Glassdoor's Best Places to Work 2022 announced

With COVID-19 still very much a looming presence, companies have had to continue to adapt to fit the new realities of the work economy. What started as brief action plans to cope with the rapid onset of the pandemic have evolved into long-term operational changes. With so much necessary change, it's no wonder the top winner on the Best Places to Work '22 list embraced flexibility and supported its employees in ways that made a difference during these turbulent times. NVIDIA's focus on providing a good work culture, work-life balance, and a supportive community pushed them to the top of the list.

Last year hundreds of thousands of employees left companies that were unwilling or unable to adapt to the new expectations set by pandemic life - expectations like true work-life balance, flexibility, remote or hybrid workplaces, better benefits, and more. NVIDIA and the others on the Best Places to Work '22 list prioritized these changes to ensure their employees felt supported.

Glassdoor's 100 Best Places to Work 2022 list features winning employers across a range of industries: technology, health care, real estate, retail, travel and tourism, consulting, finance and others. Notably, many technology companies made our '22 list thanks in part to their flexible work environments and a focus on creating a better employee experience.

In addition to recognizing the 100 companies on our 2022 Best Places to Work list for the U.S. Large Employers (defined as more than 1,000 employees), Glassdoor also compiled Best Places to Work lists for U.S. Small & Medium Companies (fewer than 1,000 employees), as well as across Canada, UK, France, and Germany.
