To be eligible for the World's Best Workplaces list, a company must apply and be named to a minimum of five national Best Workplaces lists within Great Place to Work's current 58 countries, have 5,000 employees or more worldwide, and at least 40% of the company's workforce (or 5,000 employees) must be based outside of the home country. Extra points are given based on the number of countries where a company surveys employees with the Great Place to Work Trust Index(c), and the percentage of a company's workforce represented by all Great Place to Work surveys globally. Candidates for the 2017 World's Best Workplaces list will have appeared on national workplaces lists published in September 2016 through August 2017.
The 25 companies that make up the 2017 World's Best outshined the rest in their commitment to continuous improvement and their forward-thinking approach to company culture. The sense of pride which employees feel about working for these companies is matched by the feeling of friendliness and camaraderie, showing that great workplace culture supports performance.
"The World's Best Workplaces are impressive not only in their scale, but in how they care for and nurture employees. These companies realize that high-trust environments and high-performance cultures are not mutually exclusive, but mutually dependent," says Great Place to Work CEO, Michael C. Bush.
