AMERICA'S Greatest Workplaces 2024

But in April, Gallup reported that U.S. worker engagement hit an 11-year low, falling to 30 percent of full- and part-time employees feeling "highly involved and enthusiastic about their work and workplaces." This was down 3 percentage points from the number of workers who felt the same way in just the last quarter of 2023. Gallup added that the drop was most noticeable among remote, hybrid and younger workers. To spotlight the companies whose employees find it easy to stay engaged, Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group are releasing the second-annual ranking of America's Greatest Workplaces. The companies featured here show that, even in the face of waning enthusiasm among much of the workforce, it is still possible to create a great environment that facilitates engagement. Throughout 2022 and 2023, more than 250,000 U.S. employees were interviewed for the ranking, resulting in more than 1.5 million company reviews spanning 78 individual sectors. The survey covered topics like compensation and benefits, training and career progression, work-life balance and company culture.

Also, post-survey desk research considered each ranked company's online mentions, diversity and inclusion ratings and reviews of senior management. The highly regarded companies ranked here likely enjoy stronger client relationships and higher retention rates because better workplaces benefit everyone.
