Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in 2017

Today’s employees are more likely to share opinions about their companies on sites like Glassdoor and Yelp. This new type of transparency within the workplace has created a need to cultivate positive reviews and manage negative reviews before they become public information. A prime example of company reviews is Glassdoor’s ‘Best Places to Work’ list, which was recently released.




Glassdoor’s top places to work for in 2017 all shared major similarities. Most importantly, employee feedback was consistently positive regarding company CEO’s, culture, compensation, and management. The study found the five best places to work were:

  1. Bain & Company
  2. Facebook
  3. Boston Consulting Group
  4. Google
  5. World Wide Technology

Anonymity in workforce reviews create total transparency and make these ratings highly trusted. One study revealed that 83% of job seekers base their decision on where to apply for a job on company reviews, and 46% weigh a company’s reputation heavily before accepting a job offer.

However, online company reviews are but a small piece of the puzzle. They can only measure situations that already exist in your organization.

Being proactive has the potential to do more than just boost employee retention and attract top talent. It has the power to boost profitability. A Forbes article recently estimated that Fortune 500 companies lose roughly $31.5 billion a year by failing to implement successful knowledge management practices.
