Glassdoor just released its annual list of the best companies to work for, rating employers by their anonymous feedback of their workforces.
In the US rankings, software company HubSpot claimed the number one position, gaining kudos for its efforts to create “a truly diverse and inclusive work environment where everyone can feel comfortable bringing their true selves to work.”
"Workers are increasingly prioritising culture over cash and research consistently shows that culture is the leading driver of long-term employee satisfaction," said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist. "That said, business leaders have quantifiable proof that culture is one of the smartest investments they could make for the success and longevity of their companies. However, being a culture-first organisation isn't about expensive perks, but about articulating a clearly-stated mission that resonates with employees' own aspirations and fuels their best performance."
