Criteria for Selecting Fortune’s Best Companies to Work For

Fortune Magazine just released it’s 2012 Best Companies to Work For.  The new rankings haven’t changed drastically from those of 2011, with Google, SAS, BCG, Wegmans, and NetApp remaining among the very top.

How does Fortune select these companies? Well, the companies are actually evaluated by The Great Place to Work Institute, using an interesting model which you can see here.

The model says that what’s most valuable to employees are the following criteria: Trust, Credibility, Fairness, Pride, Respect, and Camaraderie.

What do companies do to facilitate this trust, credibility, fairness, pride, respect, and camaraderie?  If you look at the descriptions for each company, you’ll find that they reward them financially, communicate, and boost morale (for more on how to do these things, click here).  Basically, they value their employees and they show them through their actions.

What other specific qualities make a company a great place to work for?
