Everyone loves a good list. If you’re a blogger, you know that a good list will drive a good amount of traffic. However, there is still a couple of lists that hold significant interest and weight. FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work for is one of those lists.
One surprise this year was the number of healthcare companies that made the list. Twelve. Twelve healthcare companies made it. This got me thinking that with all the bad economic times and troubles in the world, can helping people mean more than money and perks.
I look up some research and found this interesting quote: “Happiness lies at the intersection between pleasure and meaning. Whether at work or at home, the goal is to engage in activities that are both personally significant and enjoyable.”
Looking at this list of companies whose employees speak highly of their workplace is inspirational and this year it seemed a little softer, healthier, happier. And that is a good thing.
