SAS #2 in Fortune Best Companies to Work For


Seems like we've been here before.

It is January, so time again to announce the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in the US. This year SAS is at #2, our fifth straight year in the top 3, over which our average rank has been 1.8.

We've covered this topic a couple of times before (2011: Best Company to Work For -- Again and 2013: What good is being a "great place to work"?), so you can refer to these previous blog posts for details. But I would like to point out a nice video that appeared on NBC's Today show this morning. (My only disappointment is that, just like when they shot Iron Man 3 in my building in 2012, I wasn't invited to represent the face of SAS. Apparently I have a face better suited to blogging.)

The best part of being a great place to work is that it provides a great environment for providing value to customers. None of this matters and none of this will last -- none of the perks or anything else -- unless SAS employees can deliver software and services that make a difference. That's what we are trying to do, and shown we can do, through 38 consecutive years of profitable growth.
