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.
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 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.
