Frequently Asked Questions: Great Place to Work's Best Workplaces Lists

Who is Great Place to Work?

Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation. We help companies around the world survey their employees, benchmark their results, identify gaps and improve their workplace culture. Ours is the only national recognition program based on a rigorous methodology and validated employee feedback.

Who’s eligible for Great Place to Work's Best Workplaces lists?

In general, U.S. companies that:

  • Have at least 10 full- and/or part-time employees
  • Are Great Place to Work-Certified as of the list deadline
  • To become Certified, companies must survey their employees using our flagship assessment, the Trust Index©, and complete a Culture Brief.

Certain lists may require more employees (50+). Please contact us for specifics if you’re interested in a particular list.

How are Best Workplaces selected?

We use our For All Model and Methodology to evaluate our pool of Great Place to Work-Certified companies. Top-performing companies are recognized as Best Workplaces.

What happens if I don’t make the list?

First, rest assured, we keep results completely confidential. We never disclose the names of companies who participate in the process but do not get recognized. You have nothing to lose.

While it's disappointing not to be recognized for a list you’re really interested in, going through the process is still extremely valuable.

You gain the benefits of employee feedback and can use our helpful reports and analytics to gain actionable insights about your business. We have Culture Coaches available if you’d like a little expert support along the way. And when you’re ready, try again!

What you should know

Salesforce demonstrates its commitment to being better for business, better for people, and better for the world in many ways, from how it welcomes people into the company to building green-friendly workspaces to giving back to the communities it serves.

New team members at Salesforce are given a warm welcome through various practices, including the New Hire Success Chatter Group. The online platform was created to help new hires get up to speed fast. They can post questions and receive answers from experts within the company. If a question goes unanswered for more than two hours, a helpdesk ticket is generated prompting a quick follow-up.

The company has a goal of running on 100% renewable energy in its quest to provide a healthy workspace for its people that limits its impact on the environment. It installed filtered water taps in all of its office taps, which provide cold, hot, and carbonated water. The company also provides all employees with their own bottle or cup, eliminating its monthly standing order of 5,000 bottles of still water. Employees have provided additional input on green initiatives, like its program that recycles batteries and printer cartridges.

Salesforce is dedicated to having a positive impact on the world through volunteer efforts like CoderDojo, a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programing clubs for young people ages 7-17. Salesforce’s UK team recently launched a CoderDojo in Kenya and it also recently held the first-ever dojo for the visually impaired, making sure that every child has the opportunity to learn how to code.

Employee Comments

"They really go above and beyond to make sure that each employee feels included and needed, and to make sure that we all have what we need to be successful. And the fact that they promote giving back to the community and encourage time away from work to do volunteer work is something I've never heard of anywhere else."
"There is a sense of inspiration that comes from the leadership taking strong positions on social issues and making volunteerism such a key part of our culture. This sustains us during the difficult times."
"Very committed to changing the communities around us with real hours invested, real money, and real dedication. I'd never seen or worked for an organization that truly put its substantial money where its mouth is for the betterment of others, until I came here and witnessed it firsthand."

What you should know

Hilton focuses on taking care of the heart of its business – its people – through its Thrive@Hilton program, a partnership with Thrive Global. It focuses on caring for the whole person, mind, body, and soul, through programs dedicated to improving sleep, reducing stress, increasing mindfulness, and encouraging great work through innovation and professional development.

Another opportunity within the program is Thrive Sabbatical. Each year, 10 team members receive a four-week sabbatical with salary and benefits continuation, and a stipend of $5,000 to pursue a philanthropic project (Give a Dream) or achieve a personal goal (Live a Dream). This provides team members with the opportunity to give back to the community and enrich the lives of others through a philanthropic or volunteering activity of their choice.

The company provides opportunities for unemployed young people to enter the workforce, with a goal to help a million people reach their potential by 2019. The program is called Open Doors and it is designed to give young people job and life skills, and experience with the hospitality industry. Since 2012, Hilton has committed $7 million to its partnership with the International Foundation for Youth (IFY) to improve the wellbeing of young people around the world and tackle youth unemployment. .
