Regardless of specific market niche, technology companies share similar workforce and workplace challenges: how to attract and retain the best talent, how to reward employees (in a field where players are
fiercely competitive about their workplace perks!), and how to keep employees innovating.
While media attention usually focuses on tech’s outlandish perks – like InfusionSoft’s company Camaro for the employee of the month, Go Daddy’s prizes like 40” plasma TVs for top performers, or Google’s famed gourmet cafeterias and on-site bowling alley – what sets these companies apart as workplaces are the philosophies and practices they have designed to keep employees engaged, enthusiastic and thinking like owners.
Great Place to Work® has been searching for the world’s best workplaces for 25 years, and studying what makes them tick.
