SAS tops the list, again


I'm not even at work yet, but I've already learned that SAS has been ranked as the #1 workplace on the Fortune 100 list for 2011.

SAS was also number 1 last year in 2010, and has been high on the list since its inception.

I'm sure there will be celebrations at headquarters today. I hope to take part, but I'll be away from the office for a bit to volunteer at my children's school. I feel very fortunate to have the kind of job and employer that allows this flexibility, helping me to achieve a great work/life balance. It's this sort of policy that makes SAS the #1 employer in my book, regardless of the Fortune rankings.

  1. Volunteerism is just one of the many things that SAS promotes in it's employees that I find so inspiring and rewarding.

    Dr. Jim Goodnight stated "SAS starts with the belief that we are in the business of people - whether that is with customers, employees, or business contacts" and I think this is a fundamental principle for SAS' ongoing success. Customers prefer to work with individuals who are not just professional, but positive. Therefore keeping employees happy & engaged improves the relationship with customers.
