Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has triumphed over its rivalss, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), according to Glassdoor’s list of top 50 best companies to work. On Fox Business, Glassdoor’s CEO, Robert Hohman talked about what makes Google the best in business in this category.
“[…] What Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has done is that they have sort of borrowed the agile development methodology and applied it to HR. They are interviewing their employees frequently and they are trying to respond very rapidly to what they need, and what they heard Googlars needed as the employee base ages is more support in work-life balance […],” said Hohman.
This greater support for employees that Hohman talked about was found lacking in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) at least to the extent that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) showed commitment for that cause. The measures involving facilitating its workforce included increased maternity leave, introduction of maternity leave, and revamped onsite day care, according to Hohman.
Although Google has made it to the list seven times in a row, this is the first time that the tech giant has secured the number 1 spot. Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) dropped from the fifth position to number thirteen this year. Hohman mentioned that as the company is growing in size it is becoming harder for the company’s management to address the issues plaguing its staff.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) also got a promotion on the list along with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and moved to mid twenties position from the mid thirties place that it had occupied consistently over the past years.
For investors, such lists can provide an insight into which companies have a culture that inspires greater innovation. This was a concern with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) as well as many investors worried if Tim Cook provide an environment for its employees that as conducive for innovation as Steve Jobs did. Apparently he is pretty much succeeding in that department.
