Hitting newsstands May 28 in the June 2019 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Collecting data on nearly 2,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 346 finalists.
Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. The organization then ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work—besting last year’s 72.1 percent.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It’s a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“Getting caught up in business mode can sometimes distract employers from other important priorities, such as employee satisfaction. If your employees aren’t happy, there’s no way your clients are happy,” says Executive Vice President Stephen Finnegan. “I believe Makers Nutrition continues to score so highly on the Inc. surveys because our management prioritizes full employee engagement - we take the time to listen to all concerns and quickly follow through with lasting solutions. Our success is built on having a great business model executed by great people. One component cannot work without the other. Our team members know they are trusted, valued and appreciated!”
All companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and be U.S.-based privately held, and independent—that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 99 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost
- 49 percent allow employees to bring pets to work
- 65 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge
- 16 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. Magazine Editor-in-Chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from.”
