1.Hilton

A few years ago, while in downtown Cleveland for the opening of a brand-new Hilton hotel, Chris Nassetta had a chance to try on the staff uniforms. “I put on a housekeeper’s jacket and I’m like, Wow, this is heavy,” the Hilton CEO told Fortune recently. “It didn’t feel very comfortable or flexible, and I’m thinking, We got this wrong—we’re not giving them the right clothing to wear.” Nassetta and his team decided that changes were in order; in early 2018 the company launched a partnership with Under Armour to have the sports apparel giant redesign lighter, more comfortable work wear.

That’s just one of several ­employee-focused changes that have crowned the 100-year-old Hilton as the Best Company to Work For in America. It’s sweet validation for Nassetta, who upon taking the reins at Hilton in 2007 found an organization that “had lost our way a bit,” he said. “We forgot that we are a business of people serving people, and the corporate environment got very disconnected from the front line.”

80. Workiva

Employees refer almost a third of new hires—and win cash prizes in return—so it’s no wonder they feel “at home” here. Many get started at the enterprise software company as part of its 90-person intern class but stay for the virtually free health insurance and frequent face time with managers and executives (a staff group liaises with HR brass to elevate suggestions).

    Thanks to hear!

    For some of the Best Companies, it wasn’t the long list of perks that were acknowledged when describing what made the company “great”, but rather the pride employees took in a job-well-done or the extreme commitment associates showed to customer service. Understandably, enjoying what you do or having passion for your company’s product or service is a huge plus.
