Salesforce is once again included in Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces in Technology list for 2019. The tech giant remained unfazed in the third spot for three years in a row since 2017. How did Salesforce manage to enjoy such a good standing on this prestigious list?
The Honor of Being Chosen Again and Again
Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces in Technology list is a collection of companies that are deemed great places to work for a variety of reasons. They come up with the winners by analyzing U.S. employees’ feedback on work conditions across several tech companies in the country. Fortune partners with Great Place to Work for researching these companies.
This year’s edition of Best Workplaces in Technology grouped small and medium tech companies together and separated large companies to form two lists that contain 25 individual companies each, for a total of 50 companies.
Salesforce lands the third spot for the Large Companies list. This is the third time Salesforce bagged the honors – initially in 2017 and again in 2018. The cloud computing giant went to Twitter to say that they are “incredibly humbled” to bag the honor of being included in the list for the third time in a row.
How Salesforce Kept Their Spot
Great Place to Work reported that 93% of Salesforce employees said their company is an amazing place to launch and develop a career in information technology. They further elaborated the reasons why they deem their company is a great technology workplace:
- Great contributions to the community’s welfare
- A welcoming atmosphere everywhere they go
- Honest and ethical business practices
- Flexible times off work as an employee deems necessary
- A strong family-like bond between colleagues and management
