Of 6,200 companies across the globe boasting 11.9 million total employees, Google has been named 2014’s best workplace in the world.
For the third year in a row, the search giant topped the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces List unveiled today by global consulting firm Great Place to Work (GPTW). Other notable performers included Microsoft and Marriott (numbers 6 and 7, respectively), as well as eBay, 24, and Coca-Cola, 25.
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.
