March 5, 2015
FactSet, a leading provider of integrated financial information and analytical applications to global investment professionals, has been named one of the 2015 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For®, ranking 48 among the overall 100 companies.
The list, now in its 18th year, recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures. This is FactSet’s seventh appearance on the list.
FactSet was selected among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the list this year. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
Creators of the methodology behind the list, Great Place to Work® has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.
“FactSetters, as we call ourselves, are proud of the spirit of teamwork that we cultivate. This spirit creates a friendly, innovative place to work,” said FactSet CEO Philip A. Hadley. “Awards like this one confirm that our camaraderie, creativity, and focus on employees are truly unique.”
In addition to providing a positive environment for employees, FactSet is specifically recognized for its comprehensive benefits package, available at minimal or no cost to employees.
“It is no coincidence that the 100 best workplaces are also extremely profitable and successful companies,” said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Research by our firm definitively showcases that the best places to work outperform their competitors. There is an absolute ROI when companies invest in creating a high-trust workplace culture. Great workplaces have significantly less turnover and produce employees who have a vested interest in the company.”
