Key To Being A Best Place Work?.... has just published its 50 Best Places To Work. The results are based on employee feedback and input provided anonymously. The top 5 companies were:

  • Southwest Airlines
  • General Mills
  • Slalom Consulting
  • Bain and Company
  • McKinsey and Company

One effective feature of the list is that you can click on a company and see what makes it a best place to work. There are a number of recurring themes, including:

  • Employees are given opportunities for growth.
  • The workplace environment is fun and positive.
  • My ideas are valued.

If any part of your job includes managing other people, I strongly encourage you to spend a few minutes going through the list and finding some fresh ideas to help improve the performance of your people. Who knows? One day your company may make the list.
