And then there's the culture: "Town halls held by black Googlers and allies, support for transgender workers, and unconscious-bias workshops (already attended by more than 70% of staff) help foster what employees say is a "safe and inclusive" workplace at this hive of high performers".

See the full list of the 2017 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For. "We are proud to support our Team Members in both their personal and professional lives, as a part of our commitment to being the most hospitable company in the world".

CEO Danny Wegman repeated what his dad, the late Robert Wegman, said in 1998, when the company was named to the inaugural 100 Best list.

For the sixth consecutive year, Google has earned the title of "world's best company to work" in a ranking bestowed by Fortune under Fortune 100 list. To be eligible for the list, a company must have at least 1,000 employees and have been in business for seven years. Great Place to Work research shows that list winners keep outperforming the stock market, beating industry rivals when it comes to talent retention and demonstrating higher levels of productivity than peers.


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. "It is the people of Four Seasons, their love of hospitality and the passion they bring to their work that have made this company legendary". Survey results are compared with peer organizations of like size and complexity and are highly reliable statistically.

The firm also was designated as one of the "Great Place to Work Legends".

There also is a Culture Audit management questionnaire from each company, detailing things like compensation and benefits, hiring practices, recognition, training and diversity programs. Through proprietary assessment tools, advisory services, and certification programs, including Best Workplaces lists and workplace reviews, Great Place to Work provides the benchmarks, framework, and expertise needed to create, sustain, and recognize outstanding workplace cultures.
