companies with happiest employees 2018


It’s kind of important that you actually, at least a little bit, like the company you for, right? Considering that most of us spend more of our waking hours at work than we do anywhere else, yes it is.

And while most of us will never have our “dream job,” we can still have a career where we don’t hate ourselves and everyone around us for 8-plus hours a day.

In fact, there are some companies out there where the employees who work for them really, really like their jobs.

This month, the folks over at Comparably, a compensation and careers site, released the results of their very thorough year-long survey which identifies the 25 large and 25 small/mid-size companies in America in which employees are the happiest.

Comparably Awards are derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their employers on Comparably.com between September 12, 2017 and September 12, 2018. There were no fees or costs associated with participating, nor was nomination required. During the year-long eligibility period, Large companies (organizations with more than 500 employees) must have a minimum of 50 employee participants and Small/Mid-Size companies (businesses with fewer than 500 employees) must have a minimum of 15 employee participants to qualify. Winners were determined based on a series of questions employees were asked related to happiness at their place of employment. The answer to each question was given a numerical score and then compared to companies of similar size across the U.S. Additional weight was given to scores at companies with more participation from their employee base. The final data set was compiled from over 5 million ratings across 45,000 U.S. companies on Comparably.com.
