Many organizations have focused their efforts on creating an environment where employees consider it to be a great place to work. As a result, organizations have made improvements to create this environment. Such improvements include strategies, such as a) the increase of employees participating in the decision making process that pertain to their jobs, b) more flexibility in regards to employees balancing work life and home life, and c) increased accessibility to ask questions of senior management and get answers to questions. In order for organizations to become a great place to work and obtain a rating on the Fortune 100 Best Places to Work for (2004) list, it is necessary to create an environment in which trust, pride, and camaraderie are explicit. To become a great place to work other companies could benchmark and modify their policies to match those of Wegmans, Paychex, and Genencor. This study will describe what constitutes the best place to work, go into further detail what organizations did successfully to get on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work for (2004) list and discuss the advantages for an organization to be on Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For (2004) list.
