25 Best Global Companies - November 9th, 2011

Who qualifies? Companies must have appeared on at least five national Great Place to Work lists, have at least 5,000 employees worldwide, and at least 40% of their global workforce must work outside of the company's home country.

Lets see the list now

You would be guessing the APPLE must be leading this list but we are sorry. It is MICROSOFT.

MICROSOFT

Headquarters: Redmond, WA, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 69,900
Rank: 1

What makes it so great?

After Microsoft employees voiced their desire to contribute more to their communities, the software company gifted its workers with 40 paid hours a year to dedicate to volunteer activities -- ranging from working in a soup kitchen once a week to spending a week building an orphanage. Bill Gates' brainchild also supports employees who are new parents: In Norway, where maternity and paternity leaves are quite generous at the federal level, Microsoft hosts a "Junior Lunch" every quarter, allowing new parents on leave to come to the office for a lunch with their children, keeping the working parents in touch with their colleagues and up-to-date with office happenings.

"Microsoft is a place where you can be yourself," says an employee. "It's expected that you have an opinion, and there are multiple opportunities to really make a contribution to the company and to society. Unless you work here, it is hard to believe the passion that people display."

SAS

Headquarters: Cary, NC, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 2,430
Rank: 2
What makes it so great?

SAS, a business analytics and business intelligence software company, doesn't outsource its North Carolina headquarters maintenance staff, preferring that its crews of gardeners, food service employees, and health care staff are SAS employees. Many SAS-ers also take pride in the company's Curriculum Pathways program. Free of charge for all educators in the U.S., the interactive program provides standards-based resources in English, science, mathematics, social studies, and Spanish for over 50,000 American teachers. With initiatives like this, the company stays true to its mission -- to enhance people's ability to use information and create knowledge -- and sets a great example for its staff. "It is, by far, the best place I have worked in more than 15 years of working within the industry," raves an employee.

NetApp

Headquarters: Sunnyvale, CA, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 5,123
Rank: 3
What makes it so great?

The 'Catch Somebody Doing Something Right' initiative, started by Vice Chairman Tom Mendoza 17 years ago and informally kept alive since, rewards NetApp employees of all levels for deeds that positively reflect the computer storage and data management company's culture. Mendoza makes 30 calls, 5 minutes each, a week and personally thanks staffers for their impressive behavior. "NetApp makes you feel that you are part of a bigger picture. Every effort you make to do [your] job really means something to the organization as a whole," says an employee.

After NetApp was forced to reduce its global workforce by 5%u0025 in 2009, the company's execs went on a global tour, stopping by their offices in 13 different countries to raise company morale. The initiative worked: The next 12 months brought record numbers, including a 60% increase in the company's stock price.

GOOGLE

Headquarters: Mountain View, CA, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 29,321
Rank: 4

What makes it so great?

Though Google has grown tremendously since its startup days -- the company hired 31.9%u0025 more employees this year than last -- the behemoth Internet company still operates like one in many ways, says an employee. "The amount of direct exposure we get to leadership and the fact that the well-being of employees is held in such high regard [are both] incredible."

With initiatives like 20% time (engineers are encouraged to spend 20% of their time brainstorming and developing new Google-related content, even if it never materializes), Googlers retain the innovative spirit that often gets lost as small companies grow into larger ones.

The company also provides mentoring programs for its workers: In Google to Googler (g2g) classes, employees train each other on technology, business, and personal interests and in gWhiz, any Google employee globally can register to answer questions or provide mentorship on an area of expertise.

FedEX Express

Headquarters: Memphis, TN, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 24,600
Rank: 5
What makes it so great?

Next time a FedEx courier smiles as he/she hands you a package (if you live in the Middle East or Europe), be sure to go online and fill out a customer service form -- you could help that employee win the Courier of the Year competition. Couriers are rated by customers based on politeness, presentation, and helpfulness. In 2010, The company received 7,659 nominations -- and the winners' faces beam on posters in FedEx Express offices across the region.

The delivery service provider also has an online recruitment tool, Career Hub, which allows employees to track new job opportunities within the company and plan their careers.

CISCO

Headquarters: San Jose, CA, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 40,040
Rank: 6
What makes it so great?

Every other month, Cisco CEO John Chambers invites employees whose birthdays fall within the designated two-month period to an informal Q&A with the head honcho himself. Those not located in its sunny San Jose headquarters can join the chat via Cisco TelePresence locations and TV broadcasts.

The company also offers job sharing, onsite childcare and, in France, pre-first day training. Through an interactive website, new employees learn all about Cisco's mission and its culture, allowing for a smooth transition on the first day. This type of training is representative of the management chops the company boasts.

MARRIOTT

Headquarters: Bethesda, MD, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 11,691
Rank: 7
What makes it so great?

The "In the Beginning" introductory course, required at all Marriott hotels in Mexico, involves three days of interactive sessions that expose new hires to the Marriott culture. (A graduation ceremony and a one-night stay in the hotel are some of the spoils included in completing the course.)

The hotel company also begins every shift -- in every department worldwide -- with a "stand-up" meeting, where leaders highlight the goings-on in the company, acknowledge excellent associate behavior and birthdays, and discuss the company's numbers. "There are so many associates that have been with the company for so long. [You gain] a wonderful second family, with friendships that last for years," says an employee.

McDonald's

Headquarters: Oakbrook, IL, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 24,100
Rank: 8
What makes it so great?

The fast-food giant cares about its employees' talents in the kitchen -- and on the stage. McDonald's Peru encourages workers to participate in the "Voice of McDonald's" program, which is basically an American Idol with a Golden Arches twist. The top 16 singers (each gets a plus one) receive an all-expenses paid trip to the McDonald's Global Convention in Orlando, Florida, to compete against one another for the winning title -- and a prize of $25,000 and a possible recording contract.

Fun aside, the company ensures that all employees receive fair treatment. In the UK, McDonald's has partnered with Job Centre Plus to provide jobs for long-term unemployed applicants and with Remboy, which helps disabled and disadvantaged unemployed citizens. "This company cares about people -- developing them, training them and giving them the tools to do their job confidently and effectively. There's a great training system, and also a clear focus of where we are and where we are going," an employee says.

KIMBERLY-CLARK

Headquarters: Irving, TX, USA
2010 Revenue ($ millions): 19,700
Rank: 9
What makes it so great?

There's no better place to have a conversation than over a cup of coffee -- and the management teams at Kimberly-Clark offices in Central America get that. At the "KC Caf%u00E9," employees can chat with administrative and operational employees about worries, cares, and career advice. A different leader hosts the initiative once every two months, hoping to break down the walls between boss and employee.

The same offices host an annual Mother's Day celebration, rewarding its mom-employees with a catered breakfast and, in 2010, a "spa" with food, drinks, and gifts. The company also offers onsite child-care and job sharing, making parenting a bit easier for KC workers. According to an employee, this healthy and happy environment is also common in the offices: "People are transparent; problems are solved in the moment, which prevents comments in the hallways -- and resentment."
