From a list of 6,200 companies across the globe, Google has been selected as 2014’s best workplace in the world by Great Places to Work. For the third year in a row, the search giant topped the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces List with other notable performers including Microsoft and Marriott, as well as eBay and Coca-Cola.
While an employee survey regarding workplace culture comprised two-thirds of each company’s ranking, the other third was determined by a third-party assessment of company policies and practices. GPTW says its study is the largest of its kind.
Overall, the firm reported that levels of employee trust, camaraderie and pride had risen within top-performing companies; all of which are crucial factors in determining employee engagement and business success. “The best are getting better,” GPTW said.
The full list of top 25 multinational workplaces include:
2. SAS Institute
4. W.L. Gore & Associates
10. American Express
12. SC Johnson
