For the seventh time in 10 years, Google (Alphabet) remains on top of Fortune's 100 Best Companies To Work For 2016.
Fortune identifies and ranks the companies in the list through a partnership with the Great Places to Work Institute, which conducts the most extensive survey among employees in the United States. Two-thirds of the score comes from the Trust Index Employee Survey, which asks questions related to management and job satisfaction. The remaining one-third comes from the Culture Audit, which asks questions about benefits and internal communication.
"[T]hanks to sparking the imagination of its talented and highly compensated workers, and by adding perks to an already dizzying array of freebies," Fortune says. The publication added that Google improved health care coverage for its employees in 2015 by offering virtual doctor consultations, in-house breast cancer screenings, among other things.
A Google employee described the perks that they receive as phenomenal, with the benefits including three organic meals daily with unlimited snacks, tea and artisan coffee, free personal fitness classes and nap pods. The list of perks seems endless.
Rounding out the top 5 are Acuity Insurance, The Boston Consulting Group, Wegmans Food Markets and Quicken Loans.
While a tech company holds the top spot, the tech industry is not dominant in the list. The list has been running for 19 years, and of the 12 companies that have been on the list since its launch, only Cisco and SAS are in the tech industry.
The 2016 list also features six newcomers, namely Veterans United Home Loans at No. 30, Hilton Worldwide at No. 56, Power Home Remodeling at No. 59, Encompass Home Health and Hospice at No. 69, First American Equipment at No. 94 and Slalom at No. 100.
All in all, the 100 companies on the list have 1.6 million employees in the United States and 2.5 million more employees globally. The companies also collectively have more than 100,000 job openings, and looking through the list will give applicants a good idea on which ones are the best to send in their resumes to.
