Do you work for one?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on July 27th, 2007

Do you work for a Best Place to Work company?

Fortune Magazine has a top 100 list of Best Places to Work companies and so do numerous regional Business Journals. What does it take to be a Best Place to Work company? You might prefer to work for one of these companies - if you had the choice.

I don’t know about you, but I worked for years in various corporate cultures and looking back, only one of them was a great place to work. Since then, even that once-friendly outfit has grown big and impersonal.

The few people I know who still work there say they are not appreciated, management doesn’t really want to hear what they have to say and people don’t do what they said they’d do. It’s not much fun any more.

I’m self-employed now, but I’m still very interested in what makes a company a Best Place to Work. Thank goodness there’s a powerful movement in this country toward Best Places to Work companies. There are many good outcomes from this trend:

  The best talent wants to work at BPTW companies and employee turnover drops.

  Job satisfaction goes way up and these companies become more successful and profitable as well.

Business thought leaders and business publications are paying attention. Here’s the most recent 2007 Fortune Magazine list. Many who are on the list won’t be there next year. Why? They don’t really know what got them there.

There are 10 primary factors that are found in Best Place to Work companies. There is a special company that knows the factors, knows what it takes and specializes in helping CEO’s develop their companies into Best Places to Work companies.  If you want to know more about this important trend, check out The Best Places to Work.com. I admit I have a special interest in their success.
