Ford Motor Company has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the 50 Best Places to Work for 2015. The Glassdoor award program aims to recognize the best places to work in the United States based entirely on employee feedback, providing a transparent look at companies.
Ford ranks 35 out of 50 Best Places to Work in the United States among employers with 1,000 employees or more, and is the highest-rated automotive company. Work/life balance, competitive pay and benefits, and the opportunity for internal movement were cited among reasons to work for Ford.
“Our employees are our best ambassadors, and Ford being honored as a Glassdoor Best Places to Work is truly a pride point,” said Felicia Fields, Ford group vice president, Human Resources and Corporate Services. “At Ford, we focus on creating the right environment for people to learn and grow, and this award confirms we are doing the right things to attract, develop and engage employees. Ford truly has exciting products, incredible technologies and a fantastic team.”
The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award program relies solely on the input of employees who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor’s anonymous online company reviews survey.
The survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine inside look at what it is like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies, as well as any downsides.
This is not Ford’s first appearance on the list; in 2011, the company was named No. 42 on the 50 Best Places to Work in the United States list. For 2015, Ford moved up seven places.
“I am proud to celebrate the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award winners in earning this tremendous achievement,” said Glassdoor cofounder and CEO Robert Hohman. “Millions of employees around the world are turning to Glassdoor each month to share their work experiences. It is this type of authentic feedback that helps others find jobs and companies they love, and allows us to honor employers who stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.”
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees who participated in the survey between Nov. 13, 2013 and Nov. 2, 2014. To be considered for the large company category, a company must have at least 1,000 employees and have received at least 50 company reviews during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
