The best places to work in Europe and North America as ranked by employees
Job site Glassdoor has announced the winners of its 11th annual Employees’ Choice Awards, honouring the Best Places to Work in 2019 across North America and parts of Europe. The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards are based on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback, by completing a company review about their job, work environment and employer over the past year.
When employees submit reviews about their employer on Glassdoor, they are asked to share their opinion on some of the best reasons to work for their employer (pros), any downsides (cons) and are encouraged to provide advice to management. In addition, employees are asked to rate how satisfied they are with their employer overall, rate their CEO as well as rate key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation & benefits, work/life balance, senior management and culture & values. Employees are also asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend and whether they believe their employer’s six-month business outlook is positive, negative or if they have no opinion.
This year, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards feature six categories, honouring the Best Places to Work across the US, Canada, UK, France and Germany.
