Google appeared for the first year on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for list, created by Great Place to Work Institute.
While recent press has focused on Google’s incredible employee benefits, these perks and practices are just accessories to Google’s strong foundation: treat people with respect, support creative endeavors and don’t be evil.
These beliefs have enabled Google to create a culture where brainy, creative, entrepreneurial people could thrive.
The Great Place to Work Conference is an annual learning and networking event featuring leaders who have created award-winning workplaces.
Speakers from Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for and the “Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America” share stories, best practices and tips on how to create a workplace culture built on trust.
“The conference creates a community for executives and HR leaders committed to building great workplace cultures, who share stories and brainstorm solutions with professionals who share their commitment to creating a great place to work,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Great Place to Work Institute director of education services. “We are proud to highlight speakers like Laszlo Bock, who have shown exceptional leadership in creating the type of workplace where trust is foundational.”
