with their workers.
It seems the majority of the companies on this list not only take their employee’s needs into consideration, they actually act on them, which is a smart move. It may be they realize attracting and keeping the most talented employees involves more than just traditional salary and benefits.
I’ve written this post so that you can use it two ways. First, I’ve linked to a map of the 100 best companies to work for, so if you live near one of their biggest locations, you can take a look and determine if those companies are a fit for you.
Second, even if you don’t live within commuting distance from one of these great companies, you can use the information in this post to help you evaluate companies you might enjoy working for. Create a filter of what you are looking for in your “dream employer” where you live.
