Indeed has released its top-rated 50 workplaces for 2019 and found that the companies that top the table all seem to share an enjoyable work environment.
Indeed put together this list by researching 150 million employee reviews and analysing those from companies that received a place on the Forbes 500 list.
The top 10 companies’ workplaces are:
- Southwest Airlines
- Live Nation
- Costco Wholesale
- Johnson & Johnson
Further research found that a positive work environment leads to more engaged workers, and more engaged workers can lead to a 20 per cent increase in productivity. This also makes employees 90 per cent more likely to stay in their current companies.
Paul D’Arcy, senior vice president at Indeed said:
These 50 organisations represent a very diverse list of exceptional workplaces, which tells us that being a great place to work has nothing to do with the sector, geography, or age of a company. Each of these companies have shown the importance of valuing their teams’ specific needs to create a desirable and productive work environment. Being a champion for your employees is a choice, and we at Indeed think it is important to recognise these companies for choosing to implement great workplace programs for their teams.
The top 10 list has some familiar names in it. Facebook has now placed in the top five for the third year running. Southwest Airlines has now placed in the top five for the fourth year running.
Airline, Delta is on the top 50 list for the fourth consecutive year. Delta recently received the best US airline by travel experts Fodor.
Indeed are happy to see the top 10 companies are a mix of different sectors with Adobe, Facebook, Intuit and Microsoft all being based in the tech sector. In addition to entertainment company Live Nation, ecommerce site eBay, and pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson.
