On Friday January 21st, Great Place to Work® Institute celebrated the recent release of "The Great Workplace” and 14th Annual FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® List by ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. The Institute also marked the founding of their first affiliate offices in the Middle East and in Africa.
In honor of this occasion, Robert Levering, co-founder of the Institute, along with Jose Tolovi, Global CEO and Ricardo Lange, CEO of GPTW US, was joined by leaders from several workplaces that have been featured on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® List including John Veihmeyer of KPMG, Philip Hadley of FactSet, Steve Howe of Ernst & Young, Barry Salzberg of Deloitte, Bob Moritz of PwC, Rodger Riney from Scottrade, and Joe Trunfio of Atlantic Health, who rang the NYSE Closing Bell.
The Wall Street location was a fitting forum to celebrate the accomplishments of these great workplaces, as stock market analysis of the publicly-traded companies on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list has shown that the best companies have consistently outperformed the market by an average margin of more than 3:1.
