These companies have the best workplace cultures, according to employees

Despite global downturn in 2020, the world’s top organisations are continuing to invest in their people. Today, they’re reaping the benefits of a positive workplace culture. The results prove the importance of having the right employee programmes in place, according to a survey by workplace data specialist Comparably.com.

The firm released an inaugural list of 50 companies with highly rated global cultures. The rankings, which were based on employee feedback, aim to give job candidates “the most comprehensive and accurate representation of what it’s like to work at companies” with an international footprint.

“Nearly 20 different workplace culture categories were measured, from compensation, leadership, and work-life balance to professional development opportunities, and perks and benefits,” analysts said. “All ratings were given during the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020 through March 2021), making this list especially relevant for job seekers looking for a great place to work with international locations.”

The list includes organisations that have consistently ranked high in past indexes for a range of achievements. Zoom, maker of the popular video conferencing app, for example, landed at No. 12, after CEO Eric Yuan topped Comparably’s Best CEOs list for two years in a row.

Meanwhile, HubSpot (No. 5) is also recognised as the No. 1 company for women. It comes as no surprise then that Google – which is known for offering the best-paying jobs – beat other contenders on this year’s list of firms with the best global work cultures.

“Despite a challenging year due to the pandemic, these businesses are applauded by their teams for remaining flexible and innovative while fostering outstanding company culture,” said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar.
