ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the seventh year in a row, World Wide Technology (WWT) is one of the 2018 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and Fortune. Earlier this month, WWT was also named one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Giving Back.
The 100 Best Companies to Work For list is based on survey responses from more than 310,000 employees rating their workplace culture on 50-plus elements of the workplace. These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and workplace traits linked to innovation. The ranking accounted for the experiences of all employees including women, people of color, LGBT individuals, older team members, and disabled employees.
This year marks the 21st anniversary of the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list, and 2018 winners continue to show that a high-trust culture for all fuels better business results. Great Place to Work research shows that list winners keep outperforming the stock market, beating industry rivals when it comes to talent retention and demonstrating higher levels of productivity than peers.
“We are so excited to be included on the 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the seventh year in a row, as well as the Best Workplaces for Giving Back list,” said Ann Marr, vice president of Global Human Resources at WWT. “Our employees are the most important part of our business and we will continue to invest in them through a strong workplace culture, creativity and innovation, workforce diversity, global cultural awareness and robust benefit programs.”
“The 2018 100 Best are true leaders,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In the face of competition, change, and financial constraints, they consistently prioritize building the trust, pride, and camaraderie that fuels business performance. And they’re doing it at scale for everyone, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.”
