ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the third year in a row, World Wide Technology (WWT) has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 10th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor. WWT ranked 8th on the Best Places to Work in 2018 list and 5th on the Best Places to Work in 2017 list.
“We’re thrilled to accept this award from Glassdoor and our amazing employees,” said WWT CEO Jim Kavanaugh, who was also named one of Glassdoor’s Highest Rated CEOs for 2017. “From on-site healthcare centers to tread-desk stations and a new, inviting global headquarters, WWT constantly works toward its mission of creating a profitable growth company that is also a great place to work. I’m extremely proud of the company culture that WWT has sustained throughout the years.”
“We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognize employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best – the employees,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. “Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our tenth anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
“Most companies talk culture,” wrote an anonymous WWT employee via Glassdoor. “At World Wide, it is a way of life. Not forced on you, but taken on by you very personally. I come to work every day feeling like I am a guardian of our culture. Live it daily and set the example. My coworkers are the same way and the end result is the best work environment you can ever ask for. I’m relatively new and have never seen anything like this in my career of over 15 years. You’re surrounded by people who also live and breathe the culture and are extremely talented. There are no barriers. This is a team. My manager and my manager’s manager are incredible people who I can talk to about anything in our business without worry of politics – leaders! They inspire me to be better through leadership – not scare tactics or micromanagement. The benefits are phenomenal and this is an absolute world class company. I am so proud to be part of the World Wide Team! #WeDoIt.”
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
