The world's best multinational workplaces

Google, SAS Institute, and NetApp have been ranked as the top three multinational workplaces, for demonstrating rising levels of "trust, camaraderie and pride."

This year's ranking has been selected from amongst 6,200 companies worldwide, assessed on the basis of employee surveys, and company policies.

What are the best workplaces doing to improve their cultures? "They are taking steps to ensure that promotions go to those who best deserve them, to increase transparency, and to encourage employees to balance work and life," said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work.

Google, which tops the list, first appeared in the national workplaces list for Ireland and has featured prominently since.

It is followed by SAS Institute ranked second for a consecutive year, where CEO Jim Goodnight said, "Our philosophy has been focused on people and well-being since day one."

The company supports education as part of young people's success, particularly in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

CEO of third-ranked NetApp used the used "improving" to describe the company's culture. "There are specific elements of our value that we want to work on. Culture matters, it is very important to our business."

The company has a Guiding Coalition in place, an employee-based team passionate about making change happen.

At fourth-ranked W. L. Gore & Associates, every associate has a sponsor who is actively committed to their success. One of them said, "There is a network of people behind me encouraging me to be successful."

Belcorp, at fifth place, is the highest ranking newcomer as well as the highest ranking Peruvian company.
