NORWALK, Conn., March 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FactSet, a leading provider of integrated financial information and analytical applications, is once again one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For®, ranking 89. The only Connecticut-based company to make the list, FactSet was recognized for its focus on career development and providing employees a variety of opportunities and experiences to learn.
FactSet was selected among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the list this year, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about its programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
“Awards like this are especially meaningful because the perspectives of our employees are an important part of the selection process,” explained FactSet CEO Philip Snow, “Our almost 8,000 global employees are central to our ability to deliver the best insight and information to our clients around the globe and this reinforces that FactSet truly is a great place to start and build a career.”
In addition to providing a positive environment for employees, FactSet is specifically recognized for its comprehensive health benefits package, available at minimal or no cost to employees.
“This year’s 100 best workplaces show – again – that trust fuels financial performance,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Great workplaces have significantly less turnover, outperform peers in the stock market and enjoy high levels of collaboration, communication and trust—crucial ingredients to innovation. The 100 best are setting the standard for all businesses.”
FactSet also ranked a Best Workplace for Diversity, a Best Workplace for Women, and a Best Workplace for Millennials in 2015 by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
