Salesforce is honored to once again be named to Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list for 2019, ranked at #2. Fortune’s list recognizes workplace cultures where employees take pride in their work, enjoy working with their colleagues, and appreciate their work environment. Salesforce was ranked at #1 on the list last year, has appeared on it for 11 years in a row, and is the highest ranked technology company.
"The thanks for this recognition goes to our employees who create a great place to work for each other by living our values of trust, customer success, innovation, and equality every day," Salesforce Chief People Officer Cindy Robbins wrote on the Salesforce Blog.
How do companies make it into the Top 100? Fortune partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct an extensive employee survey: two-thirds of a participating company’s score is based on the results of the institute’s anonymous Trust Index survey, and the other third is based on responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about hiring practices, communication methods, diversity efforts, and more.
“Inclusion pays at Salesforce, which has spent $8.7 million over three years to address differences in pay across gender and race,” Fortune reports. “As for wellness? The goals system, V2MOMs (Vision, Values, Methods, Obstacles, Measures), now includes well-being objectives alongside more traditional career mileposts.” A detailed breakdown of how Salesforce achieved its ranking is available here.
In addition, we are very proud to have been ranked first on Fortune’s 2018 Best Places to Work for Giving Back list, and to appear on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies List for six years in a row. Here are two good resources for finding out more about our company culture and values:
